    "Well known and respected company brands are often abused by scammers who want to add credibility or authenticity to their e-mail messages. As a result, Microsoft customers might receive e-mails that they have won a prize in the "The Microsoft Lottery." There is no such thing as a Microsoft Lottery. "
