Coles Supermarkets / sms's to phone

1 Australia Review updated:

Good morning, recently I have received some sms'`s to my mobile saying I have won a coles gift card. They then leave me a hot mail address to claim the prize. When trying these hotmail addresses they are invalid.Over the last month I would have to say I have had half a dozan or so, when trying to reply straight to the sms there is no return number it just says coles. Is this some sort
of scam or dose coles do this? below are two of the hot mail addresses
http://Coles.smsgfc.com and http://go.ingtello.com/ts456-sms-coles-bb-au

    I just got one of these text messages. Very strange I don't often shop at Coles. I have screen shotted it and blocked the sender.

    @Trish KS Definitely a scam as it SMS states we have issued a Cole's voucher to your account???? what account it is sure as hell not my Fly Buys account.
    Just mark as spam on your Mobile Phone. I have has 2 of these they just want you to get further scammed or get a Trojan or virus on your device.

    I never gave Coles my phone number. Must be scam, therefore I will spam and block it.

    I also rec'd a text informing me that a Coles gift card had been issued to my account. My phone Nos are registered on the DO NOT CALL REGISTER and I do not shop at Coles. When is the Communication Minister going to take action against these Company's that continually bombard the public with their promotions. I note that there is not a link to unsubscribe from their data base !!! so I can't tell them to nick off. (I am being polite)

    To whom it may concern. Just received a msg saying that Coles has issued a Coles gift card to my account. I don't shop at Coles. I think this must be a scam or something. so I have deleted the msg from my mobile.

    These are phishing scams and have nothing to do with Coles, apart from using their name. Forward the sms to SCAMwatch on 0429 999 888 and let them track these criminals down.
