    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. If that involves money for insurance or fees, don't give them not one cent of it. 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.

    It's a scam. You can't win a lottery you haven't entered and bought a ticket for. You'd be asked to pay fees and taxes before you can receive the imaginary prize. Sometimes you'd be sent a fake check and asked to pay the "taxes" back to the scammer by Western Union before you find out that the check was fake.

    That message is the two a pretend and an outright fraud. do not provide the phishers any of your guy or woman counsel in any respect. unsolicited mail that rip-off message straight away into oblivion ideal away. it relatively is one lottery you will in no way win because of the fact this is "bogus." yet another element, the phishers telling you to "shop this lottery counsel private" might point out to you to not say something approximately this to each physique till they have complete scamming you.

    I'd guess it's a scam; but check back with Yahoo themselves. Not many people win competitions that they never entered.
