ATTENTION MEGA PRIZE WINNER.

If there was any truth in the random email draws which I am supposed to have won each day, I would be uber, mega, stonkily rich.  I would be lying on a sunchair under a palm tree on a Pacific island sipping cocktails with a gorgeous hunky butler to answer my every whim.  Sadly I’m not doing any of those things.  I’m sitting at home writing this blog entry.  Why?  Because all those draws are scams.  This one is no exception.

Microsoft don’t hold random lottery draws.  This is a scammer who is hoping to take money from you by charging you fees.  Delete the email and don’t reply.
