I just got an sms saying: “Congratulations your No.is Amoung Lucky Winner u Won R250,000.From Nokia Yearly Promo. With Ticket No.0277p Call Miss Memory Dube For Your Cash Price 0732940369″ -First of all, i typed this exactly as it is on my phone, so the english raised a huge flag in my opinion as Nokia is a world wide company and know how to spell and use grammer. Secondly, i have a blackberry… why would Nokia give my R250,000 when i don’t support them… and lastly, if anyone would have my number, it’d be Vodacom or MTN etc… Not Nokia!
I received the sms saying i won R25 000 in Nokia yearly promotions. I called the number and they told me to buy R275 vodacom airtime. I told the lady but why vodacom when im using mtn sim card. she told me its to activate my prize money. I asked so many questions which she could hardly give me a proper and clear answer. This peolpe just know how to scam people and there are people in this world that would really need that kind of money and buy the airtime to activate their price money.
Since when do a person just receive an sms to say that you’ve won so much money without the company contacting you directly on your cell number so that you can be certain that you did win and its not a scam. Everybody is trying to make a living in this country and i trully hope these people will be cuaght sooner or later and go to jail for what they do. Hope everybody is carefull and dont fall for these tipe of things.
For those who are falling for it, Nokia (or any other world wide company for that matter) would never ask you to send them money in order to recieve a prize. Don’t be stupid people… Report their number so they can be caught
