Beware of "Google Reward End of Year Promotion 2018" Lottery Scam

There is no "Google Reward End Of Year Promotion 2018" lottery. Therefore, recipients of the email message below, which claims that the recipients are winners in the "Google Reward New Year Promotion 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 same so-called lottery. But, there is no Google lottery, and Google will never ask online users to send their personal information via an email message.

Please continue reading 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.

    What am I supposed to do once I have already responded to this scam?

    I submitted my name, next of kin, address, and phone number. Nothing else ! Since I wasn’t asked for any money or credit card number I believed that nothing dangerous could happen to me.

    How should I, eventually, protect myself for the future possible misuse of these few pieces of information I have given?

      Just be careful going forward because the scammers will contact you, using the information you have sent, and attempt to scam you. Always stop, think and research before doing anything.
