Lottery Scam: "Google Award 2014 Promotion"

The "Google Award 2014" email message below is a scam designed to trick you into sending your personal information and money, by claiming that you are the winner of the 2014 Google Award promotion. But, this email message was not sent by Google and is a lottery scam. There is no Google lottery, and Google will never ask you to send your personal information via email message.

This type of lottery scam will ask you to send your personal information and subsequently ask you to send money in order to receive your prize. But, please do not respond to the email message or follow the instructions in it.

Google is not taking part in or endorsing any lottery games, so if you receive an email claiming that you have won some lottery prize endorsed by Google, it is a scam.

    Received one today with following message and with an attached PDF:

    "You've Won £950,000 GBP in Google Promo 2015. Check the Attached Official Reward letter for more details."

    The sender appeared to be "Google Reward" with email addres <#####@authentiques .fr>, but according to the MIME the originator was (the IP-addresses and other data is anonymized to protect any innocent actors :-):
    Received: from [NN.NN.NN.NN] (mail.mpss.su [NN.NN.NN.NN])

    I suspect that google is using gmail (or office365 at least :-P).

    So if the offer is too good to be true, then check the MIME atleast before sending your personal information.. ~

    "Dear Beneficiary,
    I was in a board meeting with the Directors of Google yesterday, and I was asked to submit the records of winners, so there cheques could be released, I could not summit your file, because it's still pending without the claim affidavit, from the British High Court.
    If I can receive your payment today, I will proceed to the Court and procure your necessary claim affidavit certificate and will forward your file to the Google management for the release and signing of your cheque.

    Considering the cost of sending charges via western union to UK as being expensive via western union, I would advice all payment from the Asian regions to be sent to my alternate office there in Thailand that would save you some money and time.

    So proceed with the western union payment of your court charges to my office there in Thailand with the below Receivers information.

    Receiver's Name: AUNCHALEE BOONJUNTHUEK
    Receiver's Address : 14th Floor Bangnathani, Building 1/28 Bangna-Trad Rd.,

    Then get back to me with the money transfer payment receipt, as payment evidence,

    They also claim to reside in Malaysia. I decided that I will attempt to gather as much information about them for the time being.

    I think that Google should send a mass e-mail to all their costumers about this; as a courtesy so that maybe this interruption can be ignored by all the wonderful people on the Web.

  • Posted: 6 months, 3 weekso ago by an anonymous user from Porirua, Wellington, New Zealand:

    Got the email from a John Flowers (jflowers@mec.cuny .edu) - I'm apparently a guaranteed winner too (yay for me!). My Foreign contact is the Google Award claims Manager by the name of Mr. Kennedy Watson. I had seen Mr Watson's name in another scam so realised immediately this was one too.

    My question is - we know that Mr Watson must be one of the real scammers, but could the person the email comes from be just as much a victim as the "lottery winner"? I have received emails from my own email address trying to sell ME things. It is obvious that these people know how to take someone's email address, add a number to it, then send out these terrible emails to everyone else so they can take the fall. I have absolutely no idea how to find out who is doing this or how to stop them, but it also terrifies me that one day I'll have the law on my doorstep because of it..... Has anyone else had this problem??? Help!! ~

    Good Day to You,

    see below is this a scam?? if so I added the e-mail address at the bottom for the guy that is scamming me if this is a scam; many thanks for your time.

    Sequel to our phone conversation. You are free to come over to United Kingdom when ever you wish to come. But I think it will be waste of your funds because you will still be required to make the payment through western Union and present the scanned copy of deposits as our company do not accept cash.

    We will proceed with shipment of parcel to your address once that is done as that was the agreement our management signed with Google. The parcel will not be given to you at hand to avoid impersonation and double claims.

    It will be delivered to the address you sent to Google claims department with your Verification form and which was the address you gave us. This are standard protocols and cannot be altered because of one customer. Please note that we are to return all unclaimed parcels after two weeks of contact with the winner. You will be required to come to UK and make the payment as you wish in Less than two weeks which is on the 9th day of December. We await your response and will be glad to be of good Services to you. Have a nice day.

    Yours in Service

        The question at hand is can Google do anything about it since their name is being used fraudulently? ~


        • Posted: 6 months, 1 week ago by info:

          It is hard to police the internet since it span across many different countries, with each country having different laws against cyber-crimes (some don't).

          Even if large companies were able to determine the locations of these cyber-criminals, it will be tough to bring them to justice because of where they are located. How can an American company bring someone to justice that is located in a communist country like North Korea, that hates the United States of America. ~

    Maybe I'm just the suspicious type, but this email stunk like dead fish from the very start.

    First, there was no Google logo on the email, supposedly from Larry Page. It is inconceivable that he, of all people would leave the company logo that he worked so hard and long to create off of ANY correspondence.

    Second, the sentence that directs one to the "attach" document could only come from someone unfamiliar with the English language. A glaring error IMO.

    Lastly, the outrageously large amount of money supposedly offered (USD 760,000) is just too good to be true.

    Bottom line: DON'T BE FOOLED BY THIS EMAIL! ~

    A N N I V E R S A R Y P R O M O T I O N 2 0 1 4 U K

    I am Madison Stone (Claims Officer) assigned to your Claims.
    I wish to congratulate you for being part of our selected winner this year. This promotion was set-up to
    encourage the active users of the Google search engine and the Google ancillary services.
    Hence we do believe with your winning prize, you will continue to be active and patronage to the Google
    search engine. Google is now the biggest search engine worldwide and in an effort to make sure that it
    remains the most widely used search engine, we ran an online e-mail beta test which your email address
    won.
    Thanks for your immediate response and information's concerning your winning has been taken to the
    verification department.
    To avoid unnecessary delay and complications you are to provide the following details below for
    verification and processing:
    ========== ====== ===== =========== =========== ======== =====
    (1) FULL NAME:
    (2) FULL ADDRESS:

    (5) SEX:
    (6) OCCUPATION:
    (7) TELEPHONE:
    ======== ======= ======= ======= ======== ====== ======= ======
    The Google Promotion Award Team has discovered a huge number of double claims due to winners
    informing close friends relatives and third parties about their winning and also sharing their pin numbers.
    As a result of this, these friends try to claim the funds on behalf of the real winners. The Google
    Promotion Award Team has reached a decision from headquarters that any double claim discovered by
    the Board will result to the cancelling of that particular winning, making a loss for both the double
    claimer and the real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the informer to the double claimer
    about the prize. So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly confidential
    until you claim your prize.
    Congratulations once again from all Staff ~

    (5) Occupation/Company.
    (6) Age/Gender.
    (7) Ever Won An Online Lottery?
    (8) How Do You Feel As A Winner?

    The Google Promotion Award Team has discovered a huge number of double claims due to winners informing close friends relatives and third parties about their winning and also sharing their pin
    numbers. As a result of this, these friends try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners. The Google
    Promotion Award Team has reached a decision from headquarters that any double claim discovered by
    the Lottery Board will result to the canceling of that particular winning, making a loss for both the double
    claimer and the real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the informer to the double claimer
    about the lottery. So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly
    confidential until you receive your prize.

    Congratulations from the Staffs
