I also got same email and it is clear scam as you can see we are member of www.donkeymails.com and in email link it shows some donkeyemail-prize.com which is non existing domain name. second important think is that why they will disturbute $ 400 to member when they are sending email links worth few sends. they must have distributed money among members so that everyone must be happy. anyway i have deleted email and forget about it as one of the scam email.

What you should do is go to the site and see if it has been put in whatever site you use there. The site should have a notice on the front page of the site about it. And it would be in your paypal or whatever. If it is true, Congratulations!

i've received such kind of emails before.but i just delete it immediately.i know i won't get a lot of money by doing nothing.i dont believe it at all. i guess they send these kind of emails to groups of people,coz last time you said you received an email from yahoo,which said you earn something,i received it too.that is a problem.so now i even dont waste my minute to finish that kind of letter.
