What to do if we receive the SMS?

If we receive an SMS like this or another in which they assure that we have won a prize from Sony, or the lottery, or any other type of gift, the best thing to do isdelete it We directly delete the SMS and omit it, since we have not participated or won any raffle.

We must be wary of these communications that we have not requested and even more so if they come from numbers as strange as this one, which is aforeign number (+44 7812 277209) Likewise, the emails do not have any special domain, but the cybercriminal uses the Google email service, Gmail.
