It is so silly. They used the name of Microsoft and they gave security number and bela bela. It looks like it was from Microsoft. I was told I won 800 000 British pound. I was so happy though it lasted for half a day. I replied to them hastily without consulting other Internet sources like google, where finally I found out it was a stupid silly game.
Here is the copy of the email they sent me:

Microsoft not to be blamed

AUTHOR: Xbladedragonx - (U.S.A.)

These emails are from scammers. They will ask for your bank and social security information.

Scammers use high company names and even bank names, but in reality they are not even affiliated with the company. Replying to those emails could actually do you more harm. I suggest you check your financial information because this was not a "silly game." These people tried to get your information, and you actually gave them information. I wouldn't be surprised if you get massive email spam and massive phone calls from random companies.

Microsoft not to be blamed for this.
