I received a text thanking me for my business. When I clicked the link it said that I had won a TV. After taking a survey and told me that I have to pay shipping for the TV and asked for my information. Is this a scam?

If it seems to be good to be true, it probably is. It sure sounds like a scam to me.

I've got a better offer - I'll send you a bigger TV.   You'll just need  to pay shipping charges so send me your credit card number.

Don't forget to follow the steps to forward the spam to our spam team. We're always looking for more examples so we can protect you better.

I received below text about an hour after a call to T-Mobile Support.  Their system must be infected with malware giving out our phone numbers after contacting them.  Note the TS before Mobile.

 

 

these are being delivered through the T-Mobile cellular network. Very disappointing that these scams can’t be filtered out.

Over the past week I am getting at least one or more per day of these messages via SMS.

I too have received the same SMS text message about a T-Mobile survey for a $100 credit several times recently with a code number and a hot link. All I do is delete it and block the number. It's not a legitimate T-Mobile offer so don't fall for it.

I got it today.

I got a message to take a survey and WIN a prize. Oddly enough, I just left a T-Mobile store 15 minutes prior to that. I did the survey and it said I can have ear buds for just 5.00 shipping. I used my c card and received them. Then on my next c card statement had a charge for .44.95. I contacted the go that sent them. They said I didn’t read the fine print that I had to return them in 17 days or less or be charged. WHAT THE HECK IS THE PRIZE?  To buy 5.00 ear buds for 44.95. This is screwing the general public. I will do everything I can to fix this b s. They use the T-Mobile colors so I thought it was legit. Stupid for thinking that.
