It smell a scam straightaway even if you have a blocked nose. Be careful about what you received by email. Chances is that 1 in a 100 will fall prey to these scammers.

It is a scam, report the spam to yahoo by selecting the email and pushing the spam button. Or you can forward the message with the full header to abuse@yahoo.com have a nice day Pablo

That is a rip-off. You will win nothing. It is spam. If they get 100 people to send $8.75, they will make $875.00 and you will get nothing. Don't believe anything where you have to pay before you win. Tell them to send the $500 first and then you will send $8.75. See what happens then. Nothing, that's what.
