GOOGLE ANNIVERSARY WINNING NOTIFICATION
We wish to congratulate you over your success in the official publication of results of the E-mail electronic online sweepstake organized by Google, in conjunction with the Foundation for the Promotion of Software Products (F.P.S.P) and confirmed by our co-sponsors Visa®/MasterCard® International. Google earns its profit mainly from advertising using their very own Gmail, Gala, Sify e-mail services, Google Maps, Google Apps, Orkut social networking, You Tube video sharing, Google search engine and the Google ancillary services which are all offered to the public for free.
This is to inform you that you are among the Ten (10) lucky winners of Category A. Hence we do believe with your winning prize, you will continue to be active to the Google search engine/ancillary services. Google is now the biggest search engine worldwide and in an effort to make sure that it remains the most widely used search engine, we ran an on-line e-mail beta test which your email address won £950,000.00.
A winning cheque will be issued in your name by Google Promotion Award; for the sum of Nine Hundred and Fifty Thousand Great British Pounds Sterling (£950,000.00) and also a certificate of prize claims will be sent alongside your winning cheque cashable at any bank.
You are advised to contact the assigned Google Program Administrator/Coordinator with the following details:

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 from its headquarters that any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the canceling of that particular winning, leading to 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.
Congratulations from the Staffs & Members of the Google interactive Lotteries Board Commission.
Lawrence “Larry” Page – Co-founder and CEO of Google Inc™
Scam alert! The E-mail above is a SCAM. It’s a Nigerian Lottery scam, the story and all names & roles are fake. The real Google inc. has nothing to do with this. This is a variation on a previous Google Lottery Scam e-mail they sended earlier this week. The scammers will ask you for money upfront as ‘costs’ before you get the ‘prize’ (which you will never get offcourse).
If you’ve more information and/or received this message too please comment below. Describe how you got it (as an e-mail or comment? The message etc), thanks in advance!

Update from Jim:
I just received an email in regards to winning the google promotion award for 950,000 sterling pounds. It is exactly the same as the emails you have shown except the new response email appears more valid because it is firstname.lastname@example.org. Just wanted to share to update scam alert.
