Have gotten many of that type.. "You won a million-dollar Lotto"! "Your Inheritance Checque"! "New What's App" Message"! "Your Login to {so and so} failed"! "My Dear Friend"! "Miracle Health Aid"!
Any Email of that nature is a scam. I would never open any such Email, only view the header info. That is safer than opening the Email, and possibly infecting your system.
You should be able to set a spam filter so only known Emails come up, the suspicious ones go to the spam folder or are not received.
If viewed as a threat or scam, submit a report to http://www.ic3.gov .
