    Text Scams

    caffrrob

      Anyone receive a text from TargetPrizes.com indicating they won a prize?  They are asking to go on the computer and enter a code to receive the prize.  I am pretty confident this is a scam and was wondering if anyone else is getting these.  Please advise.

          If it's like the one I received last week, it appeared to be spam to me.  I forward those to SPAM (7726); Verizon replies with a text asking for the number that sent the spam text.  I reply and the texts stop.

            Didn't know that but good to know, thanks. 

             

            I actually haven't rec'd any since I got my Maxx HD but I did get about a half dozen with my previous phone (Droid X)

             

            To caffrrob, pretty much anytime you get notified you won something for nothing, it's not ligitimate.
