Dear would you like to tell from whom you received the mail and what instructions were there to be followed. I have just started my discussion right below this one, facing the same and want to know all of the misery happened to you for others to be careful.

Yes, I believe you are absolutely correct on this matter, read too many and filled out unneccessary survey's for nothing, they just want your credit card number and buy something. No laptops, no shopping sprees, no gift cards, gas, or gift certificates it's all a scam, just like ABOUT everything else of. Learn and earn is what my motto is. And anything that sounds to good to be true is to good to be true.

This is horrible! I was right for not trusting those spam e-mails on the bulk folder of my e-mail. There are lots of scam strategy today lurking in the net. Some of the most reported scams are those e-mails about lottery and special offers. You should not trust them fully for there is no one whom I know who have been paid from this programs. Instead, you will lose something from expecting you can gain something from them.

What are the instructions? Did they ask you for your e-gold account? And then asked you to even key in your password? How much did you lose from your e-gold account? I've heard about this one too, but never received the email myself (hope i won't).

I have been receiving that piece of crap on a regular basis over the last couple of months so once I decided to check it out. I thought, why not check it out, if they are giving away $500. But when they asked for $8 for registering for some game, I realized that it was a scam. You should be more careful with your money, my friend.

I've ever received a mail I won 1000000 £ and have to follow the instructions,I have followed the instructions untill I have to pay some money for the expences,that's ridiculous you should trapped in this sort of scam,when you have really won 1000000 £ and there were expences they must take it from the winning money and not asking you to pay. They can keep their 1000000 £ !

yeah, i've received a lot of emails like that, and i just knew they had to be a scam because they required some form of payment. so now, whenever i receive emails of the sort, i just simply ignore them.

This is what you call the spam email, this is not originally from yahoo, some people or group of scammers sends this randomly to available accounts. So maybe you manage your settings and change it. If you receive similar email like this one just ignore it, and mark it as spam. I always receive this kind of emails, i just send it to trash immediately. cheers=)

I always take precautions against such mails and never pay money to any of them in advance, without getting the required work done.
