There is no Google Alphabet 2016 Lottery, Reward or Promotion - Lottery Scam

There is no Google Alphabet 2016 Lottery, Reward or Promotion - Lottery Scam

Please note that there is no Google Alphabet lottery, reward or promotion giving away thousands or millions of dollars to online users. Therefore, online users should delete email messages claiming that they are winners, and not follow the instructions in them. Scammers are sending out the fake Alphabet 2016 Reward Promotion email message below, in an attempt to trick potential victims into sending them their personal information, by claiming that they are so-called winners. Alphabet is an American multinational conglomerate that is the parent company of Google and several other companies previously owned by them.

Once the scammers have received their potential victims’ information, they will contact them and attempt to further trick them into sending money. The scammers will claim that the requested money is for taxes, delivery fees or some other fees their so-called promotion or lottery winners must pay in order to receive their prizes.

But, there is no such Alphabet or Google lottery / promotion. Therefore, online users should delete email messages requesting personal information and claiming that they are winners of Alphabet or Google promotions/lotteries.
