    I got an SMS from the person called Fred Wales saying I have won 80O 000 that I should email him to claim.

    He replied and said Mr Craig Adamson will send me a form that requires my personal information and I became suspicious and started to google aoknorth bank in London and I couldn't find such a person.

    So what must I do because I need that money?
