    I received an sms(9/5/14) from nokia promo saying I should phone Rachel (0842349672) to claim the money that I won. To claim this money she said I need to buy airtime of R275. Is this true

    I have just received the same message today 29/08/2013. R295,000 and it comes from Mrs Lisa 071 914 5650. Obviously a scam. How do these people get one's cell numbers?

He told me to send an sms to this number with my address and information to claim my prize and then call him back to confirm if he received the text. Then he said Nokia Finance dep. Will call me to release the prize. A lady called Mrs.Botha called me and said that the I should pay a amount for the courier to deliver my prize. She sms me their bank details: Secretary Acc/Name: Bo. Crouse , Acc/No: 1343987359 , Bank: Capitec , Fax/No: 0867713015. I realized this is a scam and did some research on google and found this.
