Well I dont remember ever signing up for anything like this, vut my son goes on the internet and has signed up forstuff before. There is even this lottery website he has us signed up on so i emailed to gim asking what do i need to do to claim the money? I got a reply asking for my name, address, age, occupation, sex, and the reference number abd phone numver the text was sent to. At this point i got suspicious and asked him when did i sign up for this drawing? I even told him the whole thing sounds fishy. I have not heard back from him \"chris adams. Power Ball claims agent\". That is how i found this site when i was looking for information about recieving a text from powerball saying you won money. So now im sure tthat it is a scam after reading about another chris adams. Thank goodnes for this site to help people from getting ripped off. Ç
