This morning I got a nice SMS message that I had won the lottery! From : +44 7769 605505 Message : CONGRATULATIONS! Your Tel.No was selected and won 250,00 UK sterling in NOKIA NEW YEAR Promo. To claim send email to email@example.com our tel. +44 7005 938190 Interestingly enough, I live in NZ. I don't own a Nokia personally, But Nokia's are the most popular phone here, so it is definitely conceivable that they get a pretty good hit rate with people who do own Nokia phones, and so continue on through. Usually these things aren't scams persay. They just request Birth Certs etc. Basic identity theft.
