Google Foundation Grant

Google Grant Scam: How It Works

(with video below) The phrase “Google it” – meaning to advise someone to research information on their own – was added to the Webster’s Dictionary of Phrases nine years ago. But with the ubiquitous technology came along a plethora of scammers trying to take advantage of unsuspecting victims, including using the Google Calendar feature. However, today we are referring to the Google Foundation Scam – there are a few variations of it. In this article, we will show how they work and how YOU can report the criminals. First, let’s take a look at how to easily verify if the emails you receive are actually coming from the real Google headquarters or not.

Watch the video below to see how to identify if an email from Google is real or not:

How To Verify If A Google Email Is Real Video

In the most recent Google Grant Scam, people are receiving an email from a so-called Google Foundation. The message states:

“We wish to congratulate you on this note for being selected as a major customer this year. This promotion was set-up to encourage the active users of Google search engine and the Google ancillary services and confirmed by our co-sponsors Visa*/MasterCard* International.

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 online e-mail beta test which your email address won Eight Hundred and Sixty-Four Thousand Great British Pounds.

Beware of Google’s Anniversary Fake Prize

In the second variation of the scam, the email comes with the subject “WHAM! Consolation Prize Winning Notice!!!” The body of the email goes on to explain that as a frequent Google user, you have just won a consolation prize, for the “Google 21th anniversary draw”. The letter is signed by crooks claiming to be Lawrence Page, “Chariman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer at Google Inc” and Andrew Ferguson, “Google Promotion Board”.

The prizes are given, supposedly, to encourage you to continue using Google as your preferred search engine. All that is required for you to claim your prize is to fill out some personal identifying information and send it back, along a small fee. Once you do, you are promised to receive the grand prize of $950,000 pounds. Of course, all you receive for your trouble is the theft of your identity.

This is the content of the fake email:

“This promotion was set-up to encourage the active users of the Google search engine and the Google ancillary services. Hence we do believe with your winning prize, you will continue to be active and patronage to the Google search engine.

A winning cheque will be issued in your name by Google Promotion Board, and also a certificate of prize claims will be sent along side your winning Cheque. In your best interest to avoid mix up of numbers and names of any kind, we request that you keep the entire details of your award strictly from public notice until the process of transferring your claims has been completed, and your funds remitted to your account.

This is part of our security protocol to avoid double claiming or unscrupulous acts by participants/ non participants of this program. Kindly fill-in the verification and fund release form below. (form contains name, address, country, nationality, sex, occupation, age, etc).

Please contact your claims agent immediately for due processing and remittance of your prize money to file for your prize claim, kindly contact your claims agent.

Contact claims office: Google Promotion Board Dr. Andrew Ferguson. E-mail: andrewferguson211@careceo.com.”

A third variation of the scam email comes with a ‘Official Notification’ subject title, referring to you with “Dear Google User”. It says you’ve been selected as a winner for using Google services, while attached is their Official Noticiation letter for your perusal (photo below).

The letter might be sign by a fake Matt Brittin, CEO of Google Ltd UK, or Larry Page, one of the founders of the company.

 

Google Grant Scam: How To Avoid

While it has been said time and again, it bears repeating: you will never get something for nothing. Google has never given prizes to users as a thank you for using their search engine.

Given that they are the number one preferred search engine – and have been since their inception – they do not have to give prizes to users to encourage them to Google more things. By being aware of the “if it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is” school of thought, you will save yourself a lot of trouble.

Last but not least, be aware of two other scams that involve Google’s name: the Google Calendar Invite Scam and the Google Restrictions Scam.

    Just received this scam this morning.

  25. Sherry Williams says:

    I just received a email from Google Foundation Grant, I felt that Google would not send such a cryptic email. Yes it would be nice to get a piece of a grant but I am sure Google would not do it this way. I really could use a cash infusion to better my life, but not by answering a scam letter. I wrote back saying I did not believe them and I got an instant email back asking for more questions. Thank you for letting us know about these scams.

    Fund a contest to develop a low cost drone that PGE could station on every power pole (or every other pole) that would immediately dispatch to fight the first flare up of a wild fire.
    An army of cheap drones could drop fire retardant long before men and equipment could arrive.

    Can’t be that hard to develop!?

    Think of the lives, property, environment, etc!
