    No, But I like how the header image says "Google" with Beta underneath. Otherwise known as a screen capture of google.com.

    and "...Selected your email id as one it is 20 chosen fortunate winner..." That's some great english right there.

    My favorite part is that the "Centre" in the United States is dealing with these awards. "Centre" is used numerous times. Except we don't spell it that way in the US, it's "Center". That right there should let you know this is fishy. Well, besides the entire rest of it obviously being fake.
