Nokia Yearly Promotion — lottery scam
At about 05h51 on 04 september 2010 I received an sms ssaying:
"congratulations!! Your no. Was among the lucky winners on the nokia yearly promotion. You won, r250, 000. Ticket no. 0166p. Call your claim agent mr maurice anderson on [protected]. For your cash prize immediately from 08 am to 60 pm. "
This sms was sent from a cellular number [protected]. Both these numbers are active. What alerted me to a possibility of ascam is that:
1. I do not use a nokia cellular phone;
2. I have not entered an lottery competitions; and
3. The sms contains numerous grammatical, spelling and poor writing skills errors.
In south africa we have a rica legislation that requires all cellular phone numbers to be registered. Can then these cellular phone numbers not be traced to their registered owners to prosecute these fraudsters. Secondly, to establish as well how do they get access to the contact details of recipients of these devious sms.
