The 2018 Google Anniversary Winning Notification Lottery Scams

The "2018 Google Anniversary Winning Notification" email message below is a 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 the 2017 Google Anniversary promotion or sweepstakes. 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.

Google values your right to privacy! Your information is 100% secured and will be used exclusively for the purpose of this award only.

The Google Promotion Award Team has discovered a huge number of double claims due to winners informing close friends, relatives and third parties about their winning and also sharing their pin numbers. As a result of this, these friends try to claim the lottery on-behalf of the real winners. The Google Promotion Award Team has reached a decision that any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the cancellation of that particular winning, making a loss for both the double claimer and the real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the informer to the double claimer about the lottery. So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly confidential until you claim your prize.

Please do not reply if you are NOT the owner of this Email-ID. Congratulations from the Staffs & Members of Google Board Commission.
