You might want to look at the full headers to the email to verify that the email came from Sony. If it is legit, then definitely a huge congratulations on the win (and don't forget to pay taxes on it).

The first thing you should do is contact Mass Media directly through their website (not by resppnding to this email) to verify.
If you are indeed the winner, congratulations! (Can you give me a couple hundred?)

Don't know...  If it's not a Sony E-mail don't send back.  All someone needs is your date of birth and E-mail to get into your account.  If this is Sony they should already have all this info that they are asking from you.

Just like others have said, first make sure that email is REAL. And if it is real and you get the money, don't spend all the money in one place. Congrats. Smiley Very Happy

A call was made to Sony and they knew of no such reward. The advice was to visit the forum. Since we are warned not to give out such account info, and given that Sony already has it, I took their advice and posted.

Happy New Year, everybody. Stay Safe! Smiley Happy
