Re: NOKIA UK PROMOTIONS PRIZE SMS

This is now bordering on harrasment, they are calling well before 6am and pestering me to send them my details, will someone do somthing about this or I will go to the local press and open up a can of worms that nokia will not like.

It is not nokia that is contacting you so it is impossible for them to stop it. It is scammers that are contacting you and obviously it's impossible for nokia to stop them.

Report the harassment to your network or the police. They may be able to track down the scammers back to the country of origin if they feel it is serious enough.

 

Nokia do not have control of the networks, the police or the world so there is nothing that nokia can do to stop this as they do not have the ability to find the scammers.  That is a job for the police/networks.

 

If it was really that easy for big companies to stop scams don't you think they would have all done it many years ago?  Scammers are often clever moving from country to country before they get caught or operating from countries that have no laws to stop them.

The only way it will stop is if the scammers get caught or people stop being stupid and falling for the obvious scams. Unfortunately the scammers are usually clever and operate from countries where they know they will be safe from the law.

Just like internet scams and email spam people need to be careful with SMS messages too. Like all things in life if it looks to good to be true then it's nearly always false. In the case of these messages common sense has to be used.

Re: NOKIA UK PROMOTIONS PRIZE SMS

It's obviously a lie, perhaps you should have read this thread you posted on?

Just delete it and forget about it. Nokia cannot do anything to stop these scammers.
