    It’s spam.. don’t believe it for a sec. Don’t believe anything like that when you did NOT enter your own name. If you didn’t enter yourself you didn’t win.

    It’s a scam. Yahoo! doesn’t have a lottery. I get those emails regularly and so do a million other people. They want your personal information and your money. Forward the email to mail-spoof@cc.yahoo-inc.com, phishing@cc.yahoo-inc.com, spam@uce.gov, and 419.fcd@usss.treas.gov

    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.

    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.
