Hey, Yea that is kinda funny, just try and ignore the emails as best as you can. Don't believe them, just ignore them. This has happened so many times with my friends, but none of them actually believed them. Make sure you have a good day, Happy Lotting!!

Its not only in yahoo, but every online there are such frauds are going on. These are commonly known as Nigerian fraud. You know recently a customs official was cheated for $20000 but he till refuse to believe that he was cheated & believes that his money is coming. Happy Lotting

So many of them. We have to be watchful because most if not all of them originate from scammers who pose themselves as legitimate representatives of the organizations conducting online lotteries. You should ask why are you winning a lotto when you have not entered one before? It's advisable not to open such message because some of them have hidden attachment which eventually steal your information or install malicious software upon opening your email. You will find most of these messages in the Junk or Spam folder if you are using good anti-spam filters like in outlook express. Never give out your personal information to such scams.
