I received an sms stating: " Congratulations!!! Your cell number was among the lucky winners in the Nokia Yearly Promotion 2011/2012. You won R95 000, ticket number e109! Contact Mr Hazem your claims agent on 0838630096 for your cash prize. Thanks, the management." I then phoned this person the following day who then told me to purchase 3 R200 telkom vouchers and send him the pin numbers for these vouchers as well as my bank account number. I then smelled a rat. I did not do as he asked. He then poned me once again, asking whether I have done so and insisted on me to keep this a secret! I told him I thought this is a scam and he assured me that it was not and he then sent me the following: "My personal details - Mr Abbey.D Hazem. ID # 6304115357089. Employee #: D422-007. Company- Nokia Yearly Promotion Centre. # 106 Long street Cape Town. Reg # D04-6675. I then googled this and found that this is indeed a scam!!!
