Received text saying 1 Million USD had been donated to me

I received a text at 1:09 A.M. claiming I had been donated 1 Million USD and I just needed to email for more details. It came from a weird number 1410100002... Almost like it was an automated text sent out to a mass group (kinda like when you get rebox texts from 727272) . I will copy and paste exactly what was sent in this text message

Be careful with these scammers. I have no idea how they got my number but when speaking directly to then they sound very persuasive and are very persistent. Don't want anyone else caught up in a mess. Is there any other places to report them too along with her? Number has already been blocked!
