Blow Your Top Land of the free, home of the naive

Comment: I did not see anything similar to the email scam I have recently
recieved, using the windows logo and mirosoft name and Bill Gates name. Is
this an old trick? How can they use these names without getting into legal
trouble?
Surely Bill Gates would not allow people to use his name to defraud
people.
Your prompt response will be appreciated.
