    1. I think, they want to collect your personal information to convince that you have won the prize. Later, they may ask you to deposit money in their account for the processing fee or something else. I you deposited then they will discontinue the communication. Their aim is only that they want to collect money from people somehow. They will not give you any cash prize. There are so many people who got cheated with this kind of mails/sms.

    1. If you use Linux OS, there won't be any security issue. Post the contents (in gg.doc) here. Somebody may also have got the same doc, so posting it may help them.
