Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.

Analysis:
These kind of e-mails, supposedly from Google Gmail Incorporation, claim that the email recipient won a prize of 500,000.00 GBP in a lottery conducted as a part of their annual lottery promotions. And for the funds to be released and delivered to the winner's home, the email asks for a clearance charges up to 18,500 INR, which is to be deposited in their bank account. The email asks the winner to respond with their personal details like phone number, home address and photograph, along with the approval to pay the clearance charges.

The message however is a hoax, nothing but just another scam email intended to initiate dialogue with people, trick them and gain financial benefit. There is nothing like Google Gmail lottery or prize money, and definitely is not associated with Rediffmail. These scammers further try and convince email users by sending fake Air flight details of their prize delivery, and also fake emails from customs department of various international airports, requesting to deposit the clearance charges in their bank account. People who receive such fradulent emails are requested not to respond to them. Moreover, it is never a safe idea to share your personal information and bank account details with unknown sources like these as they can easily sell your contact details and also use your identity for fraudulent activities. Beware of such scam emails.
