Winning money on promotions e.e. Cocacola & Nokia


We have received sms messages on our cellphones telling us that we have won large sums of money i.e. Cocacola Promotion was from a Mr Lawrence  his cell nr : 0786225688 prize money was R540 000 (unfortunately I deleted the Coca Cola sms) & Nokia Yearly Promotion - amount was R175 000 ticket nr 022b  and had to call a Mrs Smith on 0710589118 for the cash prize.  Have contacted Mr Lawrence he said he will phone back and I have contacted Mrs Smith and she told me it was a Nokia promo - I had to buy airtime to the value of R275.00 and then I had to sms the pin no plus my name plus my address and then I will have the cheque send to my address within 24hrs, and she also said the office was at 170 Main Str in Durban didn't give me the building name, office was on the second floor.  If this is for real - well wonderfull, but how can one establish if this is authentic or not.  She was not very obliging as I couldn't hear very well the reception wasn't good.  I am very weary of these type of sms messages.  I didn't divulge my name or address to the above people.  Thank you  Ria D
