GOOGLE PROMO email found in inbox offering prize money from Google... djpurity 10/4/10 9:31 PM
This is the body of the email I got from "in...@googleteam.com" AKA "FEDEX COURIER SERVICE"

I can't seem to be able to find a way to contact Google about this message, since I would think they would want to know there is a scam going on using their name, or at least a name that insinuates that it is related to Google. But the only phishing they allow to report is suspicious email from other gmail users, so I can't use their form. Anyone know how to contact Google about this or which email to report it to?  Thanks

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 winnings and also sharing their identification numbers. As a result of this, these friends try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners. The google promotion award committee has reached a decision from the headquarters at the United Kingdom that any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the disqualification of the winners lottery. So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly confidential until you claim your prize.
