These type of emails are all scams. Don't give out any of your personal information. They will not send you any money. These are all fake. All they are trying to do is get money from you.

It's all fake. They will get your mail id in some groups and sends the message like this way. But you hven't won any. Now I had 5 messages like this from different companies that I won such a big lottery. I you really want to read them, I can forward it to you. They will forgot about replying you after you have deposited the money. Please its all about scams which you can find in one of my discussions. Please don't believe them. And I am also from India.

friend, you have got only one lottery but I get many of these kind every day. They are all scams and you will find out once you give them a try. They will ultimately start asking you money most of the times. Otherwise, they will ask you for your password in some way that we cannot detect and then they try to demand money from you. So beware and don't fall in such scams. Have a good day.
