Yahoo Splash Prize?

I was listening to VOA show discussing the digital divide and stating how it is an socio-economic issue between countries that are wealthy and have a decent educational system and poorer countries with no access to educational resources.

I see the digital divide as a personal divide. Someone who needs access to information will make an effort to get it.

So today or tomorrow is the summer solstice. I seem to be getting different information Wikipedia puts summer solstice on June 21, sick yet Time and Date has it for June 22 with clear sunset and sunrise times of 4:49 AM 6:51 PM respectively.

So I guess we have two dates for this. Either way both days are going be long hot and sunny beyond belief.

Some people in my work have recieved an SMS stating:

Your Phone Number : 965XXXXXXX won $9500 in the Yahoo! 2006 Anniversary Gift Splash. Winner contact mailprize9@yahoo.com for FREE claim/delivery. www.yahoo.com

I dont know about you but this just screams scam. I did a search for yahoo anniversary gift splash and found some strange things on Answers Yahoo! One of which is this Where many people in Kuwait have seemed to receive the same SMS.

This is all very strange and odd. I never heard of this ever before, disorder
and strange so many people in Kuwait are getting this prize.

Anyone else getting these SMSes or know if it is a hoax or not?

  1. I saw those too, but neither is an official from Yahoo! and what proves those “answers” are not from the scammers themselves.

  2. I received the same message, after replying to email today I received Verisgn email regarding the name, address and phone number, have replied again, let see what happens?

  3. I too received a SMS informing of the Yahoo Splash Prize and that I should send registration to: customer.service002@yahoo.com for registration. I did then I received another one from: customer.service003@yahoo.com

    Then the third one from:
    verisign.service4@yahoo.com called Digital Notarization Service by VeriSign.

    Today the 4th one today saying “An error occured during your Digital Notarization by VeriSign┬«, this might be due to the content of your data or inappropriate format used in data submittion, carefully provide the correct information below again in the format shown and return via email to the VeriSign┬« Agent at the Yahoo! Corporate Headquarters: verisign.complete4@yahoo.com

    For security and personal identification purposes, a scanned copy of one of the following files/documents must be attached to the information provided

    3.International Passport

    This is when it got very fishy. Before I did not realize this because of the Yahoo and Verisign logos.

    I hope and wish YAHOO and VERISIGN reads this and replies or takes some actions.

    There are lots of people who received this message.

    Thanks for the time guys and girls.

    Heart

    PS: My personal email is: heartkwt@gmail.com in case I get a real and decent reply.

  4. Me too had received the same sms stating that i am among the 100 winners over the world which has won USD$8500.
    For your info,i am from singapore.Among the 100 names listed,none of it is from kuwait.I would like to thank you guys for the information shared.At least,now i know this is all faked..
    YAHOO please do something about it and i hope his will not happen in the future.

  5. 16th November received similar sms to above. Have replied to all seemingly official emails suscpicious of the colour of the Yahoo! log (purple not red) got suspicious when asked to send money to charity based in Nigeria before prize would be paid.
    Yikes these guys are good!

  6. Hi I’m from Lebanon
