On my cell phone I recv a text message as fol: "Congratulation, your GSM number won 800,000 pounds in the Global SMS Win. Your money is ready to be sent to you, for details contact Mr. Frank at [protected]@yahoo.co.uk. I guess I am about to win 800,000 pounds of scam and spam. Maybe I won a Russian tank! Moral? If it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is. Has anyone else gotten this e-mail...

    My name is Fahad from Oman. Listen everybody... I have recieved this message way back at the end of Augest. And believe me i was shocked and i tried to believe everyword on that message, so i sent to the e-mail in the message. After 2 or 3 days he replied, and said theat i have to fill a form, and i did. i reached a point where he said that if i want the money i have to send him first 850 pounds, he said its process tax. nd i'll have to reply to him in 7 days or the money will go. @ this time i knew 4 sure that the sms is fake, and these people will ask you 4 money, and then you will get nothing from them... BE CAREFUL PEOPLE

    i read in someone elses message that a friend sent money to the ###.
    to do that you need to be provided a bank account number to send the money to, if you recieve an offer such as "send us a processing fee of ?$$, so we can send you your prize" write down the account number and forward it to your federal police as these actions constitute fraud and feds just love busting fraudsters.

    it is an e-mail scam as soon as you send an email to the address in the message your computer will shut down and be filled with viruses. i have a separate computer i only use for browsing and downloads most ppl dont so the viruses that are downloaded can do damage to your system and steal personal information from your computer.

    Hi all, I just thought I would add to these posts as I too received this sms message claiming I won £900, 000. Unfortunately for us all, this is a con and is NOT true. I've spoken to someone else who also received the same SMS message and as they thought they really did win the money they followed it up and was told the money was secured in an account and all they had to do was send £8000 to this person and the money would then be transferred to them. Unfortunately for this person, she fell for this scam and did send the £8000 and hasn't heard or received anything from this competition. Now she is trying to come to terms with the fact that she has lost £8000 of her hard earned money. I wanted to post this on this site so no-one else falls for this scam and loses any money.

    well now... I also received a message telling me that I'd won 900, 000 pounds...seeing as so many people have obviously googled the message and found this page of other people's stories, it would suggest that the message is fraudulent. This is in addition to the fact that the competition does not require you to enter and there is also no clear benefit for the initiators and financiers of the competition.

    :p
    Have fun!
