USCIS (US Citizenship and Immigration Services) Email Scam...

Today, I received an email from someone who uses the USCIS (US Citizenship and Immigration Services) as their affiliate. This someone identifies himself as someone from the Visa Organization Lottery Program that conducts U.S. Green Card e-mail (ballot) lottery program this year 2011.
The email notified me that I was one of the 575 lucky winners who will receive a US Green Card. This Green Card was said to be a visa type that permits me to travel with my family. And this visa has 10 years duration of multiple entry to the U.S. It is said to renewable upon expiration and permits me to work, study and own properties in the US.

You know what will I feel if this is really true? WOW! I'd be so happy in my entire life having this kind of visa in my hands. But this email is not true, not genuine (FAKE!). It's a scam and it really waste your valuable time reading this kind of emails. There are lots of email spreading in the internet and you might receive some of them. It's very easy to identify such kind of emails. "It's too-good-to-be true email".

You might be curious what's the content of the email. And it might be helpful to know this kind of email in order not to be deceived. Below is the full message of the email I received:
