    This is a SCAM. Check out the below link for confirmation of various email scams hitting the internet and how to report them :

    http://www.consumerfraudreporting.org/lotteryscam_...

    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.

    the below information is for yahoo mail

    but the steps may be close for other providers

    Blocking A Sender Using The All New Mail

    ( clicking the spam button only REPORTS the spam to yahoo but does not block emails from that email address )

    click the spam button to report the spam

    to block the sender manually

    on the top right side of mail page

    click options

    then mail options

    click contact options

    on the left click mail

    then click general preferences

    then block addresses

    type in the email address

    click add block

    if you are getting alot of spam from a certain domain

    you will see block domains to

    this will be after the @ sign in the email

    example @yahoo.com

    yahoo.com is the domain

    be carefull of the domains you block

    obviously you dont want to block yahoo.com

    that would stop all email from people with yahoo email addesses

    Blocking A Sender Using Yahoo Classic

    click the spam button

    to add addresses manually to blocked senders list

    on top right side of mail page

    choose options

    then choose block addresses

    type in the email address

    if you are getting alot of spam from a certain domain

    you will see block domains to

    this will be after the @ sign in the email

    example @yahoo.com

    yahoo.com is the domain

    be carefull of the domains you block

    obviously you dont want to block yahoo.com

    that would stop all email from people with yahoo email addesses

    Bulk Email

    bulk email is when the same email is sent to alot of people by just sending one email

    an easy way to spam alot of people in just a few clicks of the mouse

    Bulk Email Settings For The all New Mail

    click options on top right side of mail page

    then click mail options

    then click spam
