They guy picked up and said yes congratulations you've won the prize and have to fill in the form and email to them. They asked me to provide them my personal details with my contact details. I sent them my full name, my full address, gender, ocupations,mobile number and home phone number. They also asked me for my date of birth but i didn't send them because i didn't believe that I had won the lottery that i haven't entered.
They sent me another mail to send them my banking details but the tone of mail was very unprofessional and then i believed that it was a spam.
