The email message below: "Your gmail address has just won you 500,000 USD and APPLE LAPTOP for this month of 2014 Lottery promotion which is organized by GMAIL & MICROSOFT OUTLOOK LOTTERY INC & WINDOWS 8 LIVE," is fraudulent and you should not respond to it with your personal information. Also, there is no Gmail, Google, Hotmail, Live.com, Windows Live, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft, Windows 8 or Android lottery.
