Scam - "Google Foundation Promotion" is a Fake

Would you share this Article with others?

The "Google Foundation Promotion" email message below is a scam. There is no such promotion and the fake email message is being sent by scammers, to trick the recipients into sending them their personal information and money, by falsely claiming that they are recipients of the Google Foundation Grant Award. Remember, Google will never ask you to send your personal information via email messages or ask you to send money in order to receive a grant.

This type of scam will ask you to send your personal information and subsequently ask you to send money in order to receive your so-called grant. But, once the scammers receive your money, they will disappear leaving you disappointed.
