Nokia promotion, you're the winner of R95000


I received an sms from Nokia promotions stating that I was the lucky winner of R95000. I called and the person asked me that to better the final draw, I had to purchase R200 and send him, acc num, phone num, and vouche num. I obviously asked him what company his from, where in cape town... He answered it clearly and spontaniously... He said he was from Long Street, Plot 4, 11th floor, working for and outsourced company called nokia connection. I'm more SA, so I could not make sure if all this was legite... Anyway, ended up  googling all of this after, and here I am, feeling ridiculous and stupid for having fallen for this fraud. I would like to know, whether the police cannot get hold of this guys information theough his phone number: 0730713298. I am still in comunication with the person. I know all about him, but he does not know that!!! I just wasting his money, just like he did with me...   Please let me know what to do... Thanking you in advance   Denis

  • johan8 4 Sep 2013, 08:50 AM

    I recieved sms from a person rather a idiot that i have won 95000.00 . when i phoned back she told me that i won money. i refused my banking details and accepted the check method. I then googled this and saw all these people and decided to not send my adress this must be placed all over f/b youtube and all other possible warning places to minimise this type of thing because i will kill that person should i get hold of him/her.

  • ELS 1 Aug 2013, 04:07 PM

    I also received an sms with R 95000.00 as the winning price. I phone Precious knowing that its fraud. But when I asked her what there company name is because I want to Google them she emmediatly put the phone down. I phoned her again and again just to give her greave and to tell her that she is working for a fraudulent Company and that I have reported it to the police. I couldnt get hold of her on that number since. Fraud all Fraud

  • Barbara6 10 Jul 2013, 12:54 PM

    Also got SMS saying that I had won R150 000. Also feel a fool for falling for their scam. Can't something be done about it. Is Nokia part of the scam or do they just not care? I tried to get hold of a Nokia head office to make sure, but there is no number to contact. Barbara

  • cindy wykerd 9 Jul 2013, 04:14 PM

    I received an sms 10 minutes ago stating that I had won R155 000.00 and a Nokia E65. To activate my reference number YX2 I need to purchase R110 airtime and sms the pin and my name and address to John 074 138 0933 or Melesa 084 042 3873. My cheque will be delivered in 3 days!!!! I suppose if you ask for an EFT they want your banking details. This is not Nokia. This is a scam!!!

  • Aqeela Oliver 3 Jun 2013, 05:12 PM

    I received an sms saying my mobile number won R95000 from nokia 10 minutes ago, inorder to claim i need to give my ticket number 0166p to Mrs Lisa on 0737532902 and buy R110 vodacome. It didnt make sense that my MTN mobile number had to support VODACOM by buying airtime.I thought it was to good to be true and googled it.. Lucky for me, I run across this site. Am I able to go to the police station with this?

  • Amanda in Durban 8 Apr 2013, 04:15 PM

    its strange that this has been going on for so long and they have not managed to track these people down. its the second time i am getting this message and most people fall for this.

    I received this sms on the 8th of December... "Winning Notification: Thank you for staying with RICA! Your cell number has won you R750,000 Sponsored by NOKIA Inc. Email: rica_sa@safrica.com or Call 0733383990 I did call the number. A guy answered saying I can collect my money in one of their offices in JHB. He then stated I must email them my details... All I did is mail them saying I want proof of documentation and of what I entered. Received an email asking for my ID number, contact numbers, and where I stay. I left it at that. Can't believe I almost fell for this crap. I think this is how they get a hold of your details. They can clean out your accounts and worse yet, come to your homes and clean you out there and kill your family.

Call Williams 0733902843...Call 8am to 5pm This sms was send to my mobile around 1:55 am 27 June 2012. Where do these criminals get our mobile numbers? Was RICA really a security measure? If yes whom does it secure the criminals as they are never caught and they keep on pursuing one scam after the other? Just yesterday I received a sms stating that my mobile has won R450, 000. Is there a measure from the commercial crime to stop these actions? They are irritating.

  • Pen 27 Jun 2012, 09:07 AM

  • cassie 23 Jun 2012, 02:53 PM

    Unfortunely there are people who would believe these silly things, because they are in a financial problem and would do almost anything to get money. I can't even believe that our POLICE hasn't done anything to stop this yet. I think we as victims(those whom has fall for it and those who want to help) should try doing something about this.

  • zahara 22 Jun 2012, 11:03 AM

    How is it that this is still happening a year after it was originally reported? Are our awesome police force doing ANYTHING about this?

  • Raj Reddy 14 Feb 2012, 03:13 PM

    These people are not afraid to give you even landline numbers. I asked and was given a landline number 011-079 4757 and cell number 078 9736713 and spoke to a Mrs. Thando. Surely the SAPS can trace these people. I fortunately am not easily persuaded to part with my hard earned cash but I feel sorry for the poor souls who think their prayers have been answered. But they say what goes around comes around.

    Same story. R450 000 won. Contact Lucie Khummalo. 0739592897 If all numbers should by rica'd, then the police should know who the numbers belong to.

    received a msg on my email today saying have won R250,000 contact 0837608243 with the ref. number NKZA0166 between 8am and 5pm today to claim prize. I thought it may be a scam but phoned out of curiosity to get a young black girl who told me her name was Lindi and she worked for Nokia Promotions. She told me I had won this money and even asked how i wanted it paid out in my bank or by cheque. realising it really was a scam as suspected i said cheque.She said that i must buy airtime to the value of R200 sms my name and postal address to her and the airtime voucher number and they would let me know when they were releasing the money then i must re-sms the voucher number to aknowledge that i was me - yeah right!!!!!! Luckily I realised in the begining it was a scam

    Also, 450k ...HAHAHA, I was so happy till I got here. Mine was from Lucie Khummalo 0724492442, One of us should try sue Nokia for not giving us the money :D maybe that could start some kind of action against this BS.

    I was scammed like an idiot today. Imagine we could start a business that pays to catch these shitzers! we would be rich.

  • Gatvol5 8 Dec 2011, 07:06 AM

    I do not think that Denis asked all mobile users who received the scam sms should respond But who has an answer to nailing these f.uckers So who does? If you are a police officer reading this please investigate and post some info please, maybe an official site on what to do to help the police in this regard. Thanks Alot Your sincere Mr Gatvol vir al die K.ak

  • Chichi 23 Nov 2011, 09:15 AM

    My partner received the similar message that he won R95000 he must call Precious on 0738908074. I caled this number and the lady that answered was very doddgy,. I asked about the company but failed to give answers. She asked for my details to verify on their system whether or not i am a the winner. Given that all numbers should be RICA, can't they be traced and stopped?

  • Michelle57 17 Nov 2011, 09:01 AM

    I also received a sms, you won R95 000.00 in the Nokia Promotion. Call Nomsa 0781063535. She asked me to send a sms with my physical address, they will send me a cheque. I nearly believe her, untill I saw all of the above on the internet. Can't the police do something about this.

  • Romalla 14 Nov 2011, 09:46 AM

    Isn't this against the law they using a well known company like Nokia to con innocent people, I think that somebody has to be held responsible. Why is Nokia not doing something about it, I sure all you people that have been contacted own a Nokia handset. I just purchased a Nokia 5230 and low and be hold I received a message.My ref no: isZNK012 and I won R295.000.

  • Chris30 11 Nov 2011, 09:42 AM

    i also received a similar sms this morning. telling me my phone no has won R195000 and i should call Mrs Portia Zulu on 078 6548186 to claim my prize with ticket no 0166. when i phoned this woman she did not only sound dodgy, she was also not very forthcoming with info re promo. she told me it was not a scam, their head office is based in london and there is an office in ct.imagine my dissapointment when my insticts told me that this was a scam!

  • Andre 29 9 Nov 2011, 12:29 PM

    Wel this morning i had a sms from Nokia with a yearly promotion winning R95,000.00. Well i do own a Nokia, not in service though. Not going to waste my time. It came from 0826829135 and i needed to contact a mr williams on 0793620225.

  • Mary-Lou 8 Nov 2011, 01:22 PM

    My Nokia supposedly won R450K. I do not even own a Nokia. Knowing about the scam, I deliberately phoned and found out that the stakes have now increased! If I buy a R250 airtime and sms'd the ref no. I will receive my cheque within 24hrs.

  • Annie14 8 Nov 2011, 11:57 AM
