Email about Earning Money from United Nations is Fake and Scam

Today, I received email from a person claiming to be Mr. Ban Ki-Moon
UN Secretary General. The email stated that United Nations would give me $850,000 for nothing.
I normally do not give any value to this kind of emails as I know that it is fraud and scam. It is fake email. Secondly, earning even $850 needs a lot of hard work and people do not give money without any reason.
Anyway, I had this warning in Gmail too:
Warning: This message may not be from whom it claims to be. Beware of following any links in it or of providing the sender with any personal information.

Still, I am putting this email here because some people sometimes become greedy and suffer from fraud people. So, if you get this kind of email then never give any importance and just delete the mail right away.
Here is the email:
