Would you share this article with others to help inform them?

Scammers are sending out fake email messages, which claim that Tesco, a British multinational grocery and general merchandise retailer, is giving away £500 grocery gift cards or shopping vouchers. The links in the fake email messages will take potential victims to the following fake and deceptive websites: "www.vip-winners.eu" and "www.winalert.co.uk." The two fake and deceptive websites were created by scammers and should never be visited, because both websites use the £500 grocery gift cards or shopping vouchers as bait, to lure potential victims to them, in attempt to trick them into signing up for premium mobile phone services and other premium services that they will be charged for weekly.

    I have been scammed by this on my mobile phone. I am now plagued with repeat messages on my iphone. I can find no way to delete, although I have pressed STOP beside some of these messages. I have tried to block the number but with no success. 0872381441

    Had a text message from 447867317604 saying that I'd been officially selected for a chance to win £500 Tesco Gift card and suggesting I apply to http://bit .ly/101lfAp.

    Needless to say, I won't be.
