How did I know this was a scam without even reading the subject line? Because the subject was written entirely in capital letters – a giveaway that this is a scam. As I said time after time on this blog, no organisation anywhere ever holds random email draws. They are all scams. You cannot win a lottery/draw or award that you have not entered.
This is a scammer who wants to take your money by charging you fees. Ignore him or her. The scammer seems to have been stupid enough to use their real email address to send this – and is either a student or member of staff at the Sorbonne.
CONGRATULATIONS! CONGRATULATIONS!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
