Nokia yearly promotion

The Incident

I received an sms stating: " Congratulations!!! Your cell number was among the lucky winners in the Nokia Yearly Promotion 2011/2012. You won R95 000, ticket number e109! Contact Mr Hazem your claims agent on 0838630096 for your cash prize. Thanks, the management."

I then phoned this person the following day who then told me to purchase 3 R200 telkom vouchers and send him the pin numbers for these vouchers as well as my bank account number.

I then smelled a rat. I did not do as he asked. He then poned me once again, asking whether I have done so and insisted on me to keep this a secret!

I told him I thought this is a scam and he assured me that it was not and he then sent me the following: "My personal details - Mr Abbey.D Hazem. ID # 6304115357089. Employee #: D422-007. Company- Nokia Yearly Promotion Centre. # 106 Long street Cape Town. Reg # D04-6675.

I then googled this and found that this is indeed a scam!!!

A guy just sms's my friend at work he won, and i have received many before so i know its a scam. we did it to push and see how far we can go with this. he eventually sent us an sms saying we have to buy him airtime of R180 so he can transfer the money. We called him and she said to him that she will not give him any airtime, because "she won the money now" He told her: "Don't you be rude, I am old enough to be your father - you are disqualified" LOL

I received the same type of message today @ 07.00hrs that i have won R250.000 in nokia yearly promotion Ref/no010np call 0712684375 for activation & claim. As an I.T person who is well aware of cybercrime and all that, my instinct led me straight to researching about this promo and to my suspicion i only found out that its a true scam. Something has to be done ASAP before many fall for this.....

Hi Everyone- I would like to report a misconduct, criminal activity scam with Pastor Donavan Daniels in springs Johannesburg ( cell number : 0735414489- this so called Indian Pastor has scammed many people of their hard earned money- from experience in 2010 my husband and I met Donavan- thinking he was a man of God, he told us about how he could assist us with business proposals and the application of funding, trusting him as he talked a good game- we submitted a file that my husband and I had worked very hard to put together- he told us he would need a R7500 to start on this- so we deposited- trusting him, meeting with his family, even invited him to dedicate my 01 year old child at my home- 03 months- 06 months 1 year down the line still nothing- he has not produced anything- he keeps lying- says he is waiting for some money to come through- needless to say its 2012 and I am still waiting! we have made numerous of phone calls to him- emails etc went to his house- he keeps saying today tomorrow, which never comes! He is still practising as a pastor in springs johannesburg. this man is a crook a theif and a liar! and not to be trusted!

I got the same message yesterday, saying Congratulations you have won R95 000 on the network draw, ref 1306N and to call Diana on 0715223024, so I phoned her to hear that I must give my ref nr and phone again in 5 min, when I phoned back she asked me how I would like my money cheque or cash so I said cheque because I didnt want to give my bank details and also thought it was a scam. She then said I must sms my full name and the ref nr and my address to her and phone back, I then did it and when I phoned back there was no answer. What can they do with my address and name?? I am renting so I'm not financially lined to my place. Im very scared now!

This scam is getting serious and a lot of people fall into the trap. Received sms from 0729971497 on 3rd January 2012 @ 17:00:02 reading "Your Cell no. Has won R195.000.00 and E72 Nokia Cell Phone in Nokia 2012 Promo with Pin No. NK22 call Mrs Roselyn Jacobs on 0793436339. Upon calling her she asked me to call in 5 minutes whilst varifying my pin. Indeed I called and she asked whether I would like my winnings deposited in my banking account. I am of the opinion that these white collor thugs must be tracked down by Govt and Nokia as a brand must not allow its image to be tarnished.

Received the following sms from the number : 0723168170, said the following : "Dear Customer! CONGRATULATIONS... You have won R95,000 on the Network Draw. Reference number is 1306N. Call Pamela on 0715223024 from 8am to 5pm to claim. T&C's apply. It then follows on to the phone call and the request me to buy 2 X R110 Vodacom Vouchers from where i become very skeptical already! However, i seem to be persuaded by that big number R95,000! I mean really what is R220 when u can have R95,000! So i give the numbers and they say they will contact me @ around 4:30pm(the time was about 2pm,) I eventually received the call @ about 6:20pm where an African lady recites my Pin Voucher Numbers aswell as Banking details and so forth, she then tells me that someone will call me the next day to confirm the payement however, just before it all seems to be 4real, they ask me for R2400 for Insurance fees and i must deposit it into their account.. I just laughed and put the phone down.. SERIOUSLY these people deserve to be in prison where they can pay for their evil ways!

Received an sms this morning at 4:02 am from 0799873434 "Congratulations your cell number has won R95 000 in our nokia promo. Your ticket no. nkza0166. Call Ms Lilian on 0785089409 to claim your price from 8am to 5am" The word "prize" wasn't even spelled correctly. I tred calling this Ms Lillian to check the scam out but surprisingly got voicemail when I dialled from another number. By the number of posts ad comments on this wall it appears these fraudsters are getting off scott free if the amount of cases has grown since Jan this year.

I have won R295 000!!!! I know this should be a scam, but wanted to know how they operate.... If you call the number as stated on the sms, the ask for the ref no and ask you call back in 5 min. I phoned back in 10 min. Then it is confirmed that you won, and you should buy a prepaid telkom voucher for R200 and sms the number of the voucher back to them. Your prize check will then be delivered to your door within 24hrs. It was also a Chris at the no: 073 936 4142 and the sms was send from 076 130 3417. Can they not be caught? It is a shame that these criminal keeps getting away with it and the honest people in SA keeps being the target!!

I also received an sms this morning 25/10 claiming I am a winner. Received from 0792739814, requested I call Miss Norma on 0838967069. (Did not call either of these people). All I want to say is "People, be smart, if you haven't entered a competition, and if you don't even own a Nokia, why would you entertain this?" I agree with all the above comments regarding RICA and our privacy ... you have to wonder!!!

I received a message on my new sim card telling me that my sim no won R95000 and a Nokia E72 in the Nokia promotion. The message came from 0790526318.The message said I should call Mr A Ngobeni on 0731486325. I have heard about these scams and called to check. The man on the other side responded and told me about the prize. I asked him if he was from Nokia and he agreed. His tone does not fit the name Ngobeni. I dismissed him when he wanted my address. I told him I was not interested.

R 250,000 in Nokia Yearly Promo ticket no DF6621 - call Mr. Martin Abolt on 073 561 8722. - Just called them and spoke to an uneducated, mildly literate neanderthol who could hardly pronounce his own name - figured it best to just hang up rather than waste my oxygen - i hope someone catches these bastards.
