    Hi all. Every week i get the same type scam message.I always receieve the messages in the early morning hours. Its always the same format. Cccoco cola,omo,rica and nokia has awarded you R150 000 or what ever sum of money they think suits best,with a refrence no. and a different cell no every week and a Mr frank,reza,mark or jeff. Here is the numbers from which i received just now. 0832179797 and 0738146988 and here is some prev numbers.0730852881 0837687802,0718352881,0837687802,0718352597,0839726499,0747973040,0788106716,0739646995,0607162687. They must catch people because if you call the number it sounds like a call center, i can here a lot of people in the back ground. But the second you ask if its a scam, they end the call. And you can call till you die you wont get trugh again. I hope this is of help.

    Nokia rewarded me with R200000. I must call Mrs Precious on 0606320353

  • McKinley 12 Mar 2014, 12:21 PM

    The usual numbers and therefore the usual suspects: SMS came from - 0792653007 Number to call - 0744917139 (Rachel) I see the last report was on 28 Feb, so this number has been active for nearly 2 weeks since this scamster was first reported here. Makes one wonder who is monitoring this site and whether any of these reports are being forwarded to the appropriate authorities for further investigation. It would be nice to know that reporting a crime on this site will have more than just a placebo effect. So, as a concerned citizen, I am curious whether there is any other action taken, apart from making this information available to the general public?

  • Michele2 28 Feb 2014, 12:23 PM

    I received an sms this morning -Congratulations!Your mobile no won R195 000 from Nokia Proma, Ticket no 0059 for claims call Rachel on 0744917139, I called and spoke to Rachel she told me to buy Vodacon airtime of R275. I must then phone and give her pin and ref number and the money will be paid out to me either via cheque or into my bank, Ha, ha what a joke! Be careful

    I receiveda sms saying I won R250 000 etc. Phoned the no 071 719 9667 Paul answer saying Nokia Promotions. Confirmed that I have won and that I can come and collect a cheque at 132 Main Street, Sea Point, Cape Town. Next day I get sms saying I must pay R2600. Phoned Agnes 078 650 3337 who said that the insurance money is 100% refundable when I receive the cheque in the post. I knew this is a scam but tried to get as much info from them so that they can be traced down and put away for life.

  • Len3 3 Oct 2012, 10:50 AM

    Yesterday my husband received an sms from Margaret advising him he had won R250K in Nokia competition. He called her number today and was told he could receive the money either directly into his bank account or by post. He sent his postal details to 0726632655 and then was advised he had to pay over R3K for transfer fees etc. Realising now that this was a scam, I did a google search and came up with this site, to find all the other people who had been harressed in this way. Surely Nokia should be doing a public awareness campaign, advising people not to be caught up in these scams!

  • James Roberts 3 Oct 2012, 08:16 AM

  • Chris 9 14 Sep 2012, 08:20 AM

    Also got this sms that you won R250 000, your Rica sim has won you R250 ooo in the Nokia ongoing promotion contact Lindiwe no 0716159009 Ref no 16Uk it was send from cell no 0823560616, the people report this all the time but nothing is done, this site does not come to its rights then also or serving its purpose, the same message was sent 2 years ago this same contact details to another person. Also Lindiwe. This just reflects that crime is allright in South Africa, since the ANC took over, nothing is done. And this is not the only ongoing crime in South Africa there is the farm attacks the scams at the local banks to withdraw money from your account with your card, they clone the card, after you withdraw money never let some one convince you again to put in your card due to some or other problem, that is the time when they clone your card, I can go on and on, nothing is done at the end. This beautiful land of ours is a crime paradise due to the lack to solve crimes.

  • Piet13 13 Sep 2012, 08:07 AM

    Received SmS, you have won R185000 in Nokia yearly promotion from 0767474789 to contact Mrs. Candy on 0732876691. I received the same sms last year August. Can anyone do something about it, I can't believe is still going on for a Year. I was curious and went to the bank (ABSA) and pretend to make a deposit and asked the teller to check if the correct details is on the slip , she told me the account number is right and it belong to a Mr. James, but could not give me more info. I left without making the deposit.

    Strange enough my winning ticket number is also 0166p and the cell number where it came from is 27714038830

  • Gerda Gaffney 8 Aug 2012, 05:24 PM

    I have been conned, silly me not to check first but will in future, got sms saying congrats your mobile no has won R250 000 on this NOKIA year promotion with tickt no 0166p call this no 0837462920 or 0726035094 for your cash prize. When i phoned the first number, I asked the lady's name Linda (probably false name) and she told me she will check the no, I must please phone back in 5 min and she will confirm after which I phoned back and she confirmed, then she told me to buy airtime for R260 and sms the number to her and my banking details and the bank will phone me before Friday 12h00 to confirm payment of amount. She needs the airtime number to activate the prize. Cant believe I can be so dumb as to fall for it. Anyway when I loaded it it was already used. I phoned her back and she said no, it was loaded to activate the prize, i must keep the slip and by Friday the bank will phone me. So R260 poorer I have learnt a valuable lessson, I asked for a landline number and she said oh, it is not working, so I said I still want it. She gave me a Cape Town number but of course does not exist. I asked for the business name and she said Nokia Promotions. Hahaha, wish these people can be caught out, cant someone blacklist these numbers?

    Baie besware . Waar is ons polisie.Hulle weet mos nou al lankal van die korrupsie.Het julle al gedink van al die goedgelowige medeburgers wat op die manier ingeloop is .Almal skryf op die internet wat hul ervaringe was met hierdie gewetenlose skelms.Wat staan ons te doen?Ons mag nie toelaat dat ons aan die neus rondgelei word deur n klomp donnerse uitlanders nie. Ons, oor kleurgrense heen , moet hierdie rubbish wys dat ons nie n klomp blerrie fools is nie.

    I got same message from 918373965279.

  • ADP 12 Jul 2012, 09:49 AM

    Same sms, Except for the fact that they used RICA as the reason for the Nokia Promo Prize. R250 000. Looked it up on Google, found this website, and THEN gave them a call. Bongiwue answered and told me to phone her back after 10 minutes. I gave her a fake reference number and she answered with: "Yes, I have found you on our system, Congratulations!" So I asked about the procedure and if I have to go out and buy Airtime for her now..To which she replied yes. I told her that her phone number is now on this site. Her number is 0795896618 and the number it was sent from is 0814039127

  • Sive Goniwe 10 Jul 2012, 01:30 PM

    Really now!?! I am thankful for the internet. If I was money thirsty, I'd probably have followed what the SMS said. I also googled the contents of the message & it showed me this site. May God help those who fell for this scam.
