    Yes, I almost fell for this Nokia fraud/scam thing. A certain Mr Victor (cell phone number: 073 338 6425) told me that my price of R260, 000 will be handed to me in Cape Town, Nokia Building, 107 Mandela Drive. Luckily I am wide awake!!! Beware people Mr Victor is a con artist!!!

    I also got the sms claiming I've won R195.000 with ref # 019NKP, and that I must call Mrs Ndeya, when I called a nigerian guy answered and said I must buy Telkom recharge voucher and call him back to transfer the funds, and he said I must sms my physical add and the name, the sms was sent from a # 078 173 9362 but the number I was to call was 071 805 9163, Nokia please you need to save poor and desperate people out of these scammers

    25/03/2011 this scam is still circulating. I was one of the lucky ones to check first and so I have not bought the airtime yet.
    The sms read that I had won 175 000.00 with the name and number of the person that I should call. I did call this person, Bridget Masina, who advised me to purchase 3x110.0 Vodacom Vouchers in order to get my prize. Her no is 0786373307. Please be aware!!

    I just received an sms that I have won R95000. I phoned the number 073 816 2862 and the guy I spoke to said that I need to send my ID number Bank details and my name... I almost did this as I could realy use the money. Then I decided that I will first see what promo's Nokia have. This is ###. Why can we not do something about these thiefs????????
