Orange Mobile promo says: "we intend to sensitize the public"


Hello, I am Miss Young. I received this story from a friend. Let me call her Linda.

If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage to read more about 419 fraud.

 

Hi Miss Young,

I have contacted local police and send information about mails I have received. I have got an answer that i should only delete mails.

But, I feel so sad, because i know that there is lot of people who really want to belive that they have won something and then maybe loos their money, menthal healt or something for sure.

I got first sms where was information that my cell number has won some money from the company: Orange telecommunications. Of cource (?) I thought that it could be possiblpe that I have somehow won something , just few hours earlier i was talking to my friends to foreign countries. So I send e-mail to given address and asked what does message mean.

Quite soon I got message (and again message).

Whole message chain I have again posted to police, but haven't got answer yet.

If you can do something to warn other people I'd be very happy.

Linda.
