    I got the same one just now with the same text only another phone number was stated : +44 [protected].
    Unfortunately scammers nowadays makes it non exiting to get messages like this as we do expect it to be nothing.

    But thought I would check it up with you guys anyway.

    my dad got the same message today! don't send the money. we're from Malta as well. but for god sake don't send the money! its a scam!
    obviously the email address isn't genuine cos its a hot mail account and big companies don't use bloody hot mail would they?
    someone sh0uld inform the company that they're using their company for scams cos it gives them a bad name.

    Ignore these emails, no one is a winner if this was the case I think that NOKIA will close it's door within a month as all these 500, 00USD giving them away free. Do not write back on this email because as it's name implies in our language its a fake email. Always be careful with you identy and emails.

    I also received an sms this morning at about 7.45am while driving to work saying that I have won USD500.000 in the ongoing NOKIA UK PROMO. Tel no to call back on is +[protected]. What I cannot understand is that my mobile is showing that the sms was received at 11.41am.
    Yesterday, which was a Sunday, my mobile rang at 11.36am & stopped immediately without giving me chance to answer. There was no number. What I think is that who sends these sms`s first tries the number to check if it is a correct mobile no & then sends the message.
    Insomma take care u sahha!
