I just received this SMS this evening (see picture attached).I know it’s a scam, some receive it via email, some via SMS, but how many people actually believe this is real. If you make the mistake of replying to ask for more information, you’ll discover that you have to pay “taxes” or “transfer payments” or “bank fees” before the (imaginary) fortune can be delivered to you. And then if you make the bigger mistake of paying, the scammer will disappear with your money and you’ll never hear from him again.
