    I posted a question about this too! I answered the email (don't worry, I didn't enter any information) as a joke and the guy instant messaged me! Unfortunately these things are a scam. Wouldn't it be great to win all that money!

    Thats an scam,

    one quick way to determine is by the email address (something@bellsouth.net)is obviously another king of spam but in this case fraud, dont trust this kind of emails, money doesnt fall from the sky and certainly not from a random lottery unknown to you

    It's spam. Never give out your personal details. And whatever you do DON'T ever give anyone your bank details, that's the one thing they are after. One of these emails told me to open a new bank account to stop me from losing my funds...what a load of crap.
