    Sweepstakes Winner or scam?

    xtyronex48

      Hey all. I entered the recent Intel i7-8086k anniversary giveaway, thinkinh I wouldn't win but I entered anyway because it wouldn't cost me anything to at least try;however, a few days ago I got an email saying im a potential winner. I clicked the link in the email so fast and entered the necessary shipping details. I usually wouldn't even open emails without being sure they were real and especially not links. I want to know if this was legit or a scam.Here's the screenshot.
