Dear miss / mr
I was in dubai for one week and received this text on my uae mobile (Congrats: your mobile number has won for you the sum of gbp 147000 pounds on this year nokia promo, for claims email: [protected]@live.com and call +[protected])
So i called and a man confirmed this text and advices me to e - mail my details information along with the winning number, i did send my name and phone number, and then i received calls to rush me up and more details e - mail to fill the claming form, all the time nokia logos are used, now the final e - mail i got after sending a copy of my passport and a residant address, they sent me this note :
Note: your funds are coming from the nokia payment center assigned to your network in the uk and this means that you are dealing with the pay - center uk office only and not the united arab emirates office. Your courier payment is going to be sent to the dhl courier company in the uk who will be delivering to you in 24hours as soon as they get a confirmation of your payment. And any attempt to create problems for your courier service delivery, you will be disqualified from your category and might fore fit your winnings and be regarded as not the rightful owner of that mobile number. So you are advised to act as instructed so that your won prize can get to you at the stipulated time.

They said to me that you have been instructed by the ad - hoc committee to make the payment of £290. 00 pounds (Two hundred and ninty gbp) via western union money transfer outlet close to you, to effect your payment to the account officer in charge of the delivery of your parcel with the information below, so as to enable them initiate the delivery of your prize winnings to your stated address.

So befor i make payment i am kindly seeking your help to advise if this is a fake or ture

Thank you
Best regards

    Alright guys now listen to me. If you get a message saying you won money (like i did) from nokia in UK then what is the most obvious thing you should do? Call nokias customer support in London! I did that and the guy told me it was a scam and that i should just delete the msg. If you dont believe me then just call nokia customer support in london at +[protected] and the numbers toll free so no harm done to your phone balance

    Hi, its seems this hoax is going on for some time. Wish these people can get caught now. Just got the sms, AGAIN, as I got it earlier this year. If I am a winner why cant they phone me, instead they are sending out these sms' according to the cellphone listings! If we all just learn to read our sms' properly then we will notice all the gliches: I AM NOT A NOKIA USER FIRSTLY! SAMSUNG :)
    And the fact that the promo is based in UK, there should be a UK land like number and not cell number. I received my sms from my South African code! I will not call them as its a waste of time. Previously with the other sms I did call and I could hear this man speaking through a voice changer ( A software programme can be usedto do this!). People, please do not send money if you are a winner in any competition! YOU CANT GIVE MONEY TO GET WINNINGS!
    PS. Can some one please forward me their email address so I can give them a piece of my mind!
    [email protected]
    Thanks People!

Ref NO.NKP14 for claims Email your Names & Ref No. to:[email protected] & Tel+[protected]." I live in New Zealand & when I called the number the guy was like "Hello, oh, um, Nokia Promo congradulations, where are you calling from?" When I told him, he asked what the time was in our country. I replied "1840 hours". He moved on to say "if you e mail us your reference number & passport details, we'll get back to you via e mail." Then I thought, "hows about a...NO!..." hahaha what Circus did you CLOWNS escape from!

    I also received an SMS from UK No:+[protected] claiming to be NOKIA PROMO and the message mentioned my mobile number won Sterling Pounds 415, 000. I emailed them and they asked for my winning number and address, after giving them the info they wanted they congragulated me on winning the sum and told me either to come to London before 20 August 2011 to collect the cheque or send them the courier charges of Sterling Pounds 580.
    They have also attached the passport copies of one REID Morgan whose address is Prince Court business park, 11 wapping lane London E1W 2DA and the letter has been signed by one MARCUS WALLENBERG whose telephone number is +[protected] and above all the NOKIA address is as mentioned being 2nd Floor Berkley Square House, Berkley Square W1 6BD LONDON.
    The deadline to collect the prize is 20th August.
    I sincerely hope NOKIA does something about these FAKE prizes which are really disturbing our LIFE.
    Thanking you and hope for some stern ACTION from NOKIA

    I live in New Zealand, I've received the same message. I decided to search on the internet and found this website which is great to let people know more about this bad people. Firstly, I got a message from Germany, but the phone number that you have to call is from another country, which is not from UK. Secondly, I have no idea how they found out my number because I don't even have NOKIA, I have VODAFONE. So don't believe in them please!!!

    I guess they started attacking facebook users now. I received a mail in my face book account a couple of days ago, that i have won EUR $530, 000. And then was told to send my personal info to their email address. I did. But then I started feeling something isn't right. It was too good to be true. And that's how I came upon this website . And I am not surprised at all from the response it got here. So I am done with this.
