Beware of "Google Anniversary Promotion Award" Lottery Scam

2015-01-21T16:47:24 -  +
Beware of "Google Anniversary Promotion Award" Lottery Scam

The "Google Anniversary" email message below is a scam created by lottery scammers to trick the recipients into sending their personal information and money, by claiming that they are winners of the Google Anniversary Award promotion. There is no Google lottery, and Google will never ask you to send your personal information via email message. Remember, never send money in order to receive lottery prizes; and if you are asked to do so, it is the first red flag that someone is attempting to scam you.

Please continue reading below.

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.

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 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 claim your prize.

Congratulations from the Staffs & Members of the Google interactive Lotteries Board Commission.

Mrs.Charlene Richards.
Promotion Award Manager.
C2015 Google Corporation.

      The only problem is that they will be contacting you with the information that you have sent, and will attempt to scam you. Therefore, be careful going forward so that you are not tricked into sending them money or more information.

        Hello,

        There is no Google lottery team. And, there is no Google lottery. The email messages that you have received are sent by lottery scammers, who are trying to trick you into sending money.

        If you have already sent your information to the scammers, please be careful next time, because they will use the same information to attempt to trick you into sending money or more information.

    Thanks for the alert. Am from Kenya and received a similar message last week that state I am a lucky winner of 500,000 sterling pounds. I was further instructed to send my personal info to the fiduciary agent to claim my prize. Though hestitant I send them my official names and phone contacts but was reluctant to send the delivery address.

    Interesting I received a winning certificate with my real name fully printed on it and signed by an alleged fiduciary agent and google manager. I suspected this and searched for the winning ticket number in the google search and realised that the said ticket number does not exist.

    Thanks God that I didn't engage further with them. This is a high tech scam and many will definitely get into their trap. Keep informing us.

    I, too, received an email informing me I had won. The original information provided was basic and could be obtained easily. I DID not provide any additional information after the original email.

    It is definitely a complex scam since they use all the supposedly appropriate names. BEWARE!!! I checked scopes.com and nothing was listed. Only when I entered Google Incorporation did I locate this valuable information.

    Thank you.

    I was sent the 2015 google lottery e-mail and I find it rases so much hope, especialy when it would be a life changing win.

    It's so wrong of these people and something should be done to track them down.

    Is something being done is there no way of tracking these people???
    hopes are raised and dissapointment beyond belief.

    If these people are ever found I want a piece of revenge for raising false hope.

    Firstly, that request some personal information not MONEY, but I knew that it's a fake anyway. I was wondering and then I sent my details.

    The next day I received message from NETWORK ONLINE OFFICE. There it was written that for receiving your money here is two way to get it....bla.bla.. then I saw bold in letters: "HERE YOU ARE REQUESTED TO PAY 670.00 USA DOLLAR FOR NONE RESIDENTIAL CLAIMING TAX CLEARENCE FOR GIVEN HER/HIM OVER $920.000.00...." and so forth.

    There was a contact number. So I called him and he answered and said YES CONGRATS YOU HAVE WON... His english was worst than mine, immediately I doubted that.

    So I asked him questions like: "CAN YOU GET THE MONEY WHICH YOU ARE REQUESTING FOR THE "TAX" FROM THAT PRIZE?" The answer was of course "NOT"..

    So brothers and sisters don't believe in them and don't ever wonder like me because they are all FAKE.

    Keep working to earn some money by your efforts. NO MONEY COMES EASY!!!

    I only regret that I wasted some of my cell phone money!!!

    Another question is:

    How does one win without participation in event?

    Was almost referring to my country office to confirm more about the draw and relaxed back.

    Also the letter was signed by Lawrence Page who is the co-founder of Google and Paul Buchheit the man behind Gmail Apps.

    Did my research and failed to submit to the email pitch.

    Google clean your house as it can easily bring you down and all the brand you have built for years will automatically go down the drain as customer will lose trust in your data management and confidentiality agreement each client agrees to before subscribing the Google!

    There must be a way of doing it. Why should there be so many google users being swindled as Google watches.

    I received following email few days ago:

    ---
    "GOOGLE ANNIVERSARY WINNING NOTIFICATION

    We wish to congratulate you on this note, for being part of our selected winners in our just concluded internal promotion draw this year, this promotion was set-up to encourage the active users of the Google search engine and the Google ancillary services… we ran an online e-mail beta draw which your email address won Nine Hundred and Fifty Thousand Great British Pounds Sterling (£950,000.00) ….and so on."
    ---

    I was too busy and fool enough to answer and give my name to the Email address given with the message.

    So I got the following email yesterday:

    ---
    "On behalf of the screening committee of the Google Promotion Award Team, I wish to formally announce to you that you have successfully passed the Email screening and Verification test and clarification from our payment Office.

    ---

    and I was required immediately contact British International Courier.
    And again, I was fool enough to contact.

    Today,at last, I began to be suspicious, when British International Courier asked for postage change from £400 to £680, and that reverse payment is ruled out.

    So, what can I do now to make all my mistakes undone?

      The good thing is that you didn't send any money and they don't have enough information to steal your identity.

      So, be careful next time because those scammers will continue to attempt to defraud their victims.
