Orange Telecom / Phone fraud

100% 21
Contact information:
Nationwide Bank
I received a sms from a number telling me my mobile number has been confirmed as a winner of March 2009 Orange Telecoms Gmail Mobile draw of GB532 450.00 and that I should send an email to thomasteves@gmail.com to claim.
I did it and received a email from him asking information like my name etc.
He send me another email that I should send to Nationwide Bank and they would keep the money in a temporary bank for me.

Dont get your hopes up. Its al a scam.
My husband called the guy from Orange and the guy from the bank and guess what, its the same guy.
So dont fool yourself with something like this.

I have just received the same sms informing me that my mobile number has been confirmed as a winner in the 2009 Orange Live Gmail Mobile Draw. To claim email thomasteves24@gmail com. I have emailed him and is still awaiting his reply. Thanks to the comment of E. Marais I will not be pursuing the matter further. I suggest that they bring the matter to the attention of Gmail as their name is being used in the scam.
