Nokia Yearly Promotion / scam

1 South Africa Review updated:

I reiceived an sms on my mobile phone that my number has won R250 000.00 in the Nokia Yearly Promotion and that I must call Mr Martin Morgan and give my ticket no to claim my money. I asked him to e-mail me proof that I realy won the money and he e-mailed me a certificate that said that I have won in the Nokia lottery. He told me to e-mail him all my details. He called me and asked me if I could come to the U.K. to sign the papers I told him no. He called again and told me he has e-mailed me a letter telling that I have to pay R1134 for the avidavit from the U.K. high court. Thank goodness I went on to Nokia's website and became aware of the scam.

    I received the same sms this morning and after calling Patricia Dube and hearing a baby in the background and a very sleepy or disinterested "Nokia" rep I decided to do a google search. These people should be prosecuted.

    I just received a msg frm number +27823406835 and it said my mobile no has won R250, 000 in Nokia Yearly Promotion. Ref No (FA286) and for claim call Brenda Nkosi on (0739429526). I really think that these people are disgusting and should be punished for this.

    Received a similiar SMS from +27796166853 stating that I should phone Mark Morris on 0718224270.
    This is obviously a scam, if Sim cards have to be RICA'd can these people not be traced and prosecuted ? Can you a charge be layed ?
