*Scam* Power Root Winning RM10,000,00 SMS


I received this Bahasa Malaysia SMS:

“Tahniah” Simcard Anda B’Jaya menangi RM10,000,00 dr: “POWER ROOT” Nampak di TV3 s’mlm pkl23:30 No.PIN AD2547 Sila hub.Office 019-851-0123 “ORIGINAL”

Translation to ENGLISH

“Congratulation” Your Simcard have WON RM10,000,00 from “POWER ROOT” At or I Saw at TV3 yesterday at 23.30 No.PIN AD2547  Please call our Hub Office at 019-851-0123 “ORIGINAL”


At first When I receive this SMS I thought I would gonna be a millionaire. But i keep thinking and thinking. It make me think that money would not just drop from the sky. One weird thing too how the FU*K they know that my SIMCARD Won,without knowing the number, they think there are superman or sperman thinking that I will fall for that.


So anybody get this SMS please do not believe or trust it. It is a *SCAM* if it is not a SCAM call them up and call them sent the money in front of a police station so that we will know it is real or not if you are curious maybe it is real.

I also got the same SMS this morning, but its office number is different 006285242678357 and the number it came from is also not from regular phone number which is +6285229216157.

And as usual, when I get confused I will ask uncle Goo (i.e: Google) and he sent me over here. Thank you for sharing.

Since the PIN number is the same, AD2547, I don't have to call the number to confirm it is a fake.
