    this is a new high tech method of committing a fraud. these addresses and phone numbers are usually fake or or obtained on temporary basis. If out of 1 million people just 0.1 % fall as their prey and submit the required 630 pound which is equivalent to say Rs.5000/- they can earn 1000x5000 (Rs.5.0 lac) by just sending these fake sms in the garb of reputed organisations such as Guinness. Kindly do not fell prey to them as all of them are fakes and the origin as reported is from Africa.

    I have also received the same message on my cell phone on7th April 2009. I have just emailed them.

    On knowing so many pepple have gt the same msg, i dont believe anyone of us would get the money. Infact what Mr. Deepak is saying may be by and large true. We should complain about these false messgs. Can someone suggest where should we post it so that some immediate action is taken.

    Regards
    Tulika

    Guys just be aware of such frauds. Dont even think abt it. They may provide you wit their websites and all dont enter any personal or financial info as it may land you in trouble. All of it had actually started in 1929 and is well known as ponzi scam. Everyday abt 500 people recv such msg or mails. There is on such address in uk and the phone number is a "pay as you go" account which is a prepaid sim card. Once you pay the said amount the cell number and the mail id is changed. So just be aware of such msg.

    Ce charge, so it is better for us to be silent in these cases and dont to be excited by getting these messages in mobile. thanks you have not given money bu I have given money around 48000, and now realising why I have given this amount of money to a fake company
