    Message from moderator of Nokia UK:


    We have received the following statement from Nokia about this issue:

    Nokia regrets the inconvenience caused to our customers by the action of the individual/s who have perpetrated these hoax messages. Please ignore these messages and do not pass them on.

    hi, i received an SMS from the number +2348081317715 stating that my number had won 131900 GBP. and for claiming call on this

    number +447045730983.

    Then i did as i was instructed. I had paid 595GBP to DHL for bringing the cheque to UAE. The vary next day i received as SMS that my courier has been blocked b'coz i am non national to UK. The Customs of UK revenue has stoped the delivery order and also stating that NOW i have to pay 1500 GBP that is AED 15.000. nad believe me that is alot of money.

    This was all so true i mean the E-mail, certificates, DHL payment and the case number in customs also.. u can check this link
