Possible scam?
I received a text message from mygiftcardsnow.com

It said I won a $1000 visa gift card. Has anyone heard of this? I have to fill out a form for them to send me card to me. It seems shady and the fine print Is a bit confusing. Anyone else get text message alerts? I have not entered I yet, I wanted to check. Thanks.

I figured. I assume a legit notification would not be in the text format correct?

Yes, wins can be in Text format.there is a lot of scam out there. Just keep trying, and if you don,t know just post, and we will let you know. Better safe than sorry. Many of those scams have a virus. Others just want your ID. GL.

Clue - anything that starts with "my" is usually a scam.
