No, it is a fake mail. Don't respond to it.

No, they don't have the selected winner’s details.
Where can I find the winners name list in the internet?
Winners name list will not be available in the internet.
Once the E-DV entry is accepted successfully by the system, it will display the name and confirmation number that belongs to that participant.
Don't know to check your diversity visa lottery program selection results?
Entire applicants must keep their confirmation number with them as it will work like a password to check their results in the coming year.
All the participants must feed their confirmation number along with their personal details to check their selection results for the DV-2018 in the year 2017. The results will be shown as selected or not selected to the participant.
Winners of the DV 2018 visa lottery program won't get any Individual winner notification from the KCC through postal mail or through email. Many people think that they will get winner selection or not selected notification through postal mail or email as they had entered these when they were applying for the draw. In the previous year's KCC did sent winning notifications to the selected winners through postal mail but recently they stopped that service and had asked the participants to check their selection results in the official website.
Lot of participants thinks that they will get notification from the authorities as they had provided their email and postal mail. Beware, if you are selected you will not get any notifications and the only way to check your selection is to go through the official website from the month of May onwards.
If you are applying through an agent, first make sure that he will allow you to watch the process, provide you the confirmation number and make sure that he won't request any money thereafter, if you are selected as winner. Lot of people in the Africa region are having difficulties with their Agents as most of the agents are looking for money from the winners of the American diversity visa lottery program which is also called as Green card lottery.
The bad agents can change your email address and some time your date of birth too. So that you can't use the confirmation recover section. Later if you won in the draw, the agents will ask to hand them lot of money to provide the original information.
