I received an SMS : Congratulations! Your cell no has won R145 000 in the Nokia Promotion 2012. Your Ref No: 01NK Contact Mr Williams on: 071 9432502 for your cash prize. I called the number, was asked to give my bank account number for a transfer. I subsequently received a SMS from a Mrs Botha, telephone number 071 422 0483, claiming to be the General Accountant for Nokia Promotions, and had to pay R3300 for insurance and transfer fees. I called this number to request the office number of her supervisor, and she gave me the following land line - 021 813 9655. When calling this number, the individual that answered was clearly not working for Nokia at all. Fortunately I did not pay any money, but was stupid enough to give them my banking details. I am now keeping a close watch on my accounts.
