I have sent all my details and have been verified as the lucky winner of 350, 000.00 Pounds. I made transfer fee and was informed by my bank taht my account has been credited but have to wait for a week because it is a promotional winning. Your comments are spoiling the mind of real winners and stop if you are not true winner.

Sony Erricsson should lodge the report with police in UK from where the hoax call is coming as phone number starts from +44 that is UK code. Some one is misusing the name and goodwill of Sony Erricsson and this is the moral duty of Sony Erricsson to take take legal and police action against the culprits and protect the loyal customers from being cheated.

don't ever believe them cause it's fake. how can a large company ask money from you? and such prize is quite big enough with so many winners. it's one tactic to get money from you.before releasing money confirm first from the real company in which way you are safe.

by the way, they sent me also the message. and i ignored it coz i know it's a hoax. the number they used is 447024052785. they can't fool a Filipina like me. just think about it, the supposedly company is asking money from you when it is the one that is supposedly awarding you a prize. something wrong isn't it?

I have also recieved a similar message and tried contacting them on the number given but no one picked up the call . I am eager to know if this is all a hoax . If so then Sonyericsson should take this up very strongly and get the culprits arrested . Its spoiling the image of Sony Ericsson .

Sony Ericsson has send me back a mail regarding this as too be an hoax! So you shouldn't be sanding anything of your personal varification!

The only thing is that I don't get it where did the get my cell number and how do they know I have bought a Sony Ericsson?
The only one that knows all of this is my mobile provider!

Even I too received same message to my cell. My option was Diplomatic Consignment Delivery and I was supposed to pay deliver charges. As soon as they arrived India, they called us and asked to pay 2lacs as tax in addition to the delivery charges. They asked us to deposit this money in their account. Please let me know how far it is true...

Some body is doing in the name of sony ericsson company. Sony Ericssion Comapny has to take care of this...
