scam alertThere is a new scam floating around the web, this one is being sent with the notification that FIFA and Gmail (Google) have a network promotion award and you have won $920,000.

The notification says that five Gmail users were randomly picked from 5 million gmail addresses and you won.

They then ask you to fill out your details below so that they can steal your money.

Here is a copy of the letter.

So if you get this letter, please do not fall for it.

Google's said Zineb, "Yes, the mail you received is definitely an phishing attempt. Google does not send these sorts of email."
