Nokia yearly promotion

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

  • tshepiso13 19 Oct 2012, 12:13 PM

    Received sms this mrng, funny enough they send you sms and when you call them they ask for your cell phone number, and she goes on bullshitting sayoing i need to activate my ticket number by buying R110 vodacom etym and after buying the etym i shud call her and give her the pin so that she can activate it, really now" how desparate can one be. Fools, NOKIA NEEDS TO STEP UP AND SO SUMTHING BEFORE THEY LOOSE BUSINESS.

  • unknown19 26 Sep 2012, 08:54 AM

    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!

  • angel 21 Sep 2012, 03:56 PM

    Hi I received the same message" your cell number was randomly selected on the Nokia Promotion- You won R95000 Ticket Number: 0166P call Mrs Lerato on 0783267783-Are these people really stupid to think people would give them their bank info and purchase vouchers! SAPS what constructive action are you taking in regards to this?

  • Username2492 14 Sep 2012, 09:37 AM

    Hi. I too received this SMS, was told to call back in 10 minutes, lol. I knew this guy was full of BS, so I called back, as he was saying to me that he told me to call back in 10min, I told him "but I think you are lying, this is a scam" and he drops the phone, lol. They and their scams are so pathetic.

    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!

  • Ina9 6 Jan 2012, 09:02 AM

    I have received this sms this morning.."Congratulations!!! Your mobile number has won the sum of R250 000 in 2012 Nokia promo with Ref No SA3420NP. Contact Mrs. Clara on 072 498 0320 for your prize" I couldn't believe I have never won anything. I wanted to make sure this promo is real as I have never heard about it, so I google it...then I came across this "Report a Crime". Please could somebody contact these people as Nokia is getting very bad publicity...!!

  • Bra Les 4 Jan 2012, 09:11 PM

    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.

  • Lomé 13 Dec 2011, 12:48 PM

    I recieved the same sms this morning, I'm sick of this scam I have recieved at least 5 sms saying similar things. the info on todays sms read as follows : Congradulations!

  • Nomolos 5 Dec 2011, 09:48 PM

    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!

    Nokia should step up and take responsibility for this. They see it as free advertising and i am getting tired of Nokia's lay back attitude. 0827246048 and 0837341878 is the numbers used to contact me with their sick scam. Nokia take action or pay up.

  • EPV 3 Nov 2011, 09:49 AM

  • Shannon4 2 Nov 2011, 11:13 AM

    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.

  • Willa Frahm 2 Nov 2011, 10:07 AM

    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!!

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.

I phoned him back and said....dude, what the hell, do you think people are stupid? So yeah, the number is 0739364142. Please report this fool! Some nigerian guy thinking he can steal everyones money...dumbass!

  • Riaan20 3 Oct 2011, 01:50 PM

    Hey there guys. My mom recieved an sms also about the yearly "promo" that nokia has. I called Chris at 073 936 4142.....he wanted R 200 telkom vouchers and my bank account details (Its an empty one I may add).... Ok I paid this and send it to him just to see what was going to happen next. Next message I got was to say that the money was insured (great cause I don't wan't it to fall into the "wrong" hand) Come on..... haha... any way and that it can't be transfered without the "clearance certificate". In order to obtain this I had to pay in R2.520(this was the actual spelling) is'nt a company suppose to have proffesional people? I had to call Mrs Howard at 071 983 5000. So ye I lost R200 big deal but these people needs to be stopped. Like Simon and a few others said....What the hell is RICA for then?

  • Christy 30 Sep 2011, 03:28 PM

    i am highly angry now cause i would have loved to recieve the R250000 i was told i had won but reading these comments has opened my eyes. watch out for an 0714499542 number and a 0734600651 number. what jerks

  • Alice3 28 Sep 2011, 12:52 PM

    I got the SMS this morning congratulating me on winning R95000 and a nokia E65 for the nokia yearly prpomotion, giving me my pin and told me i could claim all this by calling MRS. TANDILE on 0739419552... at first all u think about is how nice it would be to have that sort of money plus a new phone to go with it, RIGHT? so i called but no answer, so i had a doughty kinda felling BUT i called again, "hello this is (can't remembr his name) how can i help"... OBVIOUSLY this was all a scam.. firstly: NO compony should miss a call during day time! secondly: you should be aswering ur custermor call with the compony's name in it... thirdly: I din't even speak to Tandile, i spoke to her 'boss'...?????????? so there's ur top 3 clue to a scam! PLEASE BE VERY VERY VERY CAREFUL! :)

  • Pierre Joubert 28 Sep 2011, 10:39 AM

  • Simon4 28 Sep 2011, 09:14 AM

    I complained bitterly about the Rica laws invading my privacy but I was told they are necessary to protect us from criminals yet here we see blatant crime using none other than cell phones and this scam has been operating since 5th January according to the comments so where are the police and where is Rica? Can someone take Rica to court for bullshooting the public and who in the police department must be fired first? Maybe I missed something but from info on this site this crime has been happening for nine months and it's ongoing because I got just such an SMS this morning. HOLY COW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lyndal 27 Sep 2011, 09:49 AM

    I received another sms on the same morning, saying Congratulations!!, your cellphone number has won R250 000,in NOKIA 2011 PROMO DRAW.Ref No, 0193Np.pls call Mrs phumza on 0786630132 for your cash prize.8am-4pm . the suspect thing is that they are sending the sms from a number 0728397794 but telling you to phone a different number all together to claim your prize.... Normally there should be a landline number or something that can assist us in believing it is not a scam. The other thing I would love to know is how do these people get our phone numbers and what the hell did we all have to rush and rica for if they are not going to even assist us with these things. Does anyone know how to contact Rica so that we can trace these numbers and get these people caught???

  • Bernice2 27 Sep 2011, 09:30 AM

    My husband also received the sms - he won R95000 and must phone Mr Morgan. Mr Morgan then asked me to sms him my name, postal address, ticket number and the pin number for a R200 Telkom voucher to enable him to activate the prize. They really do underestimate most people's intelligence - hallo wake up please not everyone is as stupid and uninformed as you idiots!

    I received this sms on Thursday 22 September at 01h04am. The sms came from 079 0526318 saying "Congratulation" your sim no won R95000 and Nokia E72 phone.InNokia promotion, your ref no is ZBH061. Call A.Ngobeni on (0731486325) for activation and claim. I phoned the number today and quoted my ref number, they make me sit on the line for about 5 minutes while they are confirming the ref no and then they come back to the phone saying "yes I see you have won R95000 and E72 cell phone, they will send me my cellphone via couriers will reach me tomorrow to which ever address I want it to be sent to. I had to sms them my banking details and my work address, with my name and they will fill in the form for my application and for my phone to be sent to me, only after sending that sms did I start smelling a rat, so I phoned the same cellphone number off of a landline (work phone) and the guy that answers just says hello, doesn't say Nokia Promotion as he did when I phoned from my cellphone.... this is now when I realize that this is a scam...... I hope they don't try anything funny with my bank account details... The number they are currently using is 0731486325 please watch out for this number on your phones.....

Erm, Yeah right. I'm sure nokia is going to have their marketing department operating from a cell phone, and then require you to purchase PREPAID AIRTIME from VODACOM before awarding you your prize! WHADDEVA!

  • ElaineS 22 Sep 2011, 11:51 AM

    my daughter of 14 received this message this morning , congratulations your sim has won R120 000, plus Nokia E72, quoting reference number. They want banking details to "deposit" funds, or an address to "post" a cheque. when i said i dont give out details of bank accounts, they said i must decide and sms details back to cell 0735460503, and ended call very quickly

  • Cazzy 22 Sep 2011, 10:24 AM

    My mother received a similar sms this morning claiming she had won R175 000.00 her winning number 119NKP to contact Mis Joy 083 940 5748. She contacted them and they confirmed that she had indeed won the money and that she would be receiving a cheque for the amount. She then sent them her works address and her cell number. They did not ask for airtime/money. She then only contacted me with the news and I informed her it is a massive scam. Something must be done to stop this! I thought that's why everyone had to RICA their number.

  • Niets 22 Sep 2011, 09:34 AM

    Received the same sms. ticket number yd27 call Mr Robinson Mark 0832082174 for your prize and make sure your ticket number is activated before transfer. Phoned and was instructed to phone back in 3 minutes. Did not do so

The R360.00 raised alarms so I contacted NOKIA to verify the promo, and guess what, nokia is running no promo like that...

  • Lucky10 13 Sep 2011, 01:39 PM

    I also received simalar sms about 3:45 monday morning that my sim has won me R135000.00 and to claim the prize I must call Mr Benson @ 0735096352. Foolishly I did phone the number and a Nigerian accent voice greeted me and he said I should buy R220.00 vodacom air-time and send the pin to him for activation, again stupidity I bought air-time and send the pin code telephonically to him. Then after an hour I received an sms from Account/Insurance department saying that I need to pay R3680.00 for insurance fee because my money is insured and is coming from UK then I started smelling rat. Please let's have this bastard arrested asap.

  • Elaine11 13 Sep 2011, 10:27 AM

    Just to inform you all, I have just phoned this "Mr Furguson" and informed him that I will be collecting cash, he claims to be located in PE. I then informed him that I work for National Crime Intel and will be paying him a visit shortly, he responded, F....CK YOU repeatedly and ended the call, guess the number will be changing shortly. I am reporting this to SAPS.

  • Elaine11 13 Sep 2011, 10:22 AM

  • Julienne 13 Sep 2011, 09:12 AM

    Thank you,all you wonderful people for your reports. I also received this sms, and my first thought was the same as @Eliabeth - an international phone company requiring us to phone them, lol!Plus,when I said this is surely a scam, I was given the number for Nokia Information Center! That, by the way, was supposedly :0318135629 and the person I had to contact was Mrs Lucio Ferio on tel:0737687843 That was for R150 000 in the 2011 Nokia Global Promo. Please let us continue to make people aware of these scams!

  • Elizabeth23 13 Sep 2011, 08:26 AM

    Just got an SMS that says i've won R195000. and Nokia promo. with ticket nr0166p. for claim cal Mr. Paul Benson 0713254312. Know it was a scam because of the grammar mistakes, and why would a international company like Nokia asked you to phone back to a cellphone nr. No landline nr. Nothing formal or official. It was too simple. Could smell a rat all over the sms.

  • Debbie10 12 Sep 2011, 01:02 PM

    Yup just got a sms to say CONGRATULATIONS! YOUR MOBILE NO. WON R920.000 IN NOKIA YEARLY PROMOTION. With ticket no. P147V. for claims call Mr Victor on 0788760602.

I have to claim my price at cell 0834222010. I smell a rat and realise this must be a scan. It is shocking to see so many reports on this scam.

  • Lele5 31 Aug 2011, 11:04 AM

    I received an amazing sms on the 23/08/2011 at 7:46 a.m. and congratulating me for winning R250,000 from Nokia 2011 yearly promotion and I was given numbers to contact and other detail (claim number 0166 SA)in order to get the money. I was advised to call the so called Miss Thandile at 0710801651. I called the first time and found her. She asked me to send her 220.00 airtime and I did send her. She gave her my details (postal address, and she promised to send them somewhere and I received an sms requesting me to pay R2,500 for transferring and posting the money to me. Then I began to think and check the reality of the issue only to find on internet a lot of people claiming they have been send the same sms's. I thought after registration of Card there would be tracing of this cruel people but It looks like not. I have lost 220.00 and how many people are going to fall into this trap. South Africa, Nokia, do something.

  • James32 31 Aug 2011, 09:04 AM

    Received on 30/11/2011 - "AWARD::CONGRATS!UR SIM CARD NO HAS WON R450,000.00 ON NOKIA MOBILE AWARD PROMO.YOUR PIN NO IS NK55P CALL CAROLINE DUBE ON 0785178027 FOR UR CASH PRIZE. 8AM-5PM." On my 3G SIM. It's the gulible and naive that these hoods manage to target even if it is only a few hundred rand. Come on people, let's think of a creative way to shut these predators down? Has anyone enquired whether it is possible to get their cell numbers blocked. Furthermore, surely it is possible to trace the actual cell through network coverage. Which SAPS division covers this. Advise your e-mail networks (business and personal)of this scam. Can the various Cell Networks not be pressured to put out advisory SMS's to all their SIM card holders as a public service anouncement?

  • Jackie15 31 Aug 2011, 08:05 AM

  • Shantelle 24 Aug 2011, 11:36 AM

    Looking though all these posts above there is one glaringly obviously problem - this has been going on for TOO long - why are these fraudsters still getting away with this? What about all those poor souls out there who don't have the savvy to check out the net before falling victim to these guys? Why are Nokia not doing something to stop this considering its linked to their product or are they just too big to care? As much as I know better than to get excited about these sorts of sms's one cant but help feel a pure thrill at the thought of 'just for a minute, what if it were real' - I too let myself run away with all sorts of plans of how this was going to improve my family's current situation. Aholes! Mine came in this morning 24 Aug 2011 - R950 000 ref:NK265 - 0738937070 One way to action this would be for the cellphone companies to immediately block these phones!!

  • Carmel Glissmann 24 Aug 2011, 09:00 AM

    I won R750000.00 this morning. I must say when I spoke to Mrs Smith??? she sounded very convincing. Gave me instructions to buy a R180 MTN voucher, sms her the voucher no, my name and address and I would hear from them within 24 hrs. Thank God for Google! I was just about to get dressed and ruch out to buy the voucher when common sense prevailed and I checked Google. I feel quite sad - was already planning a holiday to see my grandchildren.

    I received the SMS @ 7 am this morning to contact ERIC on 0769711907. I knew it was a scam. I then googled this and found that this is indeed a scam.. Guys, plz be careful n dnt be a part of any such scams...

  • Yolanda Sotashe 18 Aug 2011, 09:46 AM

    I received an sms at 4am this morning from a cell number 0762311519 "Congrats:Your cell number is the winner of R250,000 on NOKIA 2011 promo with serial no:NKZA0166. Contact 0837608243 from 8am-5pm (Mon-Fri) for your cash prize" my first question to myself was why would i get an sms at that time of the day and if i did win money from NOKIA why didn't they call me? I would like to know why are we registering for RICA if we will still get scams like this, and i see this has been going on forever, why are these people not caught. I called the number and the lady i spoke to said she's Lorraine and wanted to know i i want my money in the bank or cheque, when i said cheque she drpped the phone, i called again and she said i must buy Vodacom Airtime to the value of R330 today before 5pm and sms the pin numbers with my name and postal address, i must keep the airtime because i'll be able to load it in after i sent the pin numbers to them, how dom can i be to do that, please i'm also appealing to Captain Erasmus of the SAPS to do something about these people, RICA is for things like these, i believe.

  • Tony23 15 Aug 2011, 02:07 AM

    At 01h30 I received a message from 0791876294 congratulating me for winning a nokia yearly promotion. I hope the police and rica can use this info to track and prosecute. High hopes I guess!!!

  • Unknown 13 Aug 2011, 05:29 AM

    Oh oh oh these people are playing with other people emotions they also sent a msg that I've won R175,000 in Nokia yearly promotion when I knew that I didn't even enter any competition. So these people are use many of different numbers and why this rica can't arrest them?

  • JENNIFER PRETORIUS 12 Aug 2011, 02:39 PM

    A few minutes ago I received an SMS telling me to phone "Ferguson" as I had won a prize in the Nokia 2011 Promotion. He told me to phone back in 5 mins as he had to verify my ticket number. Phone back and he confirmed that I had indeed won R250 000 and asked whether I would like a cheque or an EFT into my bank account. Told me to SMS my bank details. After careful thought I sent a message asking for a cheque to be sent to my postal address. Have not heard back from him and am not expecting the cheque to arrive either. Be careful I think this is another scam doing its rounds.

  • Hugo5 12 Aug 2011, 09:43 AM

    I received an sms this morning at 04:11 from 079 970 2220, congratulations you have won R250 000 from Nokia Yearly Promotion.Ticket no.002KP. Please contact 073 735 1390 for your claim. so i called them from a pay-phone, just in case, it was some company in Bloem where i spoke to an Asanda. sounded like a call centre and she informed me that i could give her my banking details for a eft payment or my postal address for a cheque. but i guess after seeing this site it's a scam.

  • Romi 12 Aug 2011, 09:04 AM

  • Lethu 12 Aug 2011, 12:01 AM

    Interesting that the authorities are dragging their feet in fighting this scam and putting the people responsible behind bars. Just got an sms now as well: "Nokia Promo! Congratulation you have won", blah blah blah! Seriously! Interesting that upon Googling "Nokia Promo" / Nokia Promotion 2011, one of the 1st hits u get is about a Scam/criminal activity linked to this "Promo"! as another user already asked... Whats the point of RICA, if they cant spot a patten here, and therefore be able to trace these scams. It's our privacy and security that is being compromised here!! Our security system is pathetic!!! Our phone numbers and personal info are just floating around for criminals to get hold of them and do as they please! (sorry for the long comment, but this is just F---d up!

  • tony11 11 Aug 2011, 10:53 PM

  • small h 11 Aug 2011, 08:38 AM

    The first thing that give these people away is the fact that it reads: Congratulation (no S at the end) Planning on phoning them and giving them a piece of my mind..... But tell me..... this thread was started in January already - with APARENTLY an agent on the case...... so why is this still going on?! Not only on MTN but Vodacom too.

  • Christa9 11 Aug 2011, 08:27 AM

    YIP - you will not believe it but I have won also a R950 000 and a Nokia cellphone in the Nokia Promo...Had to phone Miss Caroline - 0786716274 and then Jerry Jenkins (foreign sounding black man) answered saying he is Miss Caroline's PA. I also had to go and buy R200 Telkom Pre-paid and send him the pin starting with 019...Then Nokia will contact me. I insisted I would want the money with a bank guarenteed check. Now is received the follow up - "Attention! This message is from nokia payment department, regarding the transfer of your R95,000 you have to pay the sum of R1,750 first for the insurance approval certificate, transfer and delivery charge. This is because your money was insured. Contact Mrs joyce raymond on 0739952885 for the payment instruction and delivery of your cell phone. Thank you and congratulations. Pls obey this instruction so that your money will be released to you today. Bye" So - I guess their best next option after the R200 voucher they are trying to get another R1750 from me....but sorry for them I am not willing to gamble on more than the R200. This is where I get off...

  • Kate de Goded 11 Aug 2011, 02:39 AM

    I recieved the same sms this morning to contact a Nicky and I thought ' wow R95000 I cld do with that' but something wasn't right. I didn't enter a competition and I dont own a Nokia so why would I win it. It was then I decided to google the Nokia promo 2011. I'm glad I did!!!!

    I have a sneaking suspicion that either this website was set up by the same fradusters who are checking the progress of thier deeds. If not, the same fradusters are not dumb. They are reading the same reports and are therefore tracking a SAPS case, if there is one at all. I know I sound too cautious and perhaps persimmistic but does anyone have any thoughts on my viewpoint?

I phoned Adam Williams on 0790910712 and when he answered i asked who was speaking, He said why, who do i want to speak to. I told him Adam and he said yes, thats him. So i asked more about the price ect. Then he wanted my bank details and personal details. I told him that i know this is a scam and im not giving my banking details, he then said this is not a scam and i can even give him my postal address and he will post the cheque to me. So i told him i will think about it.

    i got a sms saying that i won R95000.00 and that I had to callMrs Phumza on 083 319 6764. I knew it was a scam because who ever sent the sms cannot even spell.I then decided to have some fun with them, i called and asked the lady for a land line number she could not hang up fast enough. Don't be fooled by these people.i just don't get it there must be ways to stop them.

  • michelle9 23 May 2011, 07:00 AM

    they must be getting desperate, because they've increased the winnings. This morning my sms read that I'd won R450,000.00 - and I must call 0738039991

  • heather8 18 May 2011, 07:23 PM

  • Trevor 6 18 May 2011, 08:49 AM

    i received an sms to claim my price this morning, is it possible for the authorities to do so in order to trace the perpetrators and once and for all put a stop to this sort of crime before it really gets out of hand and someone gets hurt in the process.

  • Neville5 17 May 2011, 01:36 PM

    I got similar to above this morning 02H30, had to contact Portia Madiba. Never responded.

  • Mangi 17 May 2011, 10:47 AM

    I also got an sms this morning at 3'o clock, that said that my sim number has won me, a sum of R175,000. That i must contact a certain Mr. Larry on 0780148409. How dumb do these people think i am. Safe to say i never responded to the sms.

  • Rob14 17 May 2011, 10:43 AM

  • Tyrone4 17 May 2011, 09:37 AM

    I got the same sms this morning from 078 36247691 that said i should call Tandile on 0710801651 for claims, I called and spoke to a man with a Nigerian accent. before i could say anything the man was bombarding me with vulgar words. luckily i had googled "Nokia yearly promotion" before i called so i understood what was happening

  • Johan Grobler 17 May 2011, 09:02 AM

    I had the same call this morning,03h09, which states: ' Congratulations, Your mobile no. was among the lucky winners from NOKIA YEARLY PROMOTION. You have won R 145 000. Ticket no. 011AK. Call 0739316383 for your cash prize immediately. From 8am - 4pm. This was sent from 0737166493 I called from another (Vodacom phone) and it rang, went over to a message that said that I may not leave a message - WHAT A SCAM - NOKIA should take this to Carte Blance

  • Zamekile Mditshwa 17 May 2011, 08:26 AM

    I just forgot to mention the fact that when I called her she also told me to buy R200 telkom voucher and give her Pin no. so that she can activate my ticket and account no. at Nokia.Because of many scams I have read about in the internet and email I did not believe her so I did not do that.

  • Zamekile Mditshwa 17 May 2011, 08:19 AM

    I also received an sms from 0719776638 with the following message:"congraculations:your mobile no. has won the sum of R150000 in 2011 Nokia yearly Promotion.With ticket no.0166N..For claims call Nelisiwe at 0738378229

  • NOTHANDO 14 May 2011, 10:39 AM

    hey, this people... i received an sms at about 2 o'clock in the morning. I didnt bother calling them coz i know that it is just a scam. Nokia must do something i mean not to let this people use their name or brand to fraud people coz there are people who are really desperate for money

  • Bulelwa4 13 May 2011, 01:26 PM

    The sms read: Award winner: Your mobile number has won R250 000, 00 in Nokia yearly promotion, ref no (FA286) for claim call Brenda Nkosi on 0739429526 for cash prize. I called the number out of curiosity (from an untraceable landline) and enquired what this was about since it sounded like a scam. "Brenda" assured me that she works for Nokia and that I can look up their details on the Nokia website. The 'head office' is in the UK and the number is apparently : 00-44-703-17-6722 and I was required to sms back or fax the following details to 0867590517 to claim the prize. Name & Surname Address Province Cell # (the same cell number they sms'd you on!) Anyhoo, I told 'Brenda' Thank you, but it all sounded too fishy so I wouldn't be sending my details and she should have a great day further. I wonder how many people are going to fall for this scam.

  • Senzo3 13 May 2011, 01:16 PM

    I also recieved an sms this morning at 02:11 saying my cell phone number has won R95 000 from NOKIA YEARLY PROMO. with ticket number 0166P. I must call Miss Norma at 0734376169 for claims. I just call her now she asked me to buy a R180 MTN airtime from any garage and send the pin to her to activate my ticket she ask for my bank account and my details. I bought the airtime but I didn't send it cause I suspected something but now I see I helped myself these people must be caught seriously.

  • Jack5 13 May 2011, 09:08 AM

    I have received a sms this morning 02:15 from 0786314891 that I have won R85, 000.00 in the Nokia yearly promotion competition and that I must phone Pat with winning ticket no. 113T on 0780746575. I called from a landline and spoke a Nigerian guy and I was told to call back in 3 minutes with my details. Definitely scam here. Nokia please do something about this. Please stop these people

  • Gert13 13 May 2011, 07:53 AM

    Won R450,000 this morning! (Nokia/Nashua Mobile). This person/gang seems to be making money else he/they would have stopped long ago. Is somebody investigating and attempting to apprehend?

  • olive 13 May 2011, 12:45 AM

    the sms seems not only to be sent to nokia phones, cos i dont use nokia phone but i got an sms stating the 250,000, had to send the voucher pin of R180 mtn airtime.neverdid to norma khumalo 0838967069 but sms came from another number 0784400627

  • Lebohang Radebe 12 May 2011, 03:29 PM

    This year alone I have recieved 4 smses claiming that my sim no has won money, this one time i called and the guy told me that i should sms him my ID and acc no and i told him i would but never did...To prove that its a scam they send these smses at all hours of the night and they don't even have a landline to trick us with. It's sad that most people fall for this scam. Ask yourself this: if you did not enter a competition how can you win sometimes you not even using the network they claim to be from. Think about it people and be careful not to be taken advantage of.

  • Ronel17 12 May 2011, 10:04 AM

    I received an sms 2 days ago , saying i had won R195 000 from Nokia promo, with a reference number and a cell phone number i had to phone to activate it. No name was given... Thank heavens i didn't phone!!

  • Sam8 11 May 2011, 05:03 PM

    Got the same message that I'd won R95k and a Nokia E65. I immediately smelt a rat as I've had many such scams emailed to me, including the renewing of your bank details on the Internet. This time I was to call a Lucky or Melissa on 0727709437, tried twice and was engaged. What really is concerning is that such scams are on the increase and if we that are aware of these scams still call to check it out ....just for incase!!!!, what about the vulnerable and the old people and needy of which there are many. We live in a sick world.

  • Danie12 11 May 2011, 03:09 PM

    Got the same sms as all the other above. I phoned and the lady advised that I must buy R150 mtn voucher and send my Id no together with my banking details and the pin for the voucher and that the funds will be in my account tomorrow. Then I said that I am not able to buy airtime as I am in Angola. She then advised that she will help me if I just sent my details. I sms her to confirm the amount. She replied from another no saying it is R200 000. I then replied that I think it is a scam. no reply yet. I received the winning notification from cell no 078 271 3488, the no I had to call was 073 496 5508 and the sms about confirming the amount was sent from 073 793 7312. My supposed ref no is SA 00 264 N. Please stop these people

Two different cell numbers appear on this new message. The one I should have called to claim my R95 000 prize is 073 6359 854, but the sender's cell number is 079 385 6228. Please add these numbers to the list of numbers being investigated! Thanks!

  • Neil5 29 Apr 2011, 11:01 AM

    Suprise!!! I got the same sms and the cheek to send it so early in the morning. Suppose those who work iniquity does so at night. One day nobody is going to answer to any sms anymore. Suppose this must be a worry to the service providers as the only sms's that will go around are the fraudulant/criminal type. Maybe they can then start a user group!

  • Dovhani 27 Apr 2011, 11:34 PM

    Got the message tonight - 27 April. I am on MTN network. I am very suprised that network operators are not taking this up with the law. Usuming RICA is not fully functional, mobile operators are still in a position to figure out location of these criminals. Looking at the previous log of mails, this particular scam has been going on for over three month now.

Unfortunately i failed to smell a rat because i got too excited and i am quite dissapointed in myself. i followed through with it and called ken, he asked for my ticket number, i gave it to him and he asked me to contact him again. When i contacted him he confirmed the fact that i had won this sum of money and i should purchase R180 MTN airtime in order to activate it aswell as send them my banking details. 1st i thought he said R110 and i sent him that amount, he then called and said he told me it should be R180, i then sent him the R180 airtime and by that time the R110 had already been used! when he got the airtime, he explained further that i will get a call from the financial dept and the money should be in by 12pm on that same day. the "SO CALLED" financial dept sent me an sms to say that this money that i will be recieving has to be insured, hence i must deposit R2520 into their account for that insurance. again driven by excitement i sent that money (i was flippen stupid) and they gave me a call to say that the transfer is already taking place and i will have recieved the money by 9:30am the next day......i went and checked my account....THERE WAS NO MONEY!!!!
