ALSO I WOULD LIKE TO SHOW YOU WHAT MICROSOFT HAS TO SAY :
What is the Microsoft Lottery scam?
The Microsoft Lottery scam is a fraud that usually starts with an email message that claims the recipient has won "The Microsoft Lottery."
There is no Microsoft Lottery, and any message of this kind is designed to engage you in a dialogue with cybercriminals who want to persuade you to send them money.
You might be asked to pay a sum of money in advance to cover costs such as tax fees, courier services, United Nations clearance checks, attorney fees, and many others. Once you've sent the money, the perpetrator will often re-contact you with a different story to convince you to pay more money to access the fictitious cash prize.
These stories can often be very clever and seem believable because they mention well-known companies and personalities such as Microsoft and Bill Gates to make them sound authentic.
For more information, see Avoid scams that use the Microsoft name fraudulently.
