I also got the same message this morning saying I won R750 000.00 also with so many spelling mistakes. When I phoned Mrs Smith she was so rude, when I kept asking her what's the next step will be after i have bought my voucher, she said I'll find out when I phone her back with the voucher pin. She did say she had to register my number at the Nokia's account department and then she put the phone down in my ear. That's when I luckily decided to google this.She keeps phoning me to find out if I have the voucher.. I dont know how to find out who she is so that I can report her? 
Doesn't the RICA thing work now for all cellphone users (meaning have their ID and physical addresses?)
I REALLY hope someone is doing something about this and that ALL the people involved will be punished to the full extent of the law.

    Got an sms this morning stating the following from this cellphone nr: 0796100018 - Congratulations! YOUR SIM CARD IS ONE OF THE CHOSEN SIM IN NOKIA YEARLY PROMOTION,CONTACT OUR AGENT ON 0796318678 WITH a ref number and claim your R 105,000.00 I did phone, asking first who am i speaking with, the guy said he is Mnr.Smith. So asked whether this is a scam, and he said no, i must give him my ref nr. and sms all my details to him ( address, pobox, id nr cellnr. etc). I insisted that i dont want to give my banking details, because what if this is a scam, he then said they will send the money via the post office then i can claim my price there, but i have to send my details to him asking again that i send the banking details, when i said no, what if this is a scam, he said that if i think its a scam then i must stop phoning him and stop phoning this number, when i asked him what is nokia's customer careline, he said its the number that i just phoned, yeah right !!!!! I googled the promo first, and then decided not to send any info after seeing so many complaints about the same sms. WHY cant NOKIA do anything about this!!!!!!!!!
