Beware of Gmail 2016 Network Promotional Award Lottery Scam
February 23, 2016
Gmail users, beware of a lottery scam called: "Gmail 2016 Network Promotional Award," that is being sent via email messages (see below) to potential victims by lottery scammers. It is important for everyone to know that there is no Gmail lottery, and there has never been one. So, recipients of email messages claiming that they are winners of a Gmail or Google lottery, should delete the email messages, and should never follow the instructions in them.
Please continue reading below.
Also, it is important to know that Google, the owner of Gmail, and other legitimate companies will never ask their users or customers to send them their personal information via email message. So, if you are asked to do so, more than likely, someone is attempting to scam you.
