  1. Dont even open it….

  2. A lottery scam is a variant of advance fee fraud (also know as a 419 scam). First, you (and thousands of other people) get a spam message stating that you could get millions of dollars — in this case, because you won the lottery. If you believe the scammer and reply, he will charge you a fee before your winnings can get to you: this may be for having some documents notarized, or to pay the courier who’s bringing your check, or to open a bank account, or international taxes, or any number of made-up excuses.

    You can tell these are email lotteries are fake because:
    (1) You can’t win a lottery if you didn’t enter (i.e. buy a ticket)
    (2) There is no such thing as a lottery of email addresses.
    (3) There is no such thing as an “international lottery”, and in fact most countries have laws prohibiting their citizens from entering lotteries in other countries.
    (4) Yahoo! doesn’t run a lottery — see the links below for a lot more info on Yahoo Lottery scam emails…

  3. Yes – delete it without opening any attachments – otherwise you will get a virus
