2.Winners must know that the money won is very huge and as such should try as much as possible to keep their wins strictly confidential until the said funds has been received. This is to avoid impersonation or double claims which we have experienced in previous draws.
After reading some complains in the same regard, I am now in doubt. Is this true that Nokia UK are having us receiving this money or is this a scam?

Please read the whole thread carefully, these messages are frauds committed by criminals intent on stealing your money.
(1) You will only win Nokia competitions if you enter one, and a Nokia promotion would be run by your local Nokia sales unit, you would not hear from the Nokia sales unit in a different country (except where a single office operates Nokia services in a several countries, the Baltic states being a good example of this).
(2) Nokia never uses free e-mail addresses like 'live.co.uk'.
(3) Nokia would never ask for money to secure delivery or a prize, which these frauds usually demand.
These frauds can obtain your personal details from anywhere, including any companies that you have bought goods from or any web site that you have signed up to. You are advised to treat your personal data with extreme care.
