Nokia fraud - SCAM - STAY AWAY

I received a sms on 14 August early in the morning  telling me that I won an amount of R250000 from NOKIA and they gave you a ticket number. I phoned and seak to Magaret van der Merwe on 0726734056 and she inform me that I have to buy R275 airtime. After that I had to pay R2200 to get my money. When I pay that amount the suddenly wanted another R4600 which I luckly did not pay yet. What worry me about this is, it is today 23 August 2010 and I still get answer at this number as well as at a number 0827264923. These people claim they are working for NYPC or NOKIA CLAIMS PAYMENTS. I have spoken to six different people now and I  still cannot get clarity on the legalness of this company. Can somebody PLEASE tell me why these people are still up and running. If you need more info please contact me.

    Yep, I received the SMS this monring, LOL. From phone number: 0715184073 Congratulations! Your Mobile number has won you R250,000 on the Nokia/P Rewards. For your payment call Mrs. Nomsa Radebe on 0769108889 8AM-5PM Reward Pin SA11K Actually all the spelling IS correct! LOL... I'm beginning to think that these people answer these "make money" adverts and this is what they have to do... send scam SMS... Oh and this is now to a Vodacom number. Just saying cos it seemed before it was mainly MTN customers? Does mentioning it here help at all, I mean does someone contact these people and tell them to quit it? Glad my common sense tells me to check for hoaxes before responding LOL

    Hi Raymond I received the same e-mail and contact numbers.... Remember that if you have won money, they will deduct any transfers off your winnings. You should never give out any money.

    got a sms at 02h09 this morning that i had won R95000 in the NOKIA YEARLY PROMO. I had to claim it by contacting 0834234769 or send an email to (new tactic as no one else mentioned this?). It came from 0784820172. Decided to google it first. Glad I did so.

    What astonishes is me is that the people who have it in their power to stop this is not doing anything... phoned MTN customer service this morning wanting to inform them of numbers who are sending these scams (all of them on the MTN network) - asked to speak to the manager but was told that she does not take calls(call centre manager does not take calls???), I was not asked for the numbers & told only to delete the sms's or to go to the police station & report it. If it is law to RICA your phone they should have the names & addresses of these people or at least be able to suspend the service of these number - looks to me like they don't care, because in the end these people are using airtime & THE NETWORK IS STILL MAKING MONEY NO MATTER WHAT THE CUSTOMERS ARE LOSING.
