Is Windows 8 offer an email hoax

I received an email from *** Email address is removed for privacy *** indicating an upgrade from Vista to Windows 8 Pro at a price of £24.99 or $39.99. I'm currently in Malaysia though I bought my pre-loaded Acer 5535 in my home city in the U.K. approximately 2 years ago. A friend of mine insists that the offer is not available in Malaysia and that the only offer here is an upgrade for units bought since June this year. I have thoroughly read the web site link  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/buy?ocid=GA8_O_WOL_SM_Meet_FPP_Null and its sub pages and see no indication that the offer is not available to me or that it is from a 3rd party selling a trial version with extras to pay for at a later stage.  Please advise.
