This morning, I received this SMS telling me I’d won $20,000.
Congratulations your simcard winner GRANDPRIZE $.20000 from COMPONY PETRONAS. Please contac office petronas centre +628139912722.
Obviously I was immediately suspicious as who the hell tells you have won $20,000 via SMS?
But then who the hell tells you this who can’t even spell "company" or “contact” right. It sounds like some demented Latin American wrote this. Even though apparently this scam originated in Malaysia.
I’ve had a few people try to scam me but this has to take the biscuit for not making it anywhere near over the first hurdle.
