Answer
Answer

It is a SCAM.

You have won nothing.

All they want is your money and private and confidential information to steal your identity.

Ignore and delete it.

"What is the Microsoft Lottery scam?"

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/safety/online-privacy/phishing-scams.aspx

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/or Sweepstakes, 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 have not won the "Microsoft Lottery"

Microsoft customers are often targets of a scam that uses email messages to falsely promise money. Victims receive messages claiming "You have won the Microsoft Lottery!" There is no Microsoft Lottery. Delete the message.

If you have lost money to this scam, report it to the Police. You can also send the police report to Microsoft and we will use it to help law enforcement catch the criminals who send out these e-mail messages.

Cheers.
