the "Google Awards 2018" Lottery Scam

The "Google Awards 2018" email message below is a lottery scam. The fake email message was created by lottery scammers to trick the recipients into sending their personal information and money, by claiming that they are winners of a so-called Google lottery. But, there is no Google award, lottery or sweepstakes, and Google will never ask you to send your personal information via an email message or send money in order to collect a prize.

the Google Awards 2018 Lottery Scam

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.
