A New Scam on the Rise ! – Beware
We used to get so many mails with the heading ” You won the lottery … ” , ” Confidential : I have xxx,xxx,xxx,xxx $ …. ” , ” You have be chosen .. ” , Etc . When they first came into action , many innocent people fell into their trap and lost thousands. Today i wanted everyone to know that there is new scam rising in the world of SMS.!
It all started a few days back when my mom asked me to check her sms about a message she received that she had her mobile number has been chosen for a prize money. when i searched for the message and found it , i am surprised , simply because this has been there in Internet for years , Now in mobile ? WTH ? Hers was a BSNL number , so i thought some As$hole is sending some stupid message.
Today , I got a similar message. Take a look.
If you have ever come across or still haven’t , please inform your parents , relatives that these things are on prowl and to be careful. Many people , especially Indians are susceptible for these kind of scams. They think its from the Airtel / Bsnl / Idea , just like some other alert , they fail to see the difference between the spam and real alerts from the Mobile companies.
