    And i won R195 000 but no laptop. Luckily i googled the promo first! a guy with a french type accent tried to convince me to forward all my detail, numbers that was given to phone 083 373 7250 as well as 081 256 8135. I was told it was a promotion sponsered by Nokia.....turned out Nokia posted a site to warn people against these guys
