There is No Google Sweepstakes, Lottery Promotion or Award

Would you share this Article with others?

There is NO Google sweepstakes or lottery, therefore, recipients of email messages like the one below, which claim they are winners in the Google lottery or sweepstakes are asked to delete them. The fake Google lottery or sweepstakes email messages are being sent by lottery scammers to trick their potential victims into sending them personal information. Once the lottery scammers receive their potential victims' personal information, they will subsequently ask them to send money in order to receive their so-called lottery prize. The lottery scammers will claim the requested money is for taxes, processing fees, delivery fee or some other fee. But, once the lottery scammers have received the money, they will take it and disappear and the victims will not receive the lottery prize that they were promised.

Remember, Google is currently not taking part in or endorsing any lottery games, so if you have received emails claiming that you have won thousands of dollars in a lottery, sweepstakes, promotion or an award endorsed by Google, they are scams. Also, Google will never ask their users or anybody else to send their personal or financial information via email messages.

    Google values your right to privacy! Your information is 100% secured and will be used exclusively for the purpose of this award only.

    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 cancellation 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.
