Just received this SMS on my mobile from +447920490379 and I am assuming it is a fake:

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 just received the txt. Im guessing you send them your details and they put you on a mailing list. Worst case its some identity theft scam. Id love to know some way to get back at them.. Really stuff them up.

I got this text yesterday and the alarm bells went off. I received a similar letter or text to the same effect a few years ago and it screamed "scam". Best just to ignore and keep dreaming. LOL

I also received this text. Not once but twice. Both from +233204435857 but with different email addresses. The text read:YOUR MOBILE NUMBER HAS WOND YOU 720, 000 (POUNDS) IN THE FREE LOTTOT MOBILE PROMOTION FOR CLAIMS EMAIL YOUR FULL NAME AND MOBILE NUMBER TO...
I also believe is a scam to build a database using mobile numbers.

Gday, yep, they got me too. I emailed and recieved an email telling me to contact the couriers for the cheque. the couriers got back to me via email telling me to wetern Union 400 Pounds. Seems a lot for an envelope with a cheque in it doesnt it? Not only that but i got the email at 3.00 Pm Aussie time, that makes it about 3.00 A.M in London, seems odd to have the offices ofa so called legitimate business manned at that hour does it not?? What a bunch of ****** do they think we are that bloody stupid?

I just received a text message last night at 6:30pm, and it said exactly the same as 'aussi1'. I decided to google this bunch before doing anything, since I didn't trust them. Suspicion confirmed, a scam of course!

Yeah whatever. I hope you're paid enough for that load of drivel Mokomoko.
I've just recieved the same SMS, from UK, would have been sent about 9pm their time.
For a start, where exactly is Central West in Australia? lol
Secondly, check out the frequency of these texts, if not a scam, where does that kind of dough come from?
If you've got that kind of money, send mine to the flood fund. Cheers

Congratulations! Your number has won you 2, 000, 000 pounds in the FREELOTTO.COM mobile promo.
for claims semd ref UK*** to email mob.claim@w.cn
Besides waking me up, the thing that concerns me is that given they have my mobile number am I going to go through
being charged for them to send text messages to me...as happened when I first bought my phone thru optus and found that the number they gave me was registered by a previous owner and was still received garbage messages and being charged for them!!!
