This is fraud because i have searched it in google and found that there is no such lottery and that this type of fraud/scam is being done since last many years and lottery winners are asked to pay money for various reasons like tax, courier charges, bank charges etc etc before paying the winning prize, which is never done.

so all people please be careful and never give ur personal information specially bank account to these fake emails.
