Microsoft Mega Jackpot Lottery / Scam?

1 Canada Review updated:

At 8:35 AM this morning I received an email that I had won much money and to only respond to the following email address "microagent_01@yahoo.co.uk". I did asking them to show me credentials they were legitimate. Probably won't hear back from them.

This is the first time I receive such an email. The only question I have is how did they get my email address? The only thing I have done differently in the past years is last week I subscribed to going online to do my banking with Royal Bank of Canada. Is it possible they accessed some information from them?
