Congrat: your mobile number has won for you $2, 000, 000 usd in the freelotto mobile promo. For claims, send email: [protected]@aol.co.uk & call: [protected].

Knowing that this is too good to be true i actually called the number and some lady answered the ph (God knows where) with a "hello"??? Then she asked if i got a text to which i positively replied. She then advised me to send an email and they would email back.. The below is the text from that email. I will play the game with them to see where it goes. Note all the emails quoted are hotmail and aol freebies.

My husband received the same message on his mobile today (11/01/2010) which leads me to believe yes it is a scam gee if we won $2mil and you won $2 mil how many other people did too!

Its a scam don't reply don't do anything - JUST DELETE!
this is crazyyyyy i'm from belgium and i have just received the same message this morning:
congrat, your mobile number has just won you 2.000.000 in the welcome back promo for mobile phonefor claim email:[protected]@live.comor[protected]
first i was ecxited and i called them .i spoke with i man how told me that its real..and adviced me to send them an e mail..i did. but when i red they respons i was not sure that it was real.then i red all of these comment and now i am sure its a hoax...
thank u for your comment
sory for my bad english i'm better in french
My 71 year old mother received this and unfortunately she thought it was real and called me (daughter) and automatically I knew it was a hoax. I called them and threatened to call The Fraud police and refused to talk to me. We are from Australia and its not fair to do this to an elderley woman.
I got the text as well on 10/01/210 so i rang them up and some african dude answered the phone in a sleepy voice with hello sounded like i woke him up with my phone call dont quiet know what he said at first but then sounded like he realized i was calling about the promo and he started saying congrats to me about five time from than straight away i knew it was a scam so i think someone should find a way to get this guys!
I too got the same messag today andwhen I send the email then they have sent me the same confirmation letter . the same name Fedrik gold was mentioned but fortunatly i just search on the computer and got the same result they asked for the money first by western union .I dont know why they think the people will send them the courier fee first when they did not pay the advance money tobuy anything.
I also received this text message and would love to write back "get stuffed" but I doubt if anyone on the other end has the time to read that. They are too busy exhausting money from poor, guilible people. Scammers.
I would be very grateful if i will win $2, 000, 000usd
This is a bad game playing with innocent people i recieve a massage
On behalf of the management and staffs of freelotto, we officially congratulate you as the beneficiary of the cash prize o f $2, 000, 000 (Two million united state dollars)
