This is an information harvesting scam. I got a text to my cell phone from a similar number 571-228-1056) claiming that I have won a $1000 Walmart Gift Card and a web site with a code. Went to the site (hxxp://prize-patrol.net/walmart) to see what the scam was, and when you enter the code GIFT it just starts asking for more information.

One thing it says is, When you receive text spam, forward it to short code SPAM (7726) from your wireless device. There is no charge to report mobile spam. Messages forwarded to 7726 do not count toward your data usage or voice package.

Is this a scam? I received a text message telling me I won a $1000 gift certificate from Wal-Mart.
