Scam - There is NO GMail Lottery - Beware of Scammers Sending Out Fake Emails and Texts

Online users, beware of Gmail lottery scams that are being sent via email and text messages to potential victims by lottery scammers. It is important that everyone to knows 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 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 an email or text message. So, if you are asked to do so, more than likely, someone is attempting to scam you.

    I got one of these notices Dec. 7 on my phone by text -- the one saying I won $500,000 and an Apple laptop and asking for my mailing address. It has the exact same reply phone number as in your example -- 440-796-9136. They also list lotto@gmaillotto.com as a contact address, but that is not a valid Website. I was surprised they didn't fake the Website. Maybe it was shut down.

    They must have gotten my phone number from an application I filled out or gotten it because I have a Tracphone, which is associated with Gmail.

    I got a text yesterday evening (December 10, 2017 at 5:24 pm) claiming I was the winner of the gmail lottery. The prize was $500,000 USD, and an Apple Laptop. The sender claimed they were Gmail Inc. The sender requested that I send my name and mailing address to this email address: gmfttlo@gmail.com

    The number used to send the text was (200) 000-02. The was another provided in the text itself: (440) 796-9136.

    I hope this helps.
