You can see in the sample email as above asking you to submit your personal details. However, don't do anything. If you send them your personal details, they will sell that to the third parties and make money from that and later will contact you asking you to send some money to pay the clearing and registration charges. If you send them money, they will just vanish by taking your money.
You should never believe any kind of message claiming to give you a big amount of money in some lucky draw unless you have purchased some lucky draw ticket. On top of that, if some lucky draw message asks you to send some fees in the name of some clearing or registration charges, then that message is 100% scam because the real lottery program will never ask you to send the fees, instead, they will cut all necessary fees from your winning amount.
So, this kind of message is a scam, or a fraudulent attempt by cybercriminals to trick you into sending them money.
