"Your Mobile No. Just Won 1,000,000.00 GBP in the Coca-Cola 2012 Mobile Draw. To Claim Send Your Name, Address, Age, Mobile No. To E-Mail. email@example.com"
You may be excited when you see this message in your mobile. You may start dreaming about how to spend this huge money and start celebrating this. But your happiness will not last for long if you contact them for collecting the prize money and start following there instruction. Finally you will end up in losing your hard earned money.
So please be careful about these kinds of cheatings. They are the people who are trained or experts in this kind of scam and they will make you believe and cheat.
The drama starts when you send the details to them as per the instruction in the SMS. When you send the information, they will ask you to deposit a small amount (as compared to prize money) of Rs. 5,000/- to 10,000/- to their bank account for verification of your bank account to transfer the prize money. When you deposit this money, in few days they will come back and request you to deposit some more amounts in their account for the transaction cost of money transfer. After paying this much money, you will be very much waiting for the prize money. But you will never receive the money. Next time when you ask for prize money, they will request you to deposit quite big amount by giving some other reason. It will go on like this until you stop asking for money.
Since they will not revile their actual identity and address, you can’t find out them. Even if you give the police complaint, it is very difficult to catch them.
