I also got some mails such like and first was delighted and gave my information and bank account (of course local savings account). I did not get any response since then when I gave my particulars, rather I am getting huge offers and junk mail in my yahoo mail box after that. But all I delete as I understood all are scam and selling my email address ofcourse did not able to take money from my account as it is local savings account. God saved me!

This is a new take on the Nigerian scam. If you did not enter a lottery you cannot win. Report the e-mail to your internet provider. Do not answer it and give out any personal information. What will happen is the following: 1. Either they will ask you for your personal and banking information and then drain your bank account, or 2. They will tell you before they can send you the money you must wire them a sum of money to pay for taxes and legal cost to transfer the money to you. If you send them money you will never hear from them again and you will have been scammed.
