    This is a SCAM. Check out the below link for confirmation of various scams, including the famous Yahoo/MSN lottery scams and how to report them.

    http://www.hotscams.com/articles/759/1/Lottery-Sca...

    Unscrupulous thieves have sent you this email and they are trying to part you from your hard earned cash. They will often ask you to call a premium rate number and keep you holding on whilst you rack up a huge phone bill. They are then paid a large proportion of this phone bill. They may ask you to divulge personal information about yourself or ask for your bank or credit card details. Do not divulge any such information under any circumstances. It is surprising how many innocent victims have been duped by these types of emails. Just remember the thieves who send them are very clever and extremely convincing. I suggest you delete the email and send it into cyberspace, hopefully along with the thieving scumbags who send them.

    Sorry! No money for you!

    DO NOT REPLY! DO NOT SEND PERSONAL INFORMATION!

    I took this directly from the Yahoo link I listed below.

    "Is there a Yahoo! Lottery? Does Yahoo! Mail ever offer cash prizes?

    No. There is no Yahoo! Lottery, and we would never send you information about a contest you never entered.

    That’s the definition of unsolicited: you never asked for it. It showed up out of nowhere. The message probably also displays two other hallmarks of fraud emails: it appears to be official (with company logos, even links), and it demands urgent action “to claim your prize”, or something similar.

    If you’ve received a message like “Final Notification: Yahoo! Mail Winner!” or “Your Email Address Has Won $XX million”, it’s a scam..."

    There's a lot more on the site if you care to read it.

    http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/abu...

    I think I'll just cut and paste my answer on the other ga-zillion questions about the same thing.

    I might suggest that you use top level domain blocking if you are using Microsoft Outlook, This allows you to block all mail from foreign countries. 99% of this mail is either scams or junk mail. If you are using another email client I would suggest using Comodo's Email verification software, this make the other person confirm that its a real live person sending the mail, unless you allow the mail. I have found this program to be a great program.

    First of all - WHAT Microsoft promotion team? There ain't no such animal. And neither Yahoo nor Microsoft, or AOL, or even the Easter Bunny hold lotteries and give away free money to total strangers via email.

    Internet lottery scams are a huge (and illegal) business that preys on people's ignorant belief that they may have somehow won a contest they never entered.

    Google "internet lottery scams" to find out more information.

    SCAM. Delete the email and so be it.

    Plus, why would Yahoo give out their info and why do we PAY for lottery tickets to play the lottery. They arent just going to email you and say by the way, you win.

    It is a very old scam. I get these emails twice a day. If they were real, I would easily have several million dollars.
