Nokia or voda have absolutely nothing to do with you receiving this message. You were simply randomly selected by scammers than had no clue as to what phone you had!

Like all obvious spam just delete it and forget about it.

Hi Steve, I received have a similar message today telling me to respond. Unfortunately I had expected it as there are reports all over the net of this activity on the rise significantly.
Under the Australian SPAM Act 2003 sending and receiving SPAM messages on an Australian website or sending SPAM messages to an Australian citizen is a serious offence with a penalty up to AUD$220,000 - $1.1 million.

"It is now easier than ever to report spam email and SMS messages you receive. You can do this quickly and easily in two ways:

For SMS, forward the message to the Spam SMS service

(You will be billed the standard rate charged by your mobile phone provider for sending an SMS message)

For email, forward the message to the Spam Intelligence Database


Important note:
When forwarding an email message, please do not change the subject line of the message or add additional text.The ACMA will only contact you in relation to a report if it requires further information to assist it in its anti-spam activities."

My sms was from and reads "Just won 750,000 pounds in NOKIA UK MOBILE PROMO.For claim send Name,Address,Mobile No & Occupation

 

Retyped above exactly as is.  Received it today - 28th May, 2011 at 3:58:34pm.  I live in Trinidad. West Indies.

 

Have to admit I almost started smoking again when I saw it.  How the hell did they get my no?  I bet some idiots actually send the money.  I have seen comments about this scam on the net dated since 2008 !!!.  Nokia must be truly fed up of this by now.

Re: Is there any NOKIA UK promo going on?

You haven't won a thing. It's a scam. If you have won anything they would just post the cheque to you with no questions asked.

Re: Is there any NOKIA UK promo going on?

@moderator pls u should stop removing and hiding the scam emails cuz wat they are doing is evil they dont deserve any respect unless u also have ur own personal reasons. And i strongle belive dat there is someone who has access to my personal infor here on (nokia site) and they are the one behind all this cuz this is the place they got my email and my phone number. Nokia should do something about the people they gave access to peoples personal information cuz they are the once behind all this. Is gud to say the truth. THANKS

Re: Is there any NOKIA UK promo going on?

The scammers get no respect whatsoever from Nokia, Nokia issued the following public statement for the benefit of members of the public affected by these issues:

 

http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/t5/News-and-Announcements/Nokia-responds-to-hoax-e-mails-and-SMS...

 

You should rest assured you that Nokia has NEVER shared any Discussions members' personal data with any organisations or individuals involved in these criminal activities. The scammers use the names of numerous global brands to try to trick members of the public, including Nokia, Microsoft, AOL, Coca-Cola, Citibank et cetera. None of these companies is involved in these activities, and you don not have to be a member of any service offered by any of these companies to receive them.

 

The best way to avoid scams of this nature is to be very careful who (companies, websites etc.) you give your contact details to, and never publish your contact on internet forums, blogs and so on.

Re: Is there any NOKIA UK promo going on?

Haven't you read the complete thread before putting up your query ? The answer is already mentioned in more than one posts... If you have won some amount, why do they want YOU to deposite money ? 

Just think that you never received the mail ...
