    All such mails are spam. Remember that unless you have actually entered such contests, no one would ever give you a prize.

    it's spam. nuke the mail. i used to get 10 mails daily. approximate earnings would have been around 75 to 80 million bucks per day ;-). I would have been beaten bill gates to top spot if i really got that money.

    Offcourse spam dude. These bloody spammers even bombard similar SMS to recipients who never applied for any contest. The sad thing is our numbers are sold off by our provider to other firms who in turn market their products & try to get some exposure. Never ever fall for such a mail or SMS.

    Warren Buffet is the richest now AFAIK. I guess he replied to these messages and actually won something. ;)

    If it is indeed a guy that is. I suppose spambots aren't really programmed to send money, are they?

    If you will Proceed Further According to the Address/Phone No. given in the FAKE Mail, They will Demand to Transfer Money to their Account as Processing Charges. Finally you won't get single penny..

    ^Yeah, why should you pay if you have won. They should simply subtract any money charged from the prize money. But fake lame fraudsters that they are, will loot us anyway. :x

    I Agree, its SPAM, which try to TRAP People who do not know much about Internet or these kind of stuffs, And Yeah They Ask for Money, Here is little Story

    One of my Friend also got a Similar mail, He taken that mail Seriously and he proceeded further and he sent the Details which was needed in the mail. he also got reply of that.After Several Emails. Finally he got a Call from Outside the country, there was a Man who asked for Money for Processing Fee.....

    Thats it.
