Scammed by Yahoo!

I got the following SMS earlier today...


"Your Phone Number: 965******* won $9500 in the Yahoo! 2007 Mail Flash. Winners contact mailprize@yahoo.com for free claims and delivery. www.yahoo.com"


According to this link it's nothing but scam. It all started with emails and now reached cellphones. The confusing thing, however, is that the sender id on my cellphone is Yahoo! Mail, that means Wataniya is aware of the sender's id and is most likely part of this despicable scam circle.

OR..
the person who sent it used one of the software tools and modified his/her name to "Yahoo Mail"..Its possible. I've tried it..but hey, I am not the one who sent it :P
