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.
