Fake emails claiming to be from ESPN - Be aware

An hour ago i received an email address claiming to be from the ESPN Office, from this email id reginak@research.haifa.ac.il , which the moment i saw knew was a fake. The email had no body and had an attachment a file called ESPN.docx. I opened the document using google docs and saw a 3 page document, I will list out a few parts from the email,

DEAR EMAIL OWNER,
THIS E-MAIL IS TO OFFICIALLY INFORM YOU THAT YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND PRONOUNCED AS THE LUCKY WINNER OF £1,000,000.00 GBP, IN THE 2012 AWARD BY (ESPN STAR CRICKET DRAW PROMOTION UK) WISHES TO CONGRATULATE YOU OVER YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS SUCCESS IN THIS FINANCIAL BAILOUT PLAN. YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS EMERGED AS ONE OF THE TEN FINAL RECIPIENTS OF A CASH GRANT.
and later on they ask you everything from your name, to your email and your password. So we confirmed it was a fake and then we went on to the ESPN Cricinfo website and went to the feed back page, and i saw what they had written there,

PLEASE NOTE: If you have recently received an e-mail from a party claiming to be ESPN Cricket or ESPN Star Cricket, these e-mails are fraudulent messages and should be deleted.

So i wrote in to ESPN and told them about it and offered to forward the email if they wanted me to. So friends, if you ever receive such an email, be sure it is a fake and NEVER reveal your personal information or password to such people.
