Nokia Bonanza

I was not a victim, but would like to warn people out there of someone by the name of Amanda who is a so called agent for the 2011 Nokia Bonanza. They tell you your cell number has won. Give you a cell number to call to claim the thousands you've won. I was given Amanda's cellphone number which is 0784399336 - this people defraud other people - tell you t that you have won R150, 000.00 or more. They ask for your banking details and personal information. Beware of this scam. Don't get ripped off.

    Got the same sms and clled the number from a land line. Amanda aked me to call her back from my cellphone as they need to verify that it is the correct number who wants to claim a prise. she claims her company is based in Kesington Cape Town but refused to give any further details... These "AGENTS" must think all cellphone users are DUMB!

    I also got the same sms. Why do these people still exist and keep sms'ing us. I mean there should be a law that protects us from these scams.
