    Same problem.. Also received an sms Nokia promotion winner of 95 000 on the 29th July 2013. And then on the 30th July 2013 you have to pay a sum of R 1570 to claim the money. These people should know that God Almighty sees this. These people think they have a right to scam people that work hard for their salaries. There will come a day when these people will be scammed by their own.

    Well, the scam artists are working hard. I also got the sms today that I had won R475,000 Nokia yearly promotion. Contact Mrs. Helen on 0781739362. Sadly for me I did call her and she told me to go buy R180 airtime and call her back. I thought sure, if anything I get to keep the airtime. But no they steal it when you call back and they ask you for the voucher number and then the pin. I asked if I could load the airtime onto my phone and she said, NO. As that happend I realized that I was taken for a ride. So sad that people lie ad steal from us when our country needs for us to unite.

    Just received a sms from a Sonia Owen at Nokia saying I won R150,000. in a global nokia promotion. Contact the cell number to claim. When I called she confirmed the details to me and then said do I want payment via the bank or courier. I said courier and only gave my address with no surname. She said she would confirm by resending an sms. So far no sms received.

    I also received the same sms on monday 20 Feb 2012 only the claim agent was a Mr. Williams on cell no 0826613378 and ticket number TTTX. Have not called the number. People should know if they have themselves entered any competition and if you have to pay money to get money it will be a scam.
