I received a text from 917-562-5842 stating, "Your entry last month has Won! Goto http://PrizeBestBuy.com and enter your Winning Code: 5555 to claim your Free $1000 BesBuy Gift Card."

This sounds fake / extremely suspicious and when I checked Network Solutions WhoIs, the owner is some Chinese company - NOT Best Buy.

I also received a fake text message saying that I have received $1000 Best Buy gift card. I went to the website and gave my address and date of birth. Right before entering my credit card information, I checked this blog. Now, where can I send a complaint about it? I am afraid because I gave them my address and date bof birth, they might use my information and do identity theft.

Other numbers from which I received the messages are: 33716 and 1111487101
