SMS from 92312

Wey hey, I'm €950,000 richer! An O2 promotion that I never entered in the UK is going to pay me the guts of a million euros (rather than sterling for some odd reason), and charge me CHF0.20 for the privilege.

Between CHFs, £s and €s, any budding treasury manager could do worse than get their CV to these people. Or indeed anyone with a basic grasp of punctuation, treasury ambition preferred but not required.

Clearly a scam lest anyone else is on the receiving end of a similar SMS.

You spend lawyer time for CHF 200 / Hour, where you get good advices, you should better just forget it. The faster you can get convinced, the smaller his bill.

Me too!
And rumors of my wealth must be spreading around, because when I don't get lottery-winning emails, I get emails from women who found my email somehow, fell instantly in love with me and wants to marry me. I've got much more proposals from women than from men...

Re: SMS from 92312

92312 is a spammer! I get unsolicited SMS from them, too - try to imagine the contents...

If you want to be cancelled from their mailing list, follow the procedure which has been published by Ombudscom, the Swiss ombudsman for telecommunications disputes.
