    Fully agree with Anson, my son received the same 350, 000 euro winnings news. Other keywords are GSM GLOBAL / MOBILE SWEEPSTAKES, BARCELONA, NOKIA/GSM, N92. Letter originated from a 'claims agent' named Dr. JAMES WALTER. Numbers for contact purposes are +34-693-222-124,
    + 34-657-348-195 (fax). Also contacted by SMS from mobile phone (message centre )by gsm13annual, no. +381-650000900 (serbia ?).
    They also directed my son to a legitimate website, www.globalmobileawards.com .
    I am sure the genuine site and Nokia will have interests in putting these guys out of business! good luck,
    Dave

    I'm quite shocked too. I got an sms that said I received 1 million euro which meant 2 million over SGD. Biblically, I don't believe in easy money. However, if it is true I won it, I'd be happy becasue I cna take my girl out on a super cool date and finally use some money to help the poor. THen again, if it is a real scam, I pray God will reveal this person and stop Him. AMEN! GOd be our Vindicator!

    Hey Guys i recieved the same thing from this gsm Global mobile sweepstakes saying i won 350, 000 euros they even sent me a certificate to validate the winnings.
    Is this a legit sweepstakes or just another scam ? I also keep getting spam emails from AFRICA as well, so i keep deleting them and they keep sendindg them.
    I havent entered any sweepstakes so i know this must be a scam.
    Also if it is legit they wouldn't be asking for money up front before the supposed winnings are sent.
    Reaks of being a scam.I hope they catch these crooks.

    Regards

    Bill P
