What do you think, should I reply to this email?

I received this email yesterday. Do you think it's legit? Maybe I should reply, huh?
I am Captain. Matthew Stamford with the United States Marine Corps (USMC). Hard to believe but, I have $900,000.00, found at the start of Operation Khanjari on July 4, in Poshteh Afghanistan. I need to move this money out to a safer place. Can I trust you to receive it on my behalf upon its evacuation from Kabul? send me a reply mail on matthew.stamford@hotmail.com

I put that name in Google search engine because I got the same email, only mine had a response mail of matthew-stamford@live.com...not hotmail.

Fraudulant emails are sure taking on newer faces.
