    100% SCAM. Yahoo doesn't have lotteries or cash giveaways. If they did, you can be sure there would be a LOT of advertising for it all over their web sites. Just delete that email, and any others like it that you are likely to get. DON'T click any links in it, and certainly DON'T reply to it.

    I do agree with the top contributor. Do not bother to open any kind of spam or bulk e-mail. It's all fraud or junk. Just delete them.
