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.

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.

    I also received an e-mail attached with a letter from Sundar Pichai, CEO (with a signature on Google's seal), congratulating me on winning the E-mail Electronic Online Sweepstakes Organized by Google, in conjunction with---- held on August 1st 2018 in London UK.

    It says I am among the Twelve (12) selected winners of 950,000.00 Great British Pounds each. After some correspondences, they requested me to pay 550 or 600 Pounds for the delivery of Cheque.

    I did not pay because it seemed a scam. I agree to the someone's comment that Google will not conduct such a big lottery or sweepstake as a promotion.
