    I received an sms with the Nokia scam today. If this scam has been running for so long why is it that no one is doing anything about it. where are they getting our cellphone numbers and that we are using Nokia from? unless someone from service provider is selling our details.

The sms came through Sunday morning 06:35. Never called, but found 'report a crime' on the web with simmilar scams. Also cannot find any awards promo on the nokia website.

  • Greg Brink 12 Oct 2011, 08:18 AM

    The cell phone companies dont want to stop this crime. They are the BIGGEST criminals in SA. They have the RICA details of every cell number in the country. They could cancell the phone if they wanted to. They also wont blacklist stolen phones. They obviously promote crime. Cell phone theft is the biggest crime in SA and they dont care. They are a monopoly and there is nothing you can do.

  • srini 6 Oct 2011, 09:26 AM

A uneducated African man, can be a Nigerian, answered the phone and asked for my banking details and that I need to call him back in 1 hour. Can't this be stopped?

  • Mandy20 6 May 2011, 08:53 AM

    I have just received a similar sms from "Nokia" saying that I have won R95 000.00. The sms was sent from 0765105536 and the no I had to call was 0712750805. On calling I could hear how uneducated this African individual was with all the AHHHH and eishes and immediately I realised that this was a scam. When I pressed him for answers, he ended the call.

  • backlash 12 Apr 2011, 10:22 AM

    Come on people. You get nothing for free. Its greed and ignorance that entices folks to go for this. Any sms that claims you have won something or an sms requiring you to reply is a recipe for disaster. Please delete it immediately.

The person called himself Wiliams. The number to call is 0710822358.I called the number and before talking to wiliams I have already feeling that it was a scam. after talking to wiliams he suggest that i have to call him back after verifying my cell number on the system. when calling back, he confirm that i am the winner and also asked me if i do want the money to be transfered or by check. i suggested check. he confirm that i have to buy an airtime of r180-00, call back and give him the pin number, the r180-00 is the admin cost and all calls to the bank. i laugh it off..

    I just receive the following: "Your cell no was Generated During T-Mobile promotion award Held in UK and has won you R500,000,00 cash ref:0116n.call Mr. James Brown 0760776433 for your Prize." I phoned him to get the scam details. He said he need to check the system. I phoned him back later and ask what is the companies registration number and He said that it is a new company in SA and they create awareness. They can send the money via courier or Bank transfer. When I asked him where did the company get the number from he said it is network scanning and then the phone was put down. All the same comments as previous scams.

    Firstly, I had no idea this scam has been running for so long! (my wife got the Nokia yearly promotion msg last night) secondly, I can't believe that there are people out there who fell for this! As for bitching about Nokia or MTN doing something abou it, what are they going to do? How do you trace a prepaid number? (I'm assuming it's prepaid - as that's what I would do...) maybe Carte Blanche? At least more people will kniow what to look out for, and the douches who run this racket might get less response, which will get them to move on... THe problem is that the more people fall for it, the less reason they have to stop.

  • Unknown 17 Nov 2010, 07:37 AM

He does not sound South African ... the accent. Thanx to bloggers, my poor cousin would have bought this guy a telkom voucher.

    I received an SMS this morning at 06:06 am congratulating me that I have worn R250 000 and was given a Reference Nkza0166 their phone is 0736048988 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              0736048988      end_of_the_skype_highlighting. I sent them an SMS saying that was a bloody Nigerian sick scam like 914, and I was replied with "Fusek"! I called MTN and gave them that number because I believe since everyone was advised to RICA their phones these phones must be registered correctly with MTN. As it is clear these crooks are using MTN numbers something has to be done to stop these criminals from having access to our phone numbers.
