340w ago - Thousands of young people have been sent fake scam text messages by the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) to warn them about con-artists.

The campaign saw 25,000 mobile phone users aged between 18 and 24 receive a message telling them they might have won £1,000 in cash.

But a second message arrived soon after informing them that the message was a fake and warning them about scams.

The OFT estimates that 6% of scam victims are aged between 16 and 24.

The Information Commissioner's Office provided the OFT with numbers of 25,000 young people who have opted to receive marketing text messages.

As part of the OFT's Scams Awareness Month campaign, it sent texts to all these numbers on Friday.

The text reads: "Urgent! U may have won £1k cash with '2 Good 2 B True'."

A second text followed shortly afterwards that made clear that there was in fact no prize, and that it was simply a warning about scams.

New service

The message also highlighted SMSus, a new text message service from PhonepayPlus, the body which regulates services bought by phone. This allows users to text details (to 76787) of a premium rate number or shortcode they are suspicious about.

An automatic reply lists the cost of the number, details...
