Is there any such Promotion by Google for a "User Reward 2012"?

Resolved Question:

Is there any such Promotion by Google for a "User Reward 2012"? I recently got an email purportedly from Google awarding me a huge sum of British Pounds, so I need to know how to respond. If it's Spam, I'm sure it must be illegal and how do I report it to Google?

Hello and thank you for using Just Answer.

That is most certainly spam. You should not reply to it at all.

Unfortunately thousands of those types of emails get sent to people everyday.

The worst part about it is that some people respond and that is how email accounts get stolen as well as personal information such as credit cards.

It is quite an epidemic and I am sure google is aware however if you would like to report it to them you may do so by following the instructions here.

Thank You
