This is a typical lottery scam, announcing your (supposed) selection as the winner of a vast fortune. If you take the bait and send the requested information, you’ll discover that an advance fee is required before the money can be released. If you’re foolish enough to send the fee, the phony “lottery agent” will suddenly vanish, with your money, never to be heard from again.
