My girl got sent this text message earlier today, I would be almost 100% sure this is BS and a scam, so thought I'd post it here. If it is in the wrong section I apologize:

From: [email protected]

"Your cell has been chosen to get a Best Buy (gift card) get it now!
enter 8738
http://infoprizewinnings.us"

......................................................................................................................

Not sure if you guys can shut the site down (I have not tried visiting the URL, due to possible malware etc etc) or can get the word out but just thought I'd share as it seemed post worthy.

Without a doubt. If she replies they will start sending her text messages and charge her for them. It can very virtually impossible to unsubscribe from these things and I have heard of people being charged up to $5 per text they receive.

Yeah that's what I thought.

So only if she replies? I ask as she has gotten a few so far with different emails but the same website.
