be aware of these scams because 1rst
Nokia will never ask any peny to deliver any promotion .
The wording and preparation of schdules do not reflect a proffecional company.
I hpoe that Nikia company will take this issue seriously and trace these scams to punish these cheaters and to be hanged in order to safe other people who will be stucked in these scams.
I have received exactly same scam and unfortunately dint know much about him. However before it was too late, after discussing with my friends, I called my bank and asked them not to authorize any transaction without my permission. I also sent an email to these people saying I know its a scam. We really need to take more caution against such people who make a living out of robbing innocent people.
I too got a message from
+2348071272065 saying that my mobile number has won me the sum of 1000000 pounds not dollers on this year nokia porom.
I wonder if it is true or not. But I do believe that the world is not so generous that much. Nor do i think I am foolish enough to call the number given above. SO BE CAREFUL.

I did but the diference is that I am spanish and could tell that guy was liying...he just want your money...is a way of making money. or why they always use mobiles in diferent countries. If you are in India call Uk. If you are in Qatar Spain. if you are in Uk call Us...is all a lie to get your deteils and some cash.
