I have won JACKPOT! So what??!

Almost everyday I am used to receiving emails and at times text messages stating that I won this and that. It was so surprising that I won those things when in fact I have not engaged myself to joining such never-heard before contests. Just this morning I received an SMS from a certain man who called himself as Dir. Alvib Ayala of Phil. Com. Center. Here are the exact words . . .
 "Congratulations! U have won php300k+Starex Van ur sim # as a homepartner last mar. 26, 2012.For info call ds #0932*******"
Here are still some of the letters I received thru electronic mail:

Of course my instinct was telling me not to believe such scam as obviously they do look like one. I am not gullible to easily believe winning  big sum of money and car too! I can't be easily lured or be dazzled with those earthly things not unless I do remember getting myself into such program or contest.  My goodness gracious! How do these people manage to do such pure insane lies and taking advantage of technology? One thing is for sure, they are someone who deceives others for their own gain so better study every bit of information they are giving and asking from you. Never fall on their trap! And it pays to share to help warn everyone around you. Always do our part in helping making this place a better world to live in! Stop SCAMMING!
