Just received this SMS on my mobile from +447920490379 and I am assuming it is a fake:
CONGRAT: YOUR MOBILE NUMBER HAS WON FOR YOU $2, 000, 000 USD IN THE FREELOTTO MOBILE PROMO. FOR CLAIMS, SEND EMAIL: freelottoagent72@aol.co.uk & CALL: +447035924026

I would love it to be true but I would also like to think I am not that stupid to be sucked in by a very obvious fake winning notification.

I took an survey and at the end it said I could take a sample of Hydroderm just for shipping and handling but I got a sm.ans a jar of cream. Instead of being charged for 9.95 as the site said on the survey I was charged $69.00 and when I called the phone number on my bank statement they said I wasn't entitled to a refund as I had ordered the monthly supply. I have contacted my bank and told them I was disputing the charge and not to honor any more charges.

Freelotto.comny - suspect fraud
New Jersey
United States

Hi, I have been trying to cancell membership ( FAST ) with
" freelotto.com "for some sometime now, but was un-successful
they continue to ignore all my email requests, they never
replied to me not even once, so, to all of you experiencing this same problem and I see your complaints online, you must call
your credit card company and explain the situation, my credit card provider well dispute these chargers for me and credit my account, so you need to do the same.You can also file a complaint with the BBB and with consumer affairs agency, or with consumer protection agency in Washington DC.

Thank You

Don't worry guys, i got it too. Here i was thinking that the world was still in a financial crisis. If everyone wins this fake cash we'll all be ok...I think I might use it to sign up people to loan contracts like a bank does with it's imaginary cash (as noted in 'Modern Money Mechanics'), then charge heaps of interest and take their real assets (that they have worked hard for) when they can't pay back the imaginary money...hey if the banks can cheat why can't I??????

Yes, I, too received the exact same SMS or txt msg as we call them here in New Zealand, very, very late on Thursday night, 14/01/10.
If someone had sent the message to say I'd won $20 or even $200, I might believe it, but $2 million, no way. Has anyone actually tried ringing or emailing to find out how to get the money? How does this scam work? There would be no point to sending out all these messages, world-wide, if there was no potential reward for the sender. The calling code and email address are for UK (not Nigeria, this time).

I just got that text. Only this time they say to send your name and number to an email address, instead of call. Shouldn't they already know my mobile number if it supposedly won $2 mill? I'm thinking if I were to "claim" it would sign me up on some contract where they steal my money.
