Hi there and welcome

It is a scam, a very common one, please do not reply to it or open any attachments in the email, but delete it to avoid your computer becoming infected.

No company will every award you any prizes in this manner.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
