I have e-mail apparently from Yahoo Internet Lottery saying

Resolved Question:

I have e-mail apparently from "Yahoo Internet Lottery" saying I have won GBP280000. I couldn't find contact address on Yahoo home page .
They claim lottery is organised with MSN and AOL. This sounds too good to be true.

It is. it is a scam. Ask yourself...did you enter this lottery? Do you have your ticket? Does the number match?

Unless you can answer yes to all three, RUN AWAY...it is a scam. Not to mention the fact LOTTERIES NEVER EMAIL WINNERS with results.
