Portents of the Year to Come

Though I do not seriously believe in astrology, I did note the prediction for the Rat for the Lunar Year during the Countdown programme. One piece of advice that was given was, "Be careful with money and investments, beware of scams".

Prophetically, at 6:10 am, not even 400 minutes into the new year, I received an SMS. The contents of the SMS are reproduced below:
Congratulations! Your mobile phone no.has won (GBP) 560, 000 pounds in the ongoing Nokia UK promo. For claims, call +44702407 & email: claimprize@europe.com
Thanks to celestial advice I will not be taking up this otherwise fabulous offer.

Text message to New Zealand from the UK number +46703958652.

"Congratulations from UK Lebara Mobile free promo. You have won 1.2m pounds, Email your name and mobile number to Lebaramobile37@live.co.uk or call +447024079882"

Won't be accepting that either, as it's from the same sub-number!
