This is a scam If you are really the winner of a prize, you will not be required to pay any fee --- this is an advance fee fraud scheme. If you send the money, chances are they will ask again for even more money if you choose the car (to pay "taxes" etc) or if you choose the cash option they will obtain information on your bank account and quite possibly wipe it out. Do not send any money --- this is a scam. Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate positive so that I may receive credit for assisting you today.
