    It’s a scam thousands of these deceptive emails are sent every day there used to commit identity theft, or try to get you to send money. DO NOT send any bank/personal details click the link below to see what yahoo say about this.

    You can report this with the mail abuse form below.

    That message is both a fake and an outright fraud. Don't contact the phishers and give them any of your personal information at all. Spam that scam message straight into oblivion right away. This is one lottery you'll never win because it's "bogus."

    Another thing, the phishers telling you to "keep this lottery information confidential" would indicate to you not to say anything about this to anybody until they have finished scamming you.
