I believe it might be true cause I've never hear of a spam txt on a phone before i done research on the trellis to see if it were true but I've only seen email spam so i curious enjoy i won?Answers: nope. sorry. its spamNo. It's spam. A lottery is something you enter by choice.
Also, I've notice it says you have to scan a copy of your government idenitification, i.e. a passport. They probably want to clone your details for fraud.If you send off this application (which will no doubt hold personal details) and a copy of your identification, they can steal your identity and cause you a world of pain. They can hold out loans in your name and leave you surrounded by a lot of trouble.
You say that you did some research and it mentions email spam? Well, you eventually got an email didn't you? I pray to god that you haven't done anything further.
This is a scam and you will not receive money. You don't bring back enter into any lottery without being asked, and usually you have to clear something to enter. The email itself is so poorly written it screams spam!
Delete it immediately.
EDIT: You can try ringing the police and ask if its reportable. There might not be anything they can do about it. Related Questions:
