Some time ago I received the following message on my personal mobile phone number:
YOUR MOBILE NUMBER HAS WON 780,000EURO IN THE WORLD LOTTO END OF YEAR PROMO.FOR CLAIMS EMAIL(NAME/ADDRESS/PHONE) TO:Worldlotto@mediacombb.net
A WhoIs search for mediacombb.net returns the following:
I certainly did not take part in this "World Lotto", so this being truthful is out of the question, and thus likely to be a scam.
How will the scammers benefit from me simply sending in my name, address and phone (which they already have), all of which they most likely have if they managed to get their hands on my personal phone number?
Not quite sure if it would be wise to go ahead with providing the requested info and update the question with further details as the case progresses.
