    NO, Yahoo! has not any such lottery or any other monetary prizes and that is a SPAM! SCAM! or 'phishing mail'

    If you received an email impersonating Yahoo! and would like to report it please forward the email to:

    mail-spoof@cc.yahoo-inc.com. If you have already been tricked into giving your password, please visit

    http://security.yahoo.com/article.html?a...

    and follow the instructions there. Also:

    http://www.consumerfraudreporting.org/lo...

    upgrade your Yahoo! mail to Yahoo! Mail plus..it has better spam and scam protection capability,

    Or down load and install McAfee anti-spam-phishing mail filter in your pc but it can cost you some dollars

    Or forward that scam to http://abuse.com/yahoomail.com/yahoo.com... with your complain headline and the link of that mail, if that scammer use Yahoo! ID for spamming or commercial publicity advertisement,then that Yahoo! id will be canceled by Yahoo!Customer Care.

    This is a Nigerian phishing scam. They are trying to get your bank account info to straight ram you out or to get you to cash bogus checks for them.

    Notice the phone number.. if it is a U.K. company, why does the phone number go to Nigeria? (234)

    NO!!!! Never give out information to unsolicited emails either. This is a scam. Everyone gets them .... not everyone could win could they? Report it as the other person said....

    No. They just want your bank account info, so they can take all your money.
