The email was sent from the email address "John Thompson <williamchristopher897@gmail.com>", with the Reply-to address "corporationmicrosoft@aol.com" and the subject "Microsoft Corporation".

The email is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam with promises of a large sum of money being transferred to the victim. Anyone responding to it will be told that there is a fee/tax/insurance payment to be paid to receive the money. This will be followed by payment after payment until the victim runs out of money or realises that they are being scammed.

The email is an example of a Lottery Scam, where victims are told that their email address has won the lottery, despite the fact that they never entered alottery. Lotteries do not work like this, in real life you purchase a lottery ticket and cross your fingers. Only in the deluded minds of scammers are email addresses randomly picked to win a prize. Anyone responding to this email will be told that there is a fee/tax/insurance payment to be paid to receive the money. This will be followed by payment after payment until the victim runs out of money or realises that they are being scammed.
