There are similar scams reported on various websites, so this is obviously a scam. Nokia has released a statement saying that they aren't involved in any lottery type competitions.

    My mom just phoned me with this huge excitement. She received an sms saying that she's won R196,000.00 from the Yearly Nokia Promotion, with the reference number of 019NKP. she asked me to call James Mooer @ 078 632 0759 and give him her details(bank accounts, id number and all) as he required them. I thought it was a bit unreal and I googled it, guess what it's a scam!!! sho, my mom is going to be very disappointed.

  • Big John Silver 21 Feb 2012, 12:18 PM

    Just past 8 o'clock this morning the same "happy" news. Mobile number selected in the 2012 Nokia Yearly Promotion. Ticket number NYP847C. Princely sum of R250 000.00. That's a whack for an early Tuesday morning in a slow month of February. It was sent from 076 095 6709. Response contact is one "Margaret vd Merwe" @ 076 771 2132. Needless to say when we called from an ID barred number this number was constantly "busy".

    This morning around 12:00 I received the same sms and they congratulated Me, about My winning of a 275 000 from Nokia Yearly promotions. Ticket Number UK22ZA, their number is 076 470 1830. I called the number and they took My cell Number, which they obviously knew before even asking, and they wanted to know My ticket Number, I asked of the Guy to call Me as His line was not clear, what He said was He can't, and His Name apparently is Timothy He said...
