    All,

    Received an unusual message in my notification bar today. It had a teal star symbol next to it and it was entitled "your Droid bionic has been selected to receive xx$" I believe it was 200.00 but it disappeared when I attempted to view it.

    Hoping there isn't any spyware or virus on my phone.

    Any suggestions?

    You've installed something that has permissions to put ads in your notification bar. I find this to be super annoying, myself, but it's relatively harmless.

    Oh, you didn't actually get selected for money. :p

    Haha, yeah. And the annoying thing is you can't remember what app it is! :p I have the same problem every once in a while! Have no idea what app is doing it to me though! xD

    I had the Austin City Limits app on my phone last week, it added a notification in the bar but when I selected it to view it just took me to the app which had no information. So I agree with the app theory.
