Nokia / lottery scam

1 South Africa Review updated:

I have received a sms that I have won 600 000.00 euro and a cell phone. I replied back with the claim form. I was later on e-mailed by dhl, saying that I am responsible for shipping cost.

Reading other e-mails on nokia web sites, I realize this is all a scam.

    I was notified by sms regarding my winning a certain amount in pounds on the ongoing nokia mobile promo. The notification directed me to call +447031984788 or email nokia60 (at) london.com. This notification has cause sleepless nights and mental torture regarding such alleged claim for a prize won. Now if possible, please let me know through my email address the truth and authenticity of such promo and how and where i could formally file a complaint regarding this fraudulent acts. Please, if you may, inform nokia uk regarding this matter and verify the numbers stated for possible entrapment and further legal action if in case.

    Thanks.

For claims I shall call +44 7031910658 or e-mail nokiapromo55@yahoo.com. This is for sure a Fake, how do I get more details of post a more serious complaint about this.
