Scam


I received an SMS that I won R250 000 in the NOKIA YEARLY PROMOTION with ticket number.. The SMS was sent from 081 237 2282 and I had to phone 081 738 3551. I spoke to Abraham, at the Nokia call centre, according to him. He instructed me to go to any Shoprite or Checkers and buy R278 worth of airtime to activate the number. Then I had to phone 081 738 3551 again and give my ticket number, ID number and address if I wanted the money sent by cheque, or give me banking details for immediate deposit; it I preferred the cheque it would take three working days for it to reach me. /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin-top:0cm; mso-para-margin-right:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:10.0pt; mso-para-margin-left:0cm; line-height:115%; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin;}
