Answer

If you have to ask, you already know the answer.  Do you really think that a multinational corporation would run any kind of contest or lottery on the basis of spammed, cold emails; contacting folks at random and advising them they've won a lottery or prize in a contest they never entered, and that they would then require you to follow up with a courier to make delivery arrangements (and of course extort pre-payment of taxes or shipping fees or whatever) ... really?

It's a shame you replied because now they have your email and think you are a good prospect to be scammed, and they will likely hound you until your death trying to get the money they intended to extort from you. Good luck!
