Beware of "Google Annual Promotion Reward 2018" Lottery Scam

There is no "Google Annual Promotion Reward 2018." Therefore, recipients of the email message below, which claims that they are winners in the "Google Annual Promotion Reward 2018," is a lottery scam. The lottery scam was created by scammers to trick the recipients into sending their personal information and money, by claiming that they are the winners of the Google Annual Promotion Reward 2018. But, there is no such Google lottery, and Google will never ask online users to send their personal information via an email message.

Please continue below.

This type of lottery scam will ask you to send your personal information and subsequently ask you to send money in order to receive your prize. But, please do not respond to the email message or follow the instructions in it. 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.

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 from its headquarters that any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the canceling of that particular winning, leading to 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.

    Congratulations from the Staffs & Members of the Google Interactive Lotteries Board Commission.

    Yours faithfully,
