This is what we call scams and frauds, just ignore them or if possible delete them, sometimes those mails are attached with spyware or virus. You need not to open them. Just imagine, how can you win without playing or without entering the competition? Never and never, it's not possible, even hardworking people earns through troubles and sweat, so don't ever believe them. Many people fell into this trap, but many have know their intension and have escaped, but still many more are ignorant and can still believe them. Most of those mails will show up on google search, try typing in the Subject line of the mail on google and search, you'll know what others are saying about them.
You can forward your mails to the following websites and emails:
Ripoff Report
Consumer fraud reporting
spam@uce.gov
Internet Crime Complaint Center

So don't waste you time and money for them, rather do your own work and report them to the given sites, services and emails mentioned above. There are still many more where you can place complaints, etc.. etc..

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

This is most probebly a scam. Just remember you have to physically enter a lottery to win. They have got your name from your Yahoo! Mail ID.

Gud day sir my emaill recieve a lootery wining no. that came from u.k and he told to his letter that i win $250,000 doolar, my question is thats its true ??? yahoo messenger have any lottery promotion???...


Do not believe such mails. I don't know how they do this. But as far as i have read from newspapers and saw in news,it is said that people imposing as manager of banks or some other lotteries will send you mail to deposit some amount and get the lottery amount. When they get the money,they escape with it.

Excerpt from uk national lottery website:
These scams work in two ways:
Method 1: Persuade the victim to part with personal information to allow the scammers to carry out identity theft.
Method 2: Persuade the victim to part with money as an upfront payment in order to release a winning lottery prize which does not exist.

Another excerpt from Uk national lottery website:
  • If the email says 'Winning Notification' or 'Lottery Sweep Stake' in the text, the email you've received is not from The National Lottery;
  • We don't tell players how much they've won in an email;
  • We don't ask for any personal information like name, address or bank details in an email.
There is no need to contact us if you have received a lottery-related scam (fraudulent) email.

Is this a real winning or is it a scam?


Beware! Its a scam. Do NOT give out any personal information. If you do, they (the senders) will probably ask you to deposit a small fee so they can send you the prize money. After receiving your cash they will move away!
Just send this email to your spam folder.
Just for your information, I also received one of these.
Thank you.
