Reveived text from +447437116725 saying "Your mobile number was selected as a winner of (pounds)1,500,000.00 on UK MOBILE LOTTERY with Draw number 626404. Email jameshoward761@gmail.com for claims.
Oddly, I'm currently in NZ using a NZ sim card, (and don't have a key for the pound symbol, which was actually used in the message I received), so why I would expect to win a UK lottery I'm not sure. I did buy the phone in the UK, and whatsapp uses my UK number, so whether it somehow came through that or something I don't know?
