    This is a SCAM. If you click on the below link this site confirms various email scams hitting the internet and provides an online form for the reporting of such, with links for your own country.

    Yahoo has also sued fake companies using the Yahoo name informing unsuspecting people of their "Yahoo lottery win".

    Unscrupulous thieves have sent you this email and they are trying to part you from your hard earned cash. They will often ask you to call a premium rate number and keep you holding on whilst you rack up a huge phone bill. They are then paid a large proportion of this phone bill. They may ask you to divulge personal information about yourself or ask for your bank or credit card details. Do not divulge any such information under any circumstances. It is surprising how many innocent victims have been duped by these types of emails. Please remember the thieves who send them are very clever and extremely convincing. I suggest you delete the email and send it into cyberspace.

    There is NO such thing as Yahoo Lottery http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/ab... - tells how to report this

    If Yahoo gave away a million pounds, don't you think it would be the lead story on the Yahoo homepage???

    NO it is just a scam. Same as if you get these stupid emails from overseas giving you a hundred different stories about inherited money or some nigerian wanting to pay you for helping him/her out. It is all a scam.

    2. No one in the world will give you any money whithout you investing some money with him..

    I think it could be a scam. I would email someone in charge of Yahoo and see if they agree. Be Careful!!!!!!
