    Well, Rodhar, did you enter that lottery, you know buy a ticket????? No??? You can not win something you did not enter or play. Besides Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, Microsoft, MSN and Aol do not have lotteries, reward programs, promotions, or contests.

    When an E-mail offer sounds too good to be true, then it is definitely not true.

    It is a scam to get your personal information and/or your money, or both!

    Do not respond to it.

    Report it, forward it to the FTC at spam@uce.gov and to the abuse desk of the sender's ISP.

    For yahoo, report them here: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ya…

    Choose Fraud as the reason for the violation you're reporting on.

    Also, if the E-mail appears to be impersonating a bank or other company or organization, forward the message to the actual organization.

    Scam!!!!! 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.
