$1000 Target Gift Card . . . yes, it's another scam

Last night, I recieved a text message that I won a $1000 Target Gift Card.

Yeah!  Christmas gifts for all!

But wait . . . it told me I had to click on the Target link and enter a five-digit code within the next 24 hours in order to claim it.

I thought, I have to . . . what?

Now, I fill out a lot of store surveys and I could've easily done one for Target.  But I don't recall ever entering my cell number.  Next step, Google!  Guess what I found?


Bottom line: if you get this kind of text message, delete it immediately.
