No such thing as Microsoft Award Lottery and only residents/citizens of UK can get any lottery winnings from UK. Based on my own personal research on such scams. Always research through search bar enter "Microsoft Award Lottery scams", just add scams after anything to see if there is a scam that has already been reported. Look for misspellings in email, good sign of a scam. Look at email address for clues compared to who sent it. Did it come directly from Microsoft, what organization is behind this lottery? You can type "Microsoft" for their main site and they'll have a CONTACT US address usually available at most any site.
