    this is a scam, this is a scam! I get these several times a week sometimes I have fun telling them ive sent the claim fee and get them all excited. None of these ever turn out to be honest, so just either delete them or have a laugh pranking them!

    Dont ever trust anyone who wants so much personal information. Do not give your bank details, it is most probably a con, I had a few myself and ignored them. If you are not convinced, e-mail the sender and ask them to send you a cheque, bet you dont get a response. Think about identity theft and the trouble it can cause before you give ANYONE too much personal information!

    It's a scam, don't give out any of your details. Yahoo! don't do lotteries.

    All of these spoof emails are "phising" for information from you and are often fraudulent.

    It's a scam.

    They want you to pay 'fees' to release your funds...

    Also, they want all your personal details so they can access your bank account, and get loans in your name.
