    I got something like that and I sent a copy in a email to Microsoft.
    I was told it was a scam and has been going on for a long time.
    I have also gotten a couple like it but with Western Union instead of Microsoft.
    I have also "won" every lottery in the world,without even buying a ticket.
    I have had a whole lot of "relatives" that I had no idea I had all over the world who have left money for me as next of kin.
    I have had people wanting to cut me in for a share of a whole lot of money if I would help them get it out of the country they were in.
    I have gotten "business proposals" from all over the world.
    My granmother told me once that if it sounds to good to be true then it isn't.
