Beware of "Googles 18th Anniversary Winner" Lottery or Award Scam

The email message below, which claims that the recipients have been selected as winners in "Google's 18th Anniversary Award" for using Google services is a lottery scam. There is no such Google lottery, and Google will never ask online users to send their personal information via email messages. This type of lottery scam will ask recipients to send their personal information and subsequently ask them to send money in order to receive their so-called prizes.

Remember, Google is not taking part in or endorsing any lottery games, so if you receive an email claiming that you have won some lottery prize endorsed by Google, it is a scam.
