Nokia Mobile Reward / sms / iternet scam

Papua New Guinea Review updated:
4.2
I received an sms out of the blue saying that I had won 110, 000 pounds and that I had to email and then call +[protected]. What made me suspicious was that there were a lot of grammatical errors on the verification form and in order to get the price I had to pay for postage. When I tried to call the numbers given, the voice on the other side sounded surprised and hung up on me.

Seems like a scam.

» Verify the account with Emirates internet.
» Surely Nokia have their own domain/mail server, and will not use any public email.
» Verify the tel # and it's authenticity/ account in the corresponding country.
» If it's a genuine scam ... teach them a lesson! hehehehh...
» If it's not... Congratulation! hehehh...

Please read the following that I found on Fraudwatchers.org. Note that, in this case, the perpetrators may have been from the country of Nigeria. However, it appears that virtually anyone can use these phone number and email tricks to scam unknowing victims. Please be careful!

Yeah, it's a scam.

Nigerians are discovering free Net-based SMS services and using them for their scamming activities.

Note the phone number: +447045744545 -- The +4470 numbers are 'personal' or 'follow-me' numbers, which redirect to some other number, anywhere in the world. They are free, with the callers paying all the costs. Scammers love them, because they appear to be in the UK number rather Nigeria.

Similarly the @uk2.net email address... this is free and anonymous, and anyone, anywhere in the world, can get one.

Any time you get a message involving lots of money from someone you don't know, it's a safe bet that it's a scam. If it also involves a +4470 phone number and a free anonymous email address, it's guaranteed.
