  1. Those would be scams. You don’t reply to them at all. By giving them the information they request, you set yourself up for identity theft, which will probably result in the loss of your life savings. You mark them as spam and forget about them. If it sounds too good to be true, it’s probably a scam. You should also use common sense. For example, if you didn’t play the lottery in S. Africa, you couldn’t have won it. Don’t reply to any more of those emails, just mark them as spam.


  2. ……..

    Even a moderate rich man will appear poor for these offers. Plz don’t accept them. Just ignore such offers.

    ………..



  3. Here are two very good almost perfect answers:
    1) Delete them, they are not real, it is a scam to get your personal information and/or money.
    2) Do not even open them, especially if you do not know who sent them to you! The more you open them, the more spam they will send you.



  4. I urge all who receive scam-mail to report the return address that the scammer is using so it will be disabled. Ignore it, just delete it, and you leave the problem for others. Check out the previous Questions with similar issues.

    My previous Answers will indicate how to do this. Several other Answers are also full of info on how to check the validity of offers and websites.

  5. You don’t answer, you don’t respond, and above all, you don’t give these people personal information: name, address, banking information, credit cards, etc. This is spam. There is NO lottery. There is NO free money. This is crap. This is a hoax. This has been going on for years and you are just now getting these? STOP OPENING SPAM!
