One simple rule: You should NEVER have to pay one single cent for anything you have won or that is advertised as free. If anyone says you have won something or says it is free, and you have to pay even one cent, then there is a 100% chance it is a scam.

While we are on the subject of scams, the second rule is: Treat ALL unsolicited emails and phone calls as scams.

I agree!!!

    Have you tried blocking them without opening the emails?  Many viruses jump onto those e-mails!

    One thing to help a little... Be sure to turn off the "remote images" in your browser.  That can automatically confirm to the sender that your email address is valid and that you opened the message.
