|I received a similar message this morning. |
You have won 385, 000.00 pounds in the 2011 CNN Award Promo.
For claims send (blah blah) to email@example.com
You would think they knew my number after sending me a text.
|I received the same for 450, 000 pounds in the 2011 CNN awards promo! on April 23 and being in Australia I thought this odd. Anyway all I had to do to confirm my suspicions was to Google it up and well here it is ...|
Dont fall for it people!
|same here i received 950, 000.00 GBP on Marcch 23 notification via winning a pre-numbered ticket. when i replied loud demanding that this be clarified i was 5 days after a verification report complete with CNN-UN-Donation award including a form to be filled up.|
I made a research in the internet including the United Nations in Manila and discovered that theres no such a thing. The catch is the payment, one will have to pay via the messengerial service since the winner cannot go to UK to collect personally
technology has found its form in international rackets.
|I received my text at 1.25am Monday 25 April 2011. I'm not an idiot either but I know of someone who actually fell for a similar scam a few years ago.|

Wouldnt it have been nice it it was true :)
|I also received the same through email that I won 950, 000 GBP. I couldn't believed my eyes because here in the Philippines, our first practice was, to be well informed on the things such as this, if you have not joined any lottery or raffles, or promotions, never believe that you actually won. That's why, i googled it, and here it is. I knew it was a bogus. Shame on these people who might think Filipinos are idiot. We may be poor but we are not idiots! We work hard for our family. We work hard to be useful for our country. Shame on you, whoever you are!|
