Received this: Congratulations! Ur sim no won R150,000 & nokia E72 in our nokia promo with ref no ZNK012 for claims call miss Caroline on 0724618556 for ref activation thank u - Are these people dumb or are there really some even dumber people out there that will believe this scam? Nokia will never write their brand name without capital N!! And also "Ur" in stead of "Your".. Obviously a scam!
