Google Services Sweepstake is a Lottery Scam

Google Services Sweepstake is a Lottery Scam

The "Google Services Sweepstake" email message below is a scam. The fake email message has been created by lottery scammers to trick the recipients into sending their personal information and money, by claiming that they are winners in a so-called Google Services sweepstake. But, there is no Google lottery or sweepstakes, and Google will never ask you to send your 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.
