Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

This is most certainly a scam. It is what is known as a phishing scam. It is trying to trick you out of money basically using the microsoft name so you trust them.

If there is an attached file, possible a word document DO NOT open it or save it to your computer. It could very well be a virus.

Just go ahead and delete the email and you should be fine. You were right to question this emails legitimacy so be proud of yourself. Many people end up losing a lot of money because of these scams.

If you have further questions just let me know andplease do not forget to rate my service by clicking a smiley face below. That is how I get credit for assisting.
