Received a text message claiming "Your entry last month has WON! Go to TargetContests.com and enter your winning code 36273 to claim your free $1000 Target gift card within 24hrs". This seemed like a fraudulent claim as I do not usually things like that. I did a quick Google search of Target Contests and came up with a very helpful article on Yahoo! News, http://news.yahoo.com/scambook-warns-consumers-target-contests-scam-093033889.html, that led me to this scambook. Is there anything that can be done about these text messages?
