SCAM! They want your personal information, and if you look closely the website link is not even Yahoo's. It's a imitation website looking like Yahoo.

I have never heard of a Yahoo giveaway, with the exception of the imfamous "Yahoo Lottery", which is a total scam. The emails SEEM to come from Yahoo, but the login is on a spoofed page, so all you do is give spammers a new email address. I would check this out closely before you respond to it. I have heard of many people losing access to their Yahoo Mail because the spammer went in and changed the password and security question.

I would want more info on it, I have never heard of this, but it does sound like a scam to me. Does it ask for information, such as a place to deposit money, an address, any personal information. Contact Yahoo. But not sure if that is actually possible. Please be careful, you don't need to get taken to the cleaners.
