There is No Google Lottery - Do Not Be Fooled by Scammers

Would you share this Article with others?

There is no Google lottery, reward or promotion giving away thousands or millions of dollars to online users. Therefore, online users are advised to delete email messages claiming that they are winners of the Google lottery or promotion giving away thousands or millions of dollars. They should also not follow the instructions in them.

Lottery scammers are sending out fake Google lottery email messages, in an attempt to trick potential victims into sending them their personal information, by claiming that they are so-called winners.

Information sent to the lottery scammers by their potential victims will be used to contact them, in an attempt to further trick the same potential victims 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 Google lottery, reward or promotion. Therefore, online users should delete email messages requesting personal information which claim that they are winners of Google lotteries, rewards, or promotions giving away thousands or millions of dollars in prizes.

Note: Some of the names, addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers or other information in samples on this website may have been impersonated or spoofed.
