nokia uk / nokia sweepstakes

1 United Kingdom Review updated:

I have received an sms from NOKIA claiming that I have won in a competition,nokia sweepstakes.

I have won some money but for me to get this money I have to send them money for the fee for the courier service of my choice,FEDEX UK in the amount of 490pounds.

The person that have been emailing me is a DR. Floyd who claims he is the cashier for NOKIA in the promotional department and he is responsible for sending the money to the winners.

I have never heard of such a competition and I need to know wether or not this is a legitimate competition and not just another scam.

Can someone please have a look into this and get back to me.

I have been send by Dr. Floyd a deed of guarantee to show me that it is legit. The barrister Alan Brian who works for the NOKIA promotional department he is the legal advisor,guarantees me that this deed of guarantee for this competiton is legitemate.

    I had received the same message from NOKIA NIGERIA by Mr Issa Megemu and Dr. Floyd also part of it.

    I got the same deed of guarentee from him. So it seems that they are fraud. Seelng all the mails and personal calls it seems to me genuine. I lost my 360 GBP as courier charge I have send to Nokia Nigeria and now they are asking me to send 1870 GBP for Inland Revenue Tax.

    Especially Nokia Company have to let know all the people about this defrudment...
    They are using their company name so that they have to responsible for this issue....

    All the people are believed because of NOKIA company...

    They are very bad and they should go to hell ..
    why the god let them to live in this world...

    i got a text message that i had won 182,000.00 pounds from nokia sweepstakes promo and emailed them, i gave info like my name and number, then i got a call from a man saying that hes Dr. Anthony Floyd and that im a winner and that i didnt sand a copy of my id or passport and should pay via western union for my courier service fee. i asked him about his accent when he went on about how hes american and now has british citizenship (it was a nigerian like accent). at that point i know it was a lie, i told him i have a problem with what hes saying and that i wasnt gonna send anything (im english and i live in qatar so i know what most accents sound like) and i know the fee for DHL and FEDEX. and its no way that much money (490 pounds), he said it was a spacial package bla bla bla and i told him i will only pay the fee once i see that package myself and theres no way i will just go to western union. he hung up in my face.
    i went online to check for the competition yesterday and when i didnt find it i know it was a scam, but i google searched it today, just now after that call and realised that so many ppl form everywhere got the same text message!

    I also received the same emai two days ago from a Mr. Anderson J. Maxwell who claims to be the Nokia Cash Officer. What caught my attention was the high cost of delivery because it does not cost that much to send a cheque in an envelope especially when the insurance cover has been paid for by Nokia. The other thing that made me suspicious was the fact that the insurance was paid for by Nokia but not the courier service.

    In the circumstance I've asked them to pay for the courier and I'll reimburse them once I have recived my One Hundred and Sixty Five Thousand Great Britain Pounds. They thought that they could defraud/con me as well but little did they know that I had done my homework.
