    A good rule to go by - if you didn't enter a competition and someone is telling you you've won, the first thing you should think of is scam!!! This year I received a letter telling me I won money in a Spanish lottery, and I live in Australia and never even heard of it. They asked for all sorts of details too, including bank account details. Instead of replying I checked with Consumer Affairs which has a list of known scams and mine was on it. They end up telling you that they need money to clear paperwork, etc. and you end up paying and get nothing in return.

    I am thinking scam. Name, address, birth date, occupation, and bank account details? Could be an attempt at identity fraud. There's enough there to get a loan, or credit in your name. That with the bank account details and you could find your account a little short next time you check.

    Yes this is a scam. yahoo does not send email like this. all lottery winnings that is sent to your email is not legit. Why would you have to keep any winnings a secret,if you really won. You did not enter into any lotteries did u? Don not send any of your info to this person. As a matter of fact DO NOT any more mail that says you have won ANY MONEY. These e-mails usually comes from far away places. Ignore Ignore. cupkake

    Ever heard of Identity theft? I mean, come on, if you legitimately win something, they send it to you, no questions asked. In fact, where I live, NYS, you win something, they must send it to you without conditions or fees. If not, you report them for fraud or whatever. I had a girfriend fall for a Nigerian scam, where she sent a $1,000 money order to cover her "charges" for sending the mondy to the US. They even called her house to verify they had received the money order and her payment would be forthcoming!!As bad as the bogus Ebay scam - we need to update, please verify your address, financial info when you first signed up with Ebay in order to avoid fraudulent access to your account - and it looked so real people were falling for it!

    Even I have got the same mail.

    One point to be observed is the senders email address.

    He is sending yahoo winners mail with user id of hotmail.

    why yahoo people will send a mail from hotmail?
