Lottery winner scam via text message and phone calls
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   H. James
Email Address:
   hjames671991@gmail.com
I received a text message stating,

\"Congratulations! Your mobile number was selected as a lucky winner of S1,500,000,000 on UK LOTTERY Draw with Draw number 626404. Email hjames671991@gmail.com for claims\"

Then the following day, he attempted to call me. I know a few other people who also received the same text message. My general rule is, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Be careful folks.
