Just received a new text scam message
Your Phone Number won $2,500,000.00.  For claims, send an email to OR send your Phone Number for confirmation

Came from number +62450000.

Obviously a scam but my mother nearly fell for it and who knows how many other less distrustful folks have.  Might want to clamp down on whatever overseas link is responsible for this.
