British Telecom (BT) Tower
This stalwart tower keeps London talking and is seen as both a monstrous blot on the skyline and a wonder of modern engineering. Whatever your opinion, with the majority of the city's mobile phone and internet usage controlled from this modern communications hub, formerly the Post Office Tower, it's essential for London life. The 540ft skyscraper with its huge, mushroom-shaped satellite dishes was the country's tallest building until the mundane NatWest tower eclipsed it in 1981 and can be viewed from far and wide. Unfortunately, following a bomb attack in 1971, the tower and its revolving penthouse restaurant are no longer open to the public. But its still worth taking a peek at if you're in the area - let's face it, you could hardly miss it. Oh, and by the way, its dark colour is not a result of car fumes, but is due to its tinted anti-sun glass.
Congrats! Your Phone No has won 550,000 poundsin the on going BT-UK INT'l Phone No Draw in UK.
Yeah! Right! what sort of a scam is this & how did they get my number IN aUSTRALIA? They want me to claim the prize by emailing BTELECOMMS@LIVE.CO.UK/+447045788673
Well this morning I too received the text message saying "Congrats! Your phone No. has won 550,00 pounds in the ongoing BT-Telecoms int'l phone no. draw in UK, To claim email: firstname.lastname@example.org"
I had another friend receive a similar text message about 1 month ago. The phone number that it's sent from is international.....I hate spam in my e-mail account.... I just hope my phone number is not hit with it too now.
I just want to write this for anyone else who is looking up to find information about this "so called" win of 250,000 pounds from "BT-Telecoms Int'l phone" for their Xmas draw. I live in Australia so why would I be winning a prize from England? How do these scammers get our phone numbers? You can phone the fraud squad in your area - we've done it before because of a very well done fraudulent letter we received from Emirates (which they confirmed was fraudulent). There isn't much that the Fraud investigators can do via all this modern technology these scammers use but it's worth a try. This is the first time I've gotten one of these via my phone - I usually get emails. PLEASE DO NOT PAY HEED TO THEM! They are FRAUDULOUS! Think about it - surely they wouldn't just send you a txt message asking you to do something for that amount of money! They would PHONE you personally and organize advertising about it - because to win that much money is a big deal! They'd want to advertise what they are doing to EVERYONE to show how generous and wonderful they are! DON'T BE FOOLED! In their communications you'll often notice a lot of spelling errors - that is a dead give away. It is so cruel to do this especially to people of little financial means - a ray of hope that they've won something like that. But don't be fooled into giving them any money so that they can "release" the so called funds. No one - rich or poor deserves to be duped like that.
I received the same e-mail saying I won 250,000.00 pound, I received weekly from 3-5 of these various fraud e-mails, this year alone I've won a (fraud) combined total of well over several billion dollars.
Isn't there an e-mail or personal info that a person can enter to forward them to i.e.- the FBI so they can be traced and trapped.
