I am 99.99999999999999999999 x10^1x10^9999% sure that this is a scam . These sorts of messages are heard about all too often, the best thing to do with them is to not open them at all - and delete them straight away if they've managed to bypass your junk filter.

Hi cellophane,I could not resist myself from commenting on your response.It was too funny and also useful at the same time.That 99.99999999999999999999 x10^1x10^9999% thing went well with the discussion topic I must say.

Everyday I used to get such mails to my in box now and I will not even read them once if I see the content. They will ask our address ,Phone numbers and some other information. Never give such info to them and also don't respond them in any way. How will we won such amount without doing anything. But they are continuing their cheat and they will be asking us to pay some initial amount to release the prize amount. If we send them, some of them will continue to ask for money for various reasons so that we can believe.Just delete such emails and don't try to even open them.

these emails are often nigerian based cons. this could be very dangerous, as many of them are trying to scam you into giving up your bank account information. next thing you know, you bank account, credit card or whatever will be canceled with out you even knowing it. this kind of thing was on one of those shows...night line or whatever.

I simply delete all emails like this, I don't even open them if I don't know the sender. These emails prey on trusting people. Delete it, forget it and move on
