BlackBerry Trickery

I've gotten fake lottery e-mails from Nigeria, Microsoft and a myriad of other tech companies. Now the BlackBerry Lottery organization tells me I won $300,000 (this is far less than the Nigerians always offered). All I have to do is give the London-based outfit all my contact info and then get in touch with one of their agents.

What's your advice? Should I go for it? Answers welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
