I received the same type of sms, saying that I won 91000 pounds. Decided to check it out first and found these comments. Man, why is Nokia allowing this to continue? These scumbags are playing on people's emotions, especially in times that money is tight. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT AND GET THESE PEOPLE BEHIND BARS!!!

Received the same SMS, so much of this going on at the moment that even if it were genuine I would probably ignore it. Unfortunately I think Nokia are getting a bum wrap on this and that the fault probably lies with the service providers - poor security with people being able to access your details regarding the make and model of your phone along with your phone number.

However for most English speakers the poor grammar and spelling on these solicitations is a dead give away and typical of poor "Nigerian" english as anybody who has received the "nigerian" fax scams, will no doubt attest. To all you scammers out there, Nigerian or otherwise, go for English lessons if you really hope to pull off this sort of scam and be a little more inventive - if we are going to be taken, at least make it a bit more challenging.

HI,

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE IS ANOTHER PERSON HAVING A GO AT THIS MONEY PROMOTION THING. NAME MARK COLE!!! TELEPHONE NUMBER 07031913944. ALSO NOKIA HAVE A NO NAME POLICY WITHIN THEIR COMPANY SO THEREFOR WOULD NEVER GIVE OUT ANY NAMES OF THEIR EMPLOYEES IN AN E-MAIL OR LETTER.


NOKIA WILL NEVER RUN A PROMOTION LIKE THIS EVER AND IF THEY DID WANT YOU TO CONTACT THEM VIA E-MAIL IT WOULD NOT HAVE AN E-MAIL ADDRESS ENDING IN ANYTHING LIKE YAHOO IT WOULD BE 100% NOKIA.COM.

Hi there,

they got hold of my number a little after yours, people :-) And I have received Mr Floyd's e-mail as well as "Bhaskaran" which is posted on this page so there is no need for me to do it again. It's really surprising, not that someone (Nigerian or whatever) is trying his luck but how such a company as NOKIA alowes them doing it. I agree that the most suspicious thing is the e-mail ending on uk2.net and not nokia.com - isn't it a little weird NOKIA having not their own domain :-))) Maybe the scummers must go for computer lessons as well as English, don't you think.

Any way, I thank you for the comments but I also believe there will be people who will not be bothered to read (or doesn't know how to) all we post here.
