Re: Nokia Promo 2013

Do you seriously think Nokia would ask you to reply to an msn.com email address? Of course it is fake. If it sounds to good to be true then it is probably too good to be true.

It is not from info@nokia.co.uk. They have made it look like it is from info.nokia.co.uk. It is easy to do this. If it is really from Nokia why have the asked you to reply to a msn.com email address? 

 

Th purpose of the spam is to trick people like you into giving them your personal information and to either get money from you or to get your bank account details so they can get your money themselves.
