    no this is a scam,do not send any personal details or money to the sender of the email,yahoo,msn etc has nothing to do with this

    because a lottery you have to buy a ticket and then see if your numbers are the winning ones,but if you just get an unsolicited email that you were not expecting then you can tell its a scam because you did not enter in the first place

    delete the email and block the email address of the sender of this unsolicited email

    nothing in this world is free without a scam or a catch somewhere in there

    remember if something sounds to good to be true then it usually is

    yahoo has no way to win money so you can tell that they are lying about that bit

    This mail is a scam mail.Don't get fooled my friend these mails are simply scam mails asking you to contact them with you rpersonal data like name, age,sex, bank account number and sometimes password. Later they rip you of your money and the lottery amount - you will not have single dime left with you.

    Take my advice - Help in Fighting spam. Simply report spam for such e-mails and let us prevent such internet scams. Let ud keep the Internet Clean and good.

    If you didnt enter it then no...in fact if you stick with the policy that if you didnt ask for an email, dont open it (especially if the subject line is offering you some amazing prize) then you should be ok

    NO !! It's a scam, there is no such thing. Don't give them any personal bank information or they will rob your account. The best thing to do is to delete this thing. They are all scams and no doubt you will receive many more.

    It's just a scam. Yahoo! doesn't do lotteries.

  • No its a scam from Nigeria.

    It was on an Oprea Winfrey show

    It's scam. If you win the lottery you won't hear by email.
