Nokia Yearly Promotion 2013

Received an SMS from +27741294133 "NOKIA: you have won R475,000 in nokia yearly promotion Ref/no: 0229kp contact the agent Mrs Helen on 0710112236 f0r your prize" (the wording is EXACT). I contacted the number and was told to call back in 5 minutes to give time to verify the reference number. (not at all friendly and when i asked questions they were not answered). I called back after 5 minutes as requested and then I was asked whether I wanted to receive my price in my bank account or by cheque.  I confirmed cheque.  I was then asked to sms my delivery address to 0710112236.  At this point I checked the internet and found that this is an old scam.  I contacted Nokia telephonically on 08611665421.  I did not make a selection and there is a pre-recorded message confirming that Nokia was not involved and their name was being used without their permission.  I then called the 0710112236 number back again and asked for the head office of the promotion company.  I was given 0110754259.  I contacted this number and a not so clever man answered with Hello – no polite telephone etiquette one would expect from a promotional company.  I asked if this was a scam, my question was ignored and the phone was put down.  I called back again – no answer.  I then called the 0710112236 number back again and it went straight to voice mail.  I recon this is a scam!!!

    Also received twice an sms, first Saturday 25 Aug 2013 and now again 26 Aug 2013. Sms states" Congratulation! Your sim card has won R450000 in our NOKIA YEARLY PROMO 2013: Ticket no DF77dc, for activation and claim call MR MARk on 0782687064. I know this is just scam, but I phoned and a Mr Mark did answer, but so unprofessional. He asked me my claim nr and said I must phone back in 5 min. Dont understand if this was a real thing why I must phone back , but I did. He asked my Cell nr again and said yes this nr is the correct nr for the claim. Then he asked for my bank details and I said I dont have one, where he said you must go and open an account. I asked to speaked to his line manager whereby he said I must phone 0747839844, I then asked whats his managers name where he dropped the phone. I tried now several times to phone back but the line stays engaged. This is scam, please people dont give your details to them.

    I received my SMS on 26 June from number 0813643446 advising my R175000 winnings and to call Mrs Helen on 0737905992. I called from my land line and was told that her name is Helen (not her surname) She told me to phone back in 5 minutes so that she could look up my reference. I told her this was a scam. She swore at me and told me to "save my energy for somebody else."

    hi. I also got the same sms, some people are so easily fooled by this, im not one of them.

  • Botha 24 Jun 2013, 09:25 AM

    I also received an sms this morning from Mr Williams with nr 076 511 6398, the sms nr to contact for your prize of R95000.00 and to contact my claim agent Mr Williams at 072 352 3876 or 011 0519404 and my winning ticket nr TTTx - Ja right how stupid do they think I am. Please I don't even have a Nokia phone, and I don't even entered any competitions. Don't under estimate my intelligence I can get so furious if people sending scam sms don't they have anything better to do. If you need money go and work for it like we all do. One thing that I want to know have anyone been to a cellphone shop over the weekend or during the week for maybe repairs of sim swop of enquiries about your phone. Maybe it is just coincidence but the previous time I went for a sim swop I received a fraud sms just a day or day later that I win R150000.00 of the Nokia promotion. It is just funny because I took my cellphone in on Saturday morning for repairs and now I received another scam sms.

  • ANATHI 21 Jun 2013, 11:27 AM
