I received an email from Microsoft Award Team telling me that I had won 2 million dollars. It was signed by Dr. Elizabeth Henning. Is there any chance this could be legitimate?

No
if it seems to good it is most likely a scam

More chance of having a crypto virus that encrypts all your personal files hard drives and shared drives and cloud drives and then ransoms you to pay to hopefully get files un encrypted.
DO NOT CLICK on
any link or file attachment in the email
or they ask for your bank account details and personal information and drain your account balance .

Ask yourself Did they address you by your name are use a vague thing like dear customer or dear client ?
read this link below and recognize the same scam flavor of the warning given .

Got Certified Award Letter in mail stating I won above amt. Need to send $12.99


Sounds like a scam, smells like a scam. Regular mail or email? If email definitely a scam. Did you have to sign for the letter? What was the amount you supposedly won? If it runs to millions of dollars definitely a scam. Can you give me a name of the company or the full name of the person who signed the letter please. Post as a COMMENT to this post.

This hotmail email is true or false?


This is simply a mail from frauds. Keep safe distance from these kind of emails. Why would you expect to win money when you have never participated in it?


These kind of mails and messages are send to email IDs and mobile nos. very often and this is a very common phenomenon.


Next time, they will actually ask you for a bank account no. to which they want to send the money and basically they want to hack that account of course. Please avoid these e-mails for your own safety.
