    That's quite a long SMS And seems to be initiating from Hotmail as well. The email address quoted inside is from Gmail, there is no link to an official Nokia website and they promise you lots and lots of free money.

    Why exactly are you confused? It is a scam, you should delete the message and forget about it.

    Because Nokia is a known brand, while EmailFrauds-WeTakeYourMoney Co. is a less known one.
