How to check whether the email you received is Real OR Fake ?

Hello friends, today I am sharing a very useful trick to check whether the Email you received is REAL or FAKE. I think many of you had received a mail which offering you a lottery or Job from the names like William George etc... but these are fake mail to attract the victim to transfer some money to the senders A/C ..

 when I was at class 8th I got the email from William George offering me a lottery of $10million , after reading that I am on top of the world imagining myself in sports car :P and have a huge bungalow :P
but after consulting from my uncle I get shocked :( that the email I got is fake.. 
but any ways thanks to fake mailer William , because of him I have a interest in Cyber world from class 8 and from 9th class onward I able to send the fake mails to any one :P
