There is no "2019 Microsoft Award" lottery or sweepstakes, therefore, recipients of fake email messages like the one below, which claim they are winners in the same so-called lottery, are asked to delete the email messages and should not follow the instructions in them. The fake emails are being sent by lottery scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into believing they are lottery winners and subsequently trick them into sending their personal information and money.
