Just today I received a message on my mobile “CONGRATS {my_number} has WON $3000 CASH prize, call  +2463798153  now”.

At the first instance I was really happy, but a second thought over the message made me think of its veracity. Then immediately I went to the most searched place in the world, Google Search and put the query.

I got the answer immediately that this a scam message from an island near Nigeria. And the charges of calling the number is also very high, nearly Rs.50/- per minute.

If at all you get any such kind of messages or emails, be careful. Never give your personal information and its always best to check  in Google Search, before taking any action.
