    I received a sms on my motorola this morning at 6:27 am from [protected] congratualting me that I was among the luncky winners on the NOKIA YEARLY PROMOTION. It reads - You have won R95, 000.00, ticket number 0166P - call Mrs Memory Dube on [protected] to claim for your cash prize.
    When I phoned them on arrival at work they wanted my banking details etc - told them I do not give such information out over the phone and wanted to know where in CT are the offices of this promotional company - the phone was kindly put down in my ear!!! THIS IS TOTALLY A MAJOR SCAM IN MY EYES but I sure could do with the money!!

    There is no such organization located in the UK, she is in fact a lowlife African advance fee criminal who will steal your money and identity . Stay away from this scammer.
