Think to yourself - Did I buy a ticket? Does this look too good to be true? 
If so, then it probably is .... Spam!!

Amazing, How come Google let this one escape the SPAM filter?
Some people who would automatically delete it may think it is genuine because it kanded in their inbox.
Come on GMAIL, fix your filters quickly.

this real or spam?
Re: weird mail from gmail GOOGLE GIVE-AWAY WINNING NOTIFICATION BugiWugi 7/2/09 12:26 PM
in ed letter is seen address (Google Promotions <win...@google.co.uk>)
why administration google does not answer us ?
Re: weird mail from gmail GOOGLE GIVE-AWAY WINNING NOTIFICATION Joshua 7/2/09 2:40 PM
I don't see the google.co.uk address anywhere.

But in any case, these are definitely fraudulent.

They fail the "If it seems too good to be true..." test and some quick searches will show that these types of messages have been circulating for many years.
Re: weird mail from gmail GOOGLE GIVE-AWAY WINNING NOTIFICATION mariAngel 7/9/09 10:58 AM
i got an email too of the same kind in my hotmail address. i do not know how to confirm it since it looked legit with google's usa address at the bottom of the message too. and the form attached looked legit too.

but then, there is also another message received. supposedly from yahoo, but it stated a ghana contact no. so it was just those african spam messages.

and i thought this was an answered prayer!!!!

Re: weird mail from gmail GOOGLE GIVE-AWAY WINNING NOTIFICATION merci.suleik 7/16/09 7:31 AM
I also received a similar email from a mr. Benfield.  Of course i thought it was an answer to my prayers.  But obviously this is a hoax, since all the foregoing letters seem to have the same luck numbers.  I actually sent in the details requested.  Is there no law in the UK that arrests these hoaxers?
Re: weird mail from gmail GOOGLE GIVE-AWAY WINNING NOTIFICATION JohnyR 7/16/09 8:55 AM
I really wonder how it is possible, that so many people believe this scam messages. I mean, come on, you all are sitting in front of computer maybe even for years.. I would understand if someone spent last ten years in cave or something ;-)

GOOGLE NEVER ANSWERS ANY THING, AS  FAR AS GETTING RID OF SPAM, THEY SHALL BE SUED
Re: weird mail from gmail GOOGLE GIVE-AWAY WINNING NOTIFICATION modbill 8/30/09 12:34 AM
Got the same stuff this week.
I answered Mr. Grahams Benfields mail by asking is this spam or...? and got a personal answer, which seemed authentic
together with the second letter [quoted above]

I reacted becaus the name of Google is in here, certificate from google, etc.
So even google - gmail isn't quite filtering the crap
Re: weird mail from gmail GOOGLE GIVE-AWAY WINNING NOTIFICATION N8FX 4/26/10 8:54 AM
Well! It's not a scam, that's for one thing. I had a friend sign up for it and he got a Motorola Droid out of it! brand spankin' new Droid. Unlucky part is- his carrier is AT&T. But yes- it could be spam to you. But just make double sure that whoever sent the message is actually someone that works for Google.
Re: weird mail from gmail GOOGLE GIVE-AWAY WINNING NOTIFICATION Joshua 4/26/10 8:59 AM
@N8FX: I'm not sure exactly which message you are talking about, but all the messages quoted above are definitely scams. Yes, google does give stuff away occasionally, but not anything resembling what is written above.

Should I reply this mail?
because it look like different with the other post
Re: weird mail from gmail GOOGLE GIVE-AWAY WINNING NOTIFICATION JohnW2 7/23/10 2:20 AM
NO!!!!!!! They're all just Phishing expeditions.
All they want are your details (for Identity fraud purposes) - Google already has them, and besides - the company ISN'T into giving away money!!
Just think: did you buy a ticket for any such lottery or competition? If you didn't, then how come you won?

BTW: when did you ever see a UK phone number +44-7xx which wasn't a mobile number? 
And you should be aware that Mobile numbers can charge you £10's per second of calling if they are so set up. And you'll only find out about any large phone call costs when you get your next bill !!!!

Re: weird mail from gmail GOOGLE GIVE-AWAY WINNING NOTIFICATION mgggroup 10/4/10 12:04 PM
 I received the same letter!! They make it look so real!! God, don't these people have something better to do with their time then to scam good honest people??!!

What goes around comes around so watch out scammers....it'll happen to you one day!!!

PEOPLE PEOPLE PEOPLE....no one gives out free money just like that...always do your research before providing your personal information to anyone!!!
