I have recieved a similar email and I was so concerned whether it is a scam or real. I emailed the person, Paul Richardson of 2 Queen Anne's Gate London SWIH 9AA United Kingdom.

I was emailed the Verification Confirmation Requirement mail and the Payment Release Form and send back so my prize money of 110, 000 pounds could be processed.

I seemed so real and I don't know what to do. When I asked if my prize money could be deposited into my account instaed of paying the huge delivery fee. I was advised, its not possible because of regualtions. I have to pay the delivery fee of almost 400 pounds which is equivalent of 1700 papua New Guinea kina.

I have emailed the British High Commission in Papua New Guinea for verification but have not heard from them yet.

I want to know if this is a scam or real. I cannot pay for deliver, unless I know its genuine. I still have not sent back the Verification Conformation Requirement mail and the Release Form yet.

The Promotion coordinator's contact in Uk is Phon: +44 704 575 7280 and fax : +44 700 601 2913.

If it is a scam I am not worried but it just not right for people to prey on the unsuspecting. If I have won a prize, well its luck at its best.

I have also been sent similar mail from one Dr. Mark Eastwood, the mail claims that he is Nokia Chief Financial Officer.After reading through some comments i have concluded that this is a scam, because i believe there cant be more than one financial officer as there are other names claiming to be Chief Financial Officer.
I want to believe that Nokia is in support of this scam, if not why wont they have gotten a solution to it or at least check mate the people behind this.Nokia is too big a company to let this fly and you will be doing your ardent customers a realy big favour by addressing this issue.
I would like to be updated on whatever actions or steps Nokia would be taking to combat this scam, my email address is olaolu101975@yahoo.co.uk and my phone number is +234 802 3078828.
