Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. That is a scam; please delete that email message. Hackers sent fake email messages in order to get your personal information in order to do fraud. Also, you would never win anything if you have not even entered the contest yourself. You should always ignore any email message that you do not know or that you are not expecting.

Do you have any further question?

Please reply at the box below. thank you.
