Please check if this really from Yahoo?

I recieved mail from Yahoo "YOU WON $500! Yahoo! Mail congratulates you!, please get your money" . The message is that "Yahoo! Mail gives members random cash prizes. Today, your account has been selected as the one of 12 top winners accounts who will get cash prizes from us. Please click the link below and follow instructions on our web site. Your money will be paid directly to your e-gold, PayPal, StormPay or MoneyBookers account".

I tried to go in but I am required to pay USD 8.75 for the premium member of "Yahoo! Games" to the account 3901625 (3516968 Yahoo! Games). I need Yahoo staff to verify and confirm if this the real activity from real Yahoo and this is real e-gold account number of Yahoo for that activity. Please kindly help me to check.

Sorry that I'm unable to attach the said mail, I tried so many times but it fails to send out .

Thank you very much,

    an attempt to get personal account information is called phising.

    unfortunately I don't see a way to forward this to yahoo security. apparently they don't have such a department.

    mark it as spam. or if it was in your bulk e-mail folder, just delete

    Do not respond, this is someone wanting your account numbers. Yahoo does not operate this way. Click the Spam Option for that email.
