    I received an sms yesterday, 01 May 2019 from Fred Wales instructing me to claim R800,000. I asked the person how did they get my contact number.

    His response: The on-line UK Promotion held in United kingdom. Your cell number was attached to the world wide web computer. He said I should claim

    ticket number: 50027310037

    Reference number: 77340824

    Serial number: 4822410

    Etc etc.

    What bothered me is when they said in their email, shouldn't inform the third party until I get my funds.

    Is it a scam or a real deal

    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?
