Hi all,

One of my friends just recieved a message on her cellphone with this message:

Quote:

"Your mobile number won 750.000 Euros from the Espania global promotion. contact claim dept. on
Tel: 0034664219273
Fax: 0034911013657
Email: mcellproaim.com



She can't see where the message was sent from, in the "from" field it just says "movistarxes".

I'd like to know whether some of you have experiences with scams like this, and also open the possibility that you can have some fun out of this lad Twisted Evil
From what my friend has told me it seems like he's just sending to random phone numbers. At the moment apparently he "distributes" his messages in the Sc4ndin4vian area.

EDIT: I wasn't sure on whether I should post it here or on the Phone Lads forum - Mods, you have my blessing to move the thread if you feel like.

Almost certainly a routine, if evolved, 419.

Failing that, it could be some sort of reverse-billing fiddle.

100% scam. I would not bait a lad who has my personal phone number...it's not worth it.

Scam for sure. I have gotten them on my cell phone - one was sent to me a few days ago. I delete them and move on. Very Happy
