Congratulation Once again FROM THE BOARD DIRECTORS

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.


Analysis:
These are the emails circulating with various titles like "The Coca-Cola Award Notification," "Coca-Cola Email Promo," "Coca-Cola Company Draw," "The Coca-Cola Promo Winning Notification," "The Coca-Cola Worldwide Christmas Promo," "Notification for Coca-Cola Foundation Cash Aid" announcing Coca Cola Awards, Coca Cola jackpot, Cash Prizes and Sweepstakes. These messages are not facts, they are simply hoaxes, and are not to be believed.

They are simply a means to gather your private bank account information and/or collect money from you.

Coca Cola does give My Coke Rewards officially, but it is a program offered only in the United States. And the official website for My Coke Rewards mycokerewards.com. The company also mentioned about these hoax messages in their official website. Below is their official response.

"The Coca-Cola Company is in no way associated with these emails, text messages, letters, unauthorized websites or programs. We are not a sponsor and our name and trademarks are used here without permission"

Therefore, any such scam emails should be discarded and email recipients should not share any kind of personal information with them.
