i recently received an email from yahoo!mail saying I won 500usd which will be given to me through my e-gold account. But to get that, I would need to subscribe to something first and it will cost me 8.25USD. How am I able to subscribe if I have just created my e-gold account and it doesn't have any deposit in it yet?! sigh......... does anyone else received a similar email? do you really need to pay first before you can claim your prize? :-(

It sounds like a scam to me. Anything that asks you for money like that is more often than not out to rip you off. As the person above said - anything that sounds too good to be true usually is. And in a case like this were I'm assuming you didn't even actively participate in anything for the chance to win is even more likely to be a scam. Just delete it and move on :-)

I hate to tell you. But it probably is a scam. I wouldn't do it. Remember if it sounds like it is to good to be true. Than it really is to good to be true.
