NOKIA YEARLY PROMOTION


My Wife received the following SMS. I obviously do not expect Nokia to contact us like this and hence believe it is a SCAM and I would like to warn people about this when receiving a SMS similar to this one;
"Congratulation's you have won R160,OOO From NOKIA YEARLY PROMOTION.YOUR TICKET NO 2200kp. PLEASE CONTACT Miss Liziwe ON 0711096153. FOR YOUR CLAIM. N.Y.P."

    Good Day, I have also received the same SMS and it seems that they are "giving away" more now. This is a way to get to your bank account nuumber and please beware of the scam. Quickest way to check that the number in the SMS and where it was sent from is not the same and the other is the time it was sent (4:03am) Number sent from: (0714271249) Message stated (exactly as it is): Congratulations your No. is Among Lucky Winner u Won R250,000. From Nokia Yearly Promo. With Ticket No.0166p Call Miss Memory Dube For your Cash Price 0718043605 And my number is not published any where.

  • Crystal 30 Jan 2012, 03:11 PM

    I received a sms to-day informing me that my sim no. has won R650,000.00 in Nokia"s Annual Promo. Ticket No.066N. To phone Mr. Kenneth and to make sure my ticket No. is activated. Well, I did phone and was asked in which area I live and my cell No. then was asked to phone back in 5 min.to confirm. I have not phoned back as I got a feeling it was a scam. After googling this site I realised it definitely is. Thks for your support

  • Stacey5 12 Dec 2011, 09:11 AM

    NOKIA YEARLY PROMOTION is a scam, confirmed by NOKIA, VODACOM & MTN.

  • Zanele8 7 Nov 2011, 02:48 PM

    The same thing almost happened to me. Just before I went to the bank so I can get cash to deposit it, I thought I should google it and find out more. Turned out its a scam. They are dragging the names of reputable brands under the drain.They told me I had won 95 000 and I should deposit R 1400 before they can give me 95 000. Thanks to other people's comments I didn't do it. The guy's name is "Jansen" he sounds Nigerian and the lady is Vanessa. She has a dull voice and easily intimidated. I told them the cops are on to them.

  • nicky5 7 Nov 2011, 11:22 AM

    this morning my husband got a sms saying we won r95000.he must contact mrs.portia with our winning number.she say before claiming the prize he must buy 2times r110 vodacom vouchers.we didn't reacted and thought it it was a scam and they using nokia's name saying it is nokia's yearly promotion.they must catch these scammers!

  • ISAAC MNGUNI---JHB 2 Nov 2011, 07:47 AM

    At 03:09-this morning--02 NOV-2011 I was also cursed by this sms saying I've won R95000-it was obvious to me that its a scam.I DON'T use Nokia phone,the message is also not from my network operator,I did not play any competition with NOKIA or my network operator and that I must call a specific agent for ticket activation and claim on 078-982-6479-message sent from--0727112237--clear b/shit

  • Hannes Willemse 31 Oct 2011, 07:56 PM

  • Melbourne Australia 23 Oct 2011, 10:37 PM

    My husband got one yesterday morning saying he'd won 415,000GBP in the Nokia Ovi Promo. Was told to email: dpostal@ovi.com & call: 447035964313. Message was sent from: 41798073040. Message centre: 919821100006. Two strange things - it's the only Noka in the house out of about 6 mobiles (about 6 yrs old & very very basic) & the SMS cannot be forwarded.

  • Obakeng 19 Oct 2011, 08:48 AM

    I received the same email Mrs N. Gbalala on 0732409204. They're using the same method as that of the UK lottery or German Insurance scam. U wonder y this is springing up just after we're forced to 'RICA'.

    I have reveived an sms last knight saying that I have won R95000 and a Nokia E65 phone. My code is YX2 and I must contact Melesa on 078-8577774 and i did. They ask me if I want the money to be trasferred into my bank account or a cheque, so I said I want a cheque because I did not trust this. When I said I want a cheque they just ended the call. So be carefull they just want your bank details.
