i have just found out that some people are trying to fraud people by sending emails regarding winnings of lottery.They say that you have won by an online lottery system and that you should claim the money as soon as possible. If any of you have recieved this kind of an email be careful because its all fraud.

I have received these emails and yes, I know it is fraud. Just like the Nigerian emails that come from lawyers and bankers or high officials (supposedly) that want you to help them with establishing a bank account with lots of money and they will give some of the money to you - total fraud.

Thanks for the warning. I too have received such mail, but i was careful not to believe in suh things so dint open it at all. But one mail i have received from Yahoo saying that i won 500$ but to claim it i have to join the yahoo games by paying $9. Do you think even Yahoo will resort to such things, or was it someone in their name.
