That email is a scam.
A company will not give out money unless there is something in it for themselves? Due to the number of lottery scams no legitimate company would ever notify you by email that you have won a prize.
Every email that states you have won a lottery or there is money waiting for you is a scam. There will be a followup asking for a prepayment of some type of fee to receive the money. Haven't you noticed that even though you have won millions your name appears nowhere in the email? It may not even contain your email address. If people were winning millions every day it would be on the news with pictures of the lucky people.
Unless you enter a lottery or contest, such as with one of the magazine companies, any notification is a scam. If you win a million you will not be notified by email.
See this message from Yahoo: http://ycorpblog.com/2007/07/08/theres-n…
Scam!!!!! That message is both a fake and an outright fraud. Don't contact the phishers and give them any of your personal information at all. Don't give them not one cent of your money for "so called insurance and fees;" you'll never see it ever again. Spam that scam message straight into oblivion right away. This is one lottery you'll never win because it's "bogus." You'll have to pay some money to play in the government-sanctioned lottery.
Another thing, the phishers telling you to "keep this lottery information confidential" would indicate to you not to say anything about this to anybody until they have finished scamming you. That means you will risk making the phishers rich at your own expense while you'll be left holding the bag in the end.
Keep in mind companies such as Yahoo, Microsoft, Google, BMW, Coca Cola, the BBC, the UN, and others don't involve themselves in the lottery scams the phishers orchestrated. It's them who are using those companies' names as a front for their illegal activities.
That is a scam. Yahoo doesn't run lotteries.
Scam!!!!! That message is both a fake and an outright fraud.
