I received information from a friend who said on your website (Bestbuy.com) there was a link that took you to a page to enter your email address and when he did so he received an email that said to print out the voucher sent to him and receive a $1000 gift card which he did and took it to his local store. There they scanned it and it gave him the card. Is there any truth to this? It seems very far fetched.

The text isn't from Best Buy. It's a scam. If it was from Best Buy it'd be at the URL "www.bestbuy.com/". As you can see from the URL you pasted, the Top LEvel Domain is "youre-a-winner.net", not "bestbuy.com".

Hi phillip63 and welcome to the forum.
It's a known scam. Do not go to the site, or give them any information. It's one of those cases of, "If it sound's too good to be true..."
