Hi All, 

Just got a text on my phone telling me I just won US$900,000 in the ongoing 'Apple Inc. Mobile Promo'  and asking me to email and address for details. 

Yeah, I don't think so.

Also I don't in anyway think this has anything to do with Apple.

Stay safe you all.  




Didn't anybody tell you I was a hacker?

This is not "new"... They only changed the "sponsor", but it's no different from the "Microsoft Lottery", the "UK Lottery Commision" and so on.

Most people here probably receive one of those every day - I know I do. Luckily they all go to the spam folder automatically...
