Just received an SMS advising me that I was the winner of a “£1750000 in a prize draw”, that is not bad considering I do not live in the UK. Being the suspicious person that I am, I did some searching on the Internet and found this: Coke Promo Scam.
I was reading up on these type of scams and was amazed at how successful they are, we are talking about people giving millions of dollars to these low-life scum. The thing that I cannot understand is how anyone can fall for this? The scum ask for your personal details and then ask for money to pay fees and taxes – the first thing that would come to my mind would be “Pay the fees and taxes from the winnings”. It just so happens that just a couple of days ago there was story on TV about an old man who had been conned out of $50,000 by a similar scheme and he still would not believe that he had been conned.
I recently bought a new Android phone and thankfully Evernote was not pre-installed. It appears that Google & phone manufacturers (LG in my case) have learned their lesson and not included this corporate virus.
I had to change phones even thought my old one still functioned perfectly and had no damage, unfortunately it was only 3G and my service provider shutdown their 3G network so I had to get a 4G phone. I got a LG K10 with dual SIM cards. I wanted to use 2 SIMs one for personal use, the other for work but alas I cannot do that – the 2nd SIM port is basically useless it is 2G only and 2G networks have not been around for quite some time so what is the point of going to all the expense and effort to include a second SIM slot when it cannot be used? It turned out not to matter anyway as companies do not like you using their SIM in your phone – so now I have 2 phones.
