    OfCourse it would be a hoax. Who would give you that big money for nothing (Not even a contest or a draw..and if so, then why would a company restrain from getting publicity out of it instead of silently contacting you)?

    I receive these kinds of mail a couple of dozen times in a year, and if I would try to verify each one of them, I would do nothing but keep verifying and then I would receive more.

    Note: you providing your email id on public forums only attracts more of such mails..so beware

    Edit : This is not a official word from any company, but only my personal opinion

    Why someone would give you such a huge amount when you know that you haven't done anything good to him!!!?

    In such cases you should follow your mind, not heart.

    Finally, by providing your e-mail id in public places will increase such spam mails in future. So try avoiding giving your e-mail id in general.
