There no "Microsoft Award Prize" lottery, therefore, recipients of emails like the one below are asked not to follow the instructions in them. This is because the emails are fakes being sent by lottery scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them money for a lottery that doesn't exist. Once the scammers receive the money from their victims, they will take it and disappear, and the victims will not receive the prize they were promised.
