    Would it help if in addition to what was said above I would also add: IT IS A SCAM. Report the email as spam to your email provider.?

    And please, stop writing with huge red font.

    There is something wrong at Microsoft's marketing office, it is embarrassing to see how people do not recognize supposedly world-widely known (e-mail) services as Hotmail or Live, but this flaw also applies to Yahoo apparently.
    However the same people immediately manage to find out that there is a http://www.nokia.com, and come here to http://discussion.forum.nokia.com... Fabulous.

    And there are really good search engines like GOOGLE, just type few words from the email you received and you will get the list of SPAMS reported on many sites.

    Re: 2008 NOKIA Award Promotion?

    Do you really think that Nokia would give you that amount of money for nothing? Or even 1 pound for that matter ...

    And do you really think that Nokia would have an internet domain name like nokiaeurope.co.cc ?

    It is spam. Clearly.

    There is a principle of "First thought, best thought"

    And on receiving such letter/email/SMS it is most probably something like "Whoa, it can't be true". Well, it isn't, really.
