Beware of the "Yahoo/MSN National Lottery" Scam from "Winning Payment Notification Team"

The "Yahoo/MSN National Lottery" email message below is a scam designed to trick the recipients into sending their personal information and money, by claiming that they are winners of the Yahoo/MSN National lottery. But, this email message was not sent by Yahoo or MSN and is a lottery scam. There is no Yahoo/MSN National lottery, and Yahoo or MSN will never ask their users to send their personal information via an email message.

This type of lottery scam will ask you to send your personal information and subsequently ask you to send money in order to receive your prize. But, please do not respond to the email message or follow the instructions in it. Yahoo or MSN is not taking part in or endorsing any lottery games, so if you receive an email claiming that you have won some lottery prize endorsed by Yahoo or MSN, it is a scam.
