NOKIA Yearly Promotion

I received an sms from +27(82)4721103 as follows:Congratulation!!!Your number was among the Lucky winners of R150,000.00 from Nokia yearly promotion ref no. 010KP. Call 0718387583 to claim your prize. I immediately suspected a scam and called to satisfy my curiosity. The call was answered by a black male, who would not give me his name, but did say he was a claims advisor based in Nokia Bloemfontein. He further stated that i have till 12:00 noon today to foward my I.D. number and banking details to qualify for immediate payment of the prize money of R150,000.00!! On googling this i find that this scam has been going on for some time now. Why is there nothing been done to curb this?

    I received an sms this morning at 4h30 and was very upset because I know about the scams.The contact person is a Mr. Williams and I have contacted him on 0826613378 and explained to me the procedure. he requested me to by telkom vouchers to the value of R600.00 activation. I could hear that this guy is a foreigner. How can these guys operate like this in our country?

    My mum received the same one as above from Liziwe cell number 0839461913, saying she'd won R160k. Call originated from 0712282235. Its a SCAM, DO NOT return the call or give them any personal or banking details!

    Seems Nokia is "rolling in the doe" as I too have won R250000 this morning!!!! My message was from 0722653820 and states "(Nokia) Congratulation's you have won R250,000 from NOKIA YEARLY PROMOTION. YOUR TICKET NO. 002KP. PLEASE CONTACT ON 0834866261 FOR YOUR CLAIM." Hmm, I too do not own a Nokia and have not for some time. But darn the money would be nice!!! Nokia need to take a stand and issue a public notice or something!

    Sms saying I won 95 000 in the yearly nokia promotion well I called the number, I was told to go buy a telkom voucher worth 500 to activate my ticket, because of that i then went to google to check the facts to find it was a scam. This year i received another one saying the same thing. I am sick of it firstly i know its a scam but what about other people out the & what are u doing as nokia because they are dragging ur name in the mud, peoples dreams are being shattered. Heres the number they said i should call :0719333319 & 0795756501 the ticket number is : yx2 names Melesa & Lucky. I suggest u get these dogs & get to the bottom of this. No number works without being ricad.
