Fake Coca-Cola or Coke Email - "Consumer Rewards See Congratulatory Note"

The email below: "Consumer Rewards; see congratulatory note," is a phishing scam. The fake email message was sent by scammers and NOT by Coco-Cola Company. Every month, thousands of these email messages are sent out by scammers to trick their potential victims into stealing their personal information, financial information and money. Remember, never send your personal information to anyone in an email message or send money to someone who contacted you via email message. And, Coco-Cola and other legitimate companies will never ask their customers or potential customers to send their personal information, credit card information, or financial information via email messages, or send money via Prepaid Debit Cards, Western Union, MoneyGram, or other money transfer services.

Although the fake email message appears as if it was sent by Coco-Cola or Coke, it was not. The cyber-criminals behind the fake email message use a technique called "Email Spoofing," which is used to make an email message appear as if it came from email address, but was actually sent from another email address.
