Listen everybody out there… THIS IS A SCAM INDEED! My work mobile phone is not a NOKIA phone and still recieved a text message telling us we’d won 2million UK pounds and to send Name , Age and Ref.No. to nokia.uklondon @w.cn or email@example.com
Didn’t even give me a Ref.No. to include even if I DID fall for it!? I recieved a similar text on my personal phone around this time last year (2010)and upon contacting Nokia about it was urgently informed not to reply or have anything to do with it as it was and is a scam. replying could also (after doing some research)render your phone a zombie or give it a virus etc. Who knows what the real agenda behind this is?
I recieved a message this morning saying, CONGRATULATIONS YOUR NUMBER WAS AMONG THE NOKIA YEARLY PROMOTION AND YOUV’E WON R450’000.. TO CLAIM GIVE REF NO 0155GP AND CALL 071 733 1585.
I THOUGHT TO MYSELF…IF I DIDNT ENTER ANYTHING WHERE DID THEY GET MY NUMBER, MUST BE A SCAM, BUT THEN RCENTLY THERE WAS A COMPETION FOR NOKIA-SPIN THE WHEEL.
A LOAD OF NONSENSE AS WELL, SO I THOUGHT I WOULD CHECK IT OUT..TURNS OUT I WAS RIGHT THAT IT IS INDEED A SCAM. I AGREE WITH THE OTHER PEOPLE, NOKIA NEEDS TO BE INFORMED ABOUT THIS ASAP! IT TRULY IS CRUEL TO MAKE PEOPLE THINK THAT THEY’VE ACTUALLY WON SOMETHING IN A WORLD WHERE WE ALL STRUGGLE.. SURELY SOMEONE KNOWS HOW TO GET HOLD OF THESE SCAMMERS??!!
Just straight out ignore firstname.lastname@example.org and report it to NOKIA.
