I received an sms from +27(82)4721103 as follows:Congratulation!!!Your number was among the Lucky winners of R150,000.00 from Nokia yearly promotion ref no. 010KP. Call 0718387583 to claim your prize. I immediately suspected a scam and called to satisfy my curiosity. The call was answered by a black male, who would not give me his name, but did say he was a claims advisor based in Nokia Bloemfontein. He further stated that i have till 12:00 noon today to foward my I.D. number and banking details to qualify for immediate payment of the prize money of R150,000.00!! On googling this i find that this scam has been going on for some time now. Why is there nothing been done to curb this?
