Scam alert! The E-mail above is a SCAM. It’s a Nigerian Lottery scam, the story and all names & roles are fake. The real Microsoft has nothing to do with this. These scammers will ask you for (more and more) money upfront as ‘costs’ before you get the ‘prize’ (which you will never get offcourse).
If you’ve received this by e-mail than mark it as SPAM (if possible) and/or DELETE it.
