Nokia Mobile Lottery / fraud

1 Malta Review updated:

Hi i'm from malta and i'm 23 years old, just to say to people to be aware, because I received a message on my mobile that I won the nokia mobile lottery of 500, ooo pounds ! I contacted them by email and told me that I should go to the uk to get the prize or pay courier services ! I knew it was a fraud : imagine if I went to the uk, they would use me for human trafficking for sure ! This is what they sent me when I replied :

    Nokia Mobile Lottery - They are at it again
    New Zealand

    I was lucky enough to get a text from these people, but before parting with my money, did a search online. Beware people they are at it again!!!

    Hi there,

    Even I received, this morning the 16th of March. Same message. Obviously I would really like to have 500, 000, but usually you can't find these growing on trees :-D

    I'm in Malta too, so there might be other Maltese who received it too. Too bad if they decide to use the courier!
    With 500GBP you could get a 40 foot container from England right to your door step, not a piece of paper!

    Watch out Maltese People!

    Noel
