I received an e-mail from a person with the address from yakimaschools.org and they said Allen and Violet Large wanted to give me 2 million?

They won the lottery for 11.2 dollars- the story is legit but are they trying to scam me? They asked me to send an e-mail to them for more info...

Number one rule in life... if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. If you have never met these people, never entered into any contest specifically for this prize, and really have no clue how they got your contact info in the first place, then it's likely a scam. Definitely don't send them any personal info, and especially don't send any sort of "processing fee".

Please don't bite the hook..It is a scam. You don't inherited anything via email, but you can get badly taken in by great sounding emails..Remember also, if you are ever asked to send money first for anything you did not request..if it by regular snail or email..SCAM Please listen to those here.You asked, we answered.. It is your choice..Make good choices:) All the best.

There is ZERO chance that this email is legitimate. Please don't make the mistake of ignoring the sound advice you've been given on here by emailing the scammers back. Best rule of thumb: don't even open emails from people you don't know, but if you feel you must, don't click on any links within the email, send personal information like passwords or credit card numbers, etc. There is not even one single legitimate company or organization today that will ask you for that type of information through email, because email is NOT secure. Good call to ask for advice on here before acting! :)
