NOKIA MOBILE PROMO

To whom it may concern

I have received an sms about a promotion going on in which a money prize is won if your number is selected through a computer ballot system. On receiving this sms one has to send an e-mail to nokia_pro@live.com which I did. Below I am coping the reply they sent me and asking you if this is truly valid and whether it is safe to send the required scan and the form.

Regards
Michela-Marie Mifsud

Re: NOKIA MOBILE PROMO

It's a well-known hoax which, by the way, has nothing to do with connectivity.

At best nothing will happen. At the worst your identity will be stolen by criminals.

Leave well alone.

@ijiym-

Sorry for sounding rude, but you have all the time in the world to wait for a reply, but do not have time to read the other posts on this thread... If you can spare some time doing this even now.. you will save lot of your time...(and probably money..)

 

In short, just keep away from such silly mails/messages.. and do not provide any personal details.. Instead of getting something for FREE.. you will loose all your hard earned too...

These hoaxes are just so OBVIOUS that anyone who gets suckered into them deserves everything they get. I'm sorry if I sound overly harsh and intolerant but it is just beyond me how people can hand over things like bank account details and passports to complete strangers and not expect things to go wrong. Tell me, if it was really Nokia organising something like this, would they be using a yahoo, hotmail, gmail or whatever e-mail address? Come on....
