Worst email scam ever

This arrived today, headed “Urgent response needed”:
Good-day This--mail--is--to--notify--you--that--your--email--has--won--$500,000--in--the--recent--held--Microsoft--online--promo--for--frequently--online--email--users--you--are--required--to--contact--us--back--with--the--details--below--for--claims.
Is the spelling and punctuation a clue? Why don’t they just say “I am a Nigerian crook – give me your money”? Isn’t it a bit insulting that they don’t even pretend to be plausible?

Anyone who responds to this deserves the epic fail awaiting them. Unless it is [insert name of your least-liked person].
