    Need help from a mod. I think I got an E-mail that's spam saying I won an M1


      I recently played the "Experience the Madness" sweepstakes" and I got an E-mail a few weeks ago saying I didn't win the grand prize. Today, however I got an E-mail saying I won a Slingbox M1, but I don't know if it  is legit. This is what the E-mail I got today said:


      "Hello and congratulations! You have won a Slingbox M1 for entering the Sling Media’s Madness Cubed Sweepstakes*! The M1 lets you catch all your live shows and sports, while you’re away from your home, so you never miss a thing!

      Is this legit or is it a scam?

      Here's the E-mail I got a few weeks ago:

      "Dear (my name),
