Good day!

Is this legitimate? I received an e-mail with contents below:

 

--Your prize is £ 1,500,000.00 (One Million Five Hundred Thousand Great Britain Pounds) in cash and has been credited to file MTF / 13700119 fourteenths. A total cash prize of £ 50,000.000.00 (Fifty Million Great Britain pounds) was among the 10 lucky shared. Across the globe winners in different categories.

Hi @Arjay123.

 

Welcome to the community.

 

I'd recommend not tapping any links within this message, and please forward it on to 7726 so it can be investigated further.
