    Hello dherguy,

    Although this is not the correct place for this but let me tell you that please beware of such emails and do not leak out any of your personal details thinking that the mail is genuine.

    I just checked my spam folder (Glad that I have it for my protection) and found a similar fake email as below

    from Microsoft 2008 Online Promo <fashionoutlet@bellnet.ca>
    reply-to claimsgamboard@hotmail.co.uk,
    to info@microsoft.org,
    date Feb 12, 2008 5:52 PM
    subject Hello!!!

    Congratulations!!Your email I.D was selected and you have therefore
    been awarded the sum of ₤500,000GBP by the Microsoft Online 2008
    promotion. contact the Agent via email below for further instruction.

    E-mail: claimsgamboard@hotmail.co.uk,

    Thank you.
    Long before I had watched a news report about such circulating emails. They seem to get personal informations and then they tell you to show some bank details and open specific accounts. All in all they are surely not Genuine.

    So Beware and do not give away your details.

    Hi Pankaj,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Although this is not the correct place for this but let me tell you that please beware of such emails and do not leak out any of your personal details thinking that the mail is genuine.
    Points taken. What happend was I couldn't submit a report through NOKIA Malaysia website. For me, at least do something about it with a hope that maybe it will save some-NOKIAfan-body. One thing led to another which brings me to this forum.

    So Beware and do not give away your details.

    Re: Nokia Ongoing Promotion

    if it would be Nokia, why would it use yahoo address ?

    If I would have won all stuff that is said my email to have won, I would have quite many BMW's and plenty of more cash in my account.

    Re: Nokia Ongoing Promotion

    Just to stress Jukka's point.

    This "you have won cash!" email is scam.

    Do not send any information to any email address in this scam email, nor you should not call the phone numbers.

    There are plenty of things in the text of that message that just scream out "scam". First, the spelling. There are several mistakes and signs of rush. Then there is the fact that all Nokia email addresses (as far as I know) are "...@nokia.com", so "@nokiapaymentoffice.com" is clearly not official. And I have to ask, did you participate in any contest related to Nokia so that you could even think you might have won? So the message you got is clearly a scam, like many others mentioned in other thread on this forum.

    There are 1000's of this kind of HOAX happening now a days for eg : http://www.f-secure.com/hoaxes/hoax_index.shtml And lot of frauds are also happening here in India and people get cheated. Please make sure that you dont give your personal info / Credit card details, Bank account numbers and so on to any one - other than the trust worth sources.

    Exclamation Re: 2008 NOKIA Award Promotion?

    On receiving such mails, just ask few questions to yourself:

    - Am i eligible for such big money?
    - Am i God gifted?
    - Why would one give me such a big amount even when i am not able to remember in my long past memory that i had helped someone?

    Just follow your mind, not your heart.

    Obviously, it is FAKE - just to get your personal info.
