Scam Description
Received text with this message “I’m Mr. Manuel Franco, the Powerball winner of $768 Million in Powerball Millions Jackpot, I’m donating to 200 random individuals. If you get this message then your number was selected after a spin ball. I have spread most of my wealth over a number of charities and organizations. I have voluntarily decided to donate the sum of $100,000USD to you as one of the selected 200, to verify your winnings kindly send a text to the agent number (925) 334-7423 David Gonzalez for the delivery of your winning.” I googled the name and saw this has happened as a scam before
