Beware of "Google Lottery Result Announcement" Sweepstakes Scam

Beware of "Google Lottery Result Announcement" Sweepstakes Scam

Google users, beware of the "Google Lottery Result Announcement" sweepstakes scam email message below. The fake email message was created and sent by scammers/cyber-criminals, to trick the recipients into sending their personal information and money, by claiming that they are winners of the e-mail electronic online sweepstakes organized by Google. But, there is no Google lottery, promotion or award, and Google will never ask their users to send their personal information via email message, or send money via Western Union, MoneyGram or other money transfer services.

Please continue reading below.

This type of lottery scam will ask the recipients to send their personal information and subsequently ask them to send money in order to receive their so-called prizes. But, the recipients should not respond to the email message or follow the instructions in it. Google is not taking part in or endorsing any lottery game, so recipients of email messages claiming that they have won some lottery prize endorsed by Google, should know it is a scam.

If the recipients send their personal information, the cybercriminals will use it to further scam them. Remember, once you are asked to send money, especially via Western Union or MoneyGran, for taxes, delivery charges, services charges, custom fees, or any other charges or fees, in order to receive a lottery prize, it is scammers attempting to rob you.
