I have recieved the same msg from these scammers and thanks to my mobile line tracker that we use in the police investigation office. We can find out who these people are. Fraud by law is sentenced to 2years minimum and $500 thousand usd fine. But in london, in pounds!!! Thanks for your support and comments

Frauds a crime
My wife has received 5 of these txt's in the last 6 hours... All the same:

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

So we have sent a scam threat through to our government watcher... So anyone else from oz who gets this lodge it with Au
i too am in Australia and just got the same txt, right now i would love to ring their necks, we are in severe financial hardship, and messages like this are just plain cruel for us and many others i know. Hopefully the fraud squad will get them soon before someone does pay then.

Yes, I received sms to my mobile phone too. I am suspicious. Got the email from Freelotto confirming that it's not a hoax and to contact the agent. Have done so, but won't be sending any money to get my package sent. If it's a hoax it's pretty disappointing, but at least I won't be down $450!
omg i received the same txt today and im from sydney
I received same msg on phone about winning $2 000 000 usd, and thought it was a scam. I am from adelaide, and i thought i would play their little game. I questioned their truth in the matter and they sent me picture of certificate and passport and personal photo. It sounds like this is the same one that everyone gets if they question it. I thought i would pay the money just to see if it is true, as if it were it would be good, and if it wasn't well i would've lost $450. But after reading all this i now know it is a scam for real. Has anyone actually paid the money? And if so what has happened?
I have also received the same SMS and decided to play along in hope of getting some info useful to the police.
When I got the email telling me it was part off Free Lotto I almost fell for it. Free Lotto is a real company and is part of PlasmaNet Inc. They have been running for the past 10 years.

I sent an email to the real Free Lotto to check it out. I'll post their reply.
Here is the reply from FreeLotto.
