Nokia year promotion

I got a text message this morning telling me that I won R 250.000 on the Nokia year promotion with a ticket number. I should call 0781244558 to collect the money. The text is also showing the sender with +27728724542 and a message centre with +2782913594. I called the number given and I was told that I won the R250.000 and should choose to get a cheque or give my account details. I used the option cheque. Now I was told that I have to buy R 180 airtime and send the voucher number to the same number together with my address details and my phone number. I should never give omebody the ticket number which won to avoid that somebody else is claiming the win. I asked for an official email but this man only repeated very friendly what he has tell me before. So I checked in the internet and found out immediately that its a fake - this is why I report it. Obviously they refined the trick.

    The fraudsters is still at large!!! This morning I received a sms that my number has been radomly picked in the nokia year promotion, a total amount of R 950 000.00. The number to call for the "prize" is:0783728454 and the sms came from 0766149275. It's sad that people do this to each other, just remember the wheel turns dear fraudsters.
