  • Sorry, but Microsoft never has and never will sponsor any sort of lottery.  What you received is a scam email message whose sole objective is to steal your personal information and/or identity.  Please delete this bogus email message at once!  Please review:  Avoid Advance Fee Fraud and other lottery scams
