    This is a SCAM. You haven't won anything. Check out the below link for confirmation of various scams, including the famous Yahoo/MSN lottery scams and how to report them.

    Change your email password, if you've given it out too. And, I'm sorry to say, you may be recieving a lot more of these kinds of phishing emails. Never give out any personal details to someone you are not SURE you know.

    Even if the email seems to come from a bank, go to the main site through typing in the http YOU know leads you to the real site, not by clicking through the email. That usually leads to a spoofed page that only looks real.

    You may also recieve a lot of junk mail. Keep your eyes open and if you do feel in danger for some reason, report it to the authorities.

    If that is all you gave out, it looks like it is info that could otherwise have been obtained from public sources anyway. It is unlikely to create any problem. However, it is NEVER smart to give personal information to anyone by email. Even your lawyer would not want you to provide confidential info by email.

    As for the lottery scam, how could you possibly win a lottery that YOU yourself didn't enter, either by buying a lottery ticket or by filling in an entry form??? Never open emails from people you don't know. NEVER.
