  • Chantelle20 18 Jan 2013, 11:03 AM

    I got an sms at 3am in the friggin morning claiming that I won R290000.00. Right away I knew it was a scam. And I just started fuming! So I called "Sandra Atkins" on 083 859 3393 with ref: NK265 and gave HIM (yes it was a dude) a piece of my mind. He kept telling me that they're a real company wich only ticked me off more. I asked him what his e-mail was and he said nokiaclaims@HOTMAIL and I started laughing at him. I told him you're not a real company and you call me again I will have you reported, what you're doing is called STEALING and I hope your boss sufferers diarrhea!!!! I HATE PEOPLE WHO TRY TO STEAL FROM OTHERS for the hard earned money. No I didnt give him any of my details and you guys shouldn't either. You will know its a scam 1. A huge amount of money out of nowhere DOES NOT just fall on your lap. 2. The company has to be registered and will NOT have a gmail or hotmail or live account. DO NOT GET FOOLED BY THESE assbutts!!! I feel like pummeling these people and tell them to get a real effin JOB!

    I too just got an sms saying that I won R295 ooo rand. I called th enumber on the sms just to see where this would go and a guy with a west african accent answered, said he was Mark Morris. He asked for my cell number and ticket number to verify my ticket then asked me to call back in 5 min (what company running a promotion does not have enough resources to call clients back?). I did as instructed and he confirmed I had won the and asked how I would like to be paid. He sais a bank to bank transfer would be best but I said I would rather pick up the cash in person. He said that's fine but when I asked for his address he began muttering something inaudible and then said "look, we are in PE, when you are in PE, call me". I told him ok thanks. Clearly this chap was hoping I would give him my accout details and when he thought I too was up to something, he panicked. NOKIA sor the police should do something about this number 0787876821

    I received an SMS stating that i have won R95, 000.00 on Nokia promotion with a contact number 071 455 0803 and the name Sandr'e from the number 072 554 2350. I called Sandr'e 071 455 0803 she asked me to foward my details to effect payment. I send her my details as in Account holder details, account number, cell number, and their ref 009kp. I called her to confirm receipt which she confirmed. She told me it will take an hour to process. I went into the internet and realise is a scam. i called her and asked her to stop everything because this is a scam and she dropped the line. My concern is that she has my details. as in account number, cell number and names. Please help stop it before it ruins people's lifes

    I received an SMS in the early hours of the morning on 29 March 2012 stating the following: "Congratulations! your SIM has won you R150,000 in 2012 NOKIA YEARLY PROMO: with REF: NO: 16NP. Please contact MRS LIDIWE NTAMO ON 0716159009 for your cash prize." The SMS was received from the following nubmer 0790861761. It is ridiculous how neither the authorities nor Nokia have done anything about this since the inception of this thread on 14 March 2012.

    I received a sms today 28 March 2012. CONGRATULATIONS YOUR MOBILE NUMBER HAS BEEN RANDOMLY PRICKED IN NOKIA YEAR PROMO. YOU HAAVE WON R950 000 00. REF NO: NK265 CONTACT 078 1565870 FOR CLAIMS. When I called this number from a landline the lady who answered it said that I had to call from my cell, not a landline, she said her name is Dr. Sandra Acknis. What I want to know is how do these people get my cell number and what is nothing being done to stop these scams. Is this a way of acquiring innocent peoples bank account details? What I find amazing is the fact that this woman actually answers the call and gives her details quite willingly. What is Nokia doing about this this!!!

    I recieved an sms that I've won R195000 in Nokia 2012 promotions and a Nokia E72. I was pin Nk22 and was to call some Roselyn Jacobs on 0793946339. They've made me buy telkom prepaid cards and now want me to pay R2880.00 for insurance. That's when I figured it's a scam.
