    Not me.
    Perhaps hover over sender's email to see if it matches? Or you could reply and explain why you're reluctant to open it and ask for further details...?

    Just got another reply from them :-


    This is to confirm the receipt of your mail

    It may interest you to know that your full name was found among the beneficiary payment list from LinkedIn Team Award 2016.

    All the necessary documents regarding your award will be send to you as soon as the approved paying bank Federal Reserve Bank released your award winning of US$850,000.00 through ATM GOLD CARD and not wired transfer for security reasons. However you should kindly reconfirm below information for your claims:

    Your full Names:
    Contact Address:
    Mobile Contact number:
    Occupation:
    Winning Reference:



    I don't think I will be following this up.
