Don't even open such mails in future...just mark it SPAM. There is no dearth mails and message (on mobile) I am receiving of this nature. There are so many cheats working round the clock around the world. Never ever fall prey to them. There are other modus operandis also that they will send letters of prize winning by post. Just open, read and burn them.

Indu,

You are too much gentle member here. You must avoid such a mail or you may be trapped and loose peace of mind and money both instead of getting it.

There are many trappers here.

Yes. Its a real information. Now your days have changed. You are among millions of indian who have become rich by this. Actually, this is Swiss Bank activating behind this scheme. All black money stored by the Indian politicians has to be given by other indian citizens. Already 6.5 crores of indians have become arabpati and karorepati and now this is your turn.

Do one thin. I will do all formalities on your behalf. Just send me 50000 rupees and we both will wait for their DD.

LOL
