I received a sms from +27886021828 saying i have won a R175.000 on the Nokia Yearly promo with a ticket number 5822K and the contact person is Mrs Thando- 071 099 7103. Called the person and was advised to buy a R110 airtime and give the voucher number and they will contact me but because i had used the voucher in my phone first i was never contacted. Today when i called for a follow-up the lady(Thando from Nokia supposedly) was very agressive but what is bothering me is that WHY IS NOKIA as big business as they are , would not stop the SPAM.
Imean this has been happening for over a year ( tracked your previous HP complaints on the NET ), the least that you should do is to send an sms / advert or billboards advising your customers of this BLUNDER or else you will LOOSE your customers. I told my family, Facebook friends etc and about to share this horrifying experience with the MEDIA liaison from from one of your competitors. Not much help i received from your call centre agent Renee-0861 166 542. This is poor service and serves your business negative PERSONALITY.
I received an sms at 3 o’clock this morning stating that I have won R450,000-00 with my Nokia mobile number with ticket number 0166P and I must call Lucia Khumalo on 0712599735 to claim my prize. I called at 10 o’clock and the lady said I must call back in 3 minutes she must check if this ticket number is valid. I called back and she confirmed that it is valid, and that I must buy airtime worth R275-00 and sms her the pincode in order to activate the claim.
LUCKILY I started to google Nokia scams and found that this is in fact a big scam. It is just cruel for people to do this. My mother is currently unemployed, and I was looking forward to help her with this so-called money I won. Please warn other people about this ! !
