Is there a yahoo lottery? A friend of mine received a message that he won a prize there. Is it real?

He is supposed to send personal data about him and the payment is to be done through a bank of Nigeria.

    I am a Nigerian and I can assure of two things

    1. It is a scam letter. If in doubt, do a Yahoo! Search on the cpmpany and sender name

    2. He will be disturbed until he replies. So tell him to mark the letter as scam(if he is on Yahoo)

    Use your creativity. Ever won a lottery in which you would have to literally buy your prize?

    Please forward a copy of the letter to EFCC
