Google Fortune Telling , which is not affiliated with Google Incorporation, is an initiative that attracts people by asking them a question “what does your future look like?”. When clicked on the question takes users to the hoax website which upon asking any question related to future automatically redirects them to another webpage.

The webpage says “OF COURSE WE CAN’T PREDICT YOUR FUTURE!”. It further adds “But 60 million refugees ask themselves every day if they have a future at all. So we used a fake Google-site to get your attention because apparently you were interested in your own future. Please take a moment to think of their future”.

Fake Google site asks users to feel free to donate your time, money or love and spread the word as it believes few structural solutions are needed on political level for this growing European problem.

The fortune telling website suggests people to either check local initiatives or donate to one of the charities related to refugee crisis.

Moreover there is a counter on the webpage that shows increasing number of refugees during your stay at Google Fortune Telling to highlight that crisis is getting more severe every second.
