Beware of Scam Email

I have received an email from the "Petroliam National Berhad (Petronas)" about a week ago. The content of the email is that I am one of the 25 lucky winners from the worldwide to be selected randomly via the email addresses. I am the lucky winner who have won USD2,5000,000. The winning information also available, ie. ticket no., winning no., raffle draw no., security and reference no.

I have doubt about such email thus, I sent an email to the Sin Chew Daily paper to inform about this matter and requested them to highlight in the paper to alert people if it is a scam case. I also did not replty to such email. The media checked the matter with the Petronas company and found out that it is a scam case. Thus, the matter has published on today's Sin Chew Daily Paper in the Metro Edition column.

As a conclusion, I would like to highlight to all of you, if you have received such email, just delete it and do not do anything as per instruction of the email as it is a scam email. If you reply to the email, you may be cheated. Thus, beware of the scam emails.

FYI, below is the scam email.
