I did reply to the e-mail and gave them my physical address. I didn't give any bank details though. I wasn't sure if it was a scam or not and now it appears that it is one.What do I do now? Do I need to worry about my safety now that I gave them my address and my mother's address (as my beneficary!)

I received that e-mail in a little bit different form the day before yesterday and i read it just few minutes ago. I didnt reply, because I knew already that the e-mail was bullsh*t.

Anyway, i dont know what happens to them who gave their contact information. I bet nothing happens.

I received this email and thought I would do a search for the company and found this. Obviously a scam, I did not reply.
A company genuinely giving away that much money, would have a much more professionally laid out email and an internet address.
We could all use the money but unfortunately to win money you usually have to actually enter a competition to win money. I didn't enter anything!

They had given me the form to fill all the details and the option to claim prize amount, they have also given me the parcel courier company name parcelflight in UK and I talked to the person and he too given me call in my mobile and told me to transfer the amount in his agent mohmmad sheikh account and then he will deliver the cheque within 72 hours. I had given him all the information.

I have also got that mail two days ago. I have given personal data since I filled the form. The deal is that I obtain the money as long as I send the delivering fee in advance (440 GBP). If this is a complete fraud, it is certainly well done. The logos appear to be original, they are willing to send a certificate of guarantee before getting the delivering fee......????????????

I got the same e-mail. I live in Denmark.
As long as you do not give "the company" your credit card information, you need not worry about the balance in your bank account.

In regards to home adresses for yourself and your next of kin this should not pose a threat to anyone's security, as that information is not secret. Mind you that anyone can look up anyone else's adress for whatever purpose.

I consider telling Nokia about this, as their brand name is being mis-used as a means of credibility, ie to make us believe that we've a millon quid because Nokia say so.

That is clearly a violation of the good name of Nokia.

I also got this email and it is very much a scam, as if it was from a ligitamate company the email wouldnt be sent from a msn gmail yahoo addy etc, it would be sent from the official company nokia, and as I hadnt entered any competition I know its a scam, dont part with your money to them as you will lose your money and no winning cheque will land on your doormat BE WARNED BIG HUGE SCAM!!
