Warning From the nokia website.  Click here!

Okay, let me make this perfectly clear: 


Okay I’m getting tired of this!  Stop asking me if this is real!  Stop asking where the money is!  Stop posting your damn phone numbers! It’s a SCAM, there IS NO money, these are thieves!  Get it through your thick skulls that you didn’t win ANYTHING!

I keep getting comments here saying that people have gotten SMS texts about this scam and asking if it’s true.  People, stop asking stupid questions!  For the last time, it’s not true, it’s a scam!  Don’t post here asking, just read the comments of everyone else!

A lot of people, particularly in India and Pakistan, have been getting SMS text messages promoting this scam. Do not fall for it, do not reply to these text messages! There is no money, they will do nothing but charge you a tax or a fee or a service charge, and then you will never hear from them again!

If you have given money to these people, contact the police immediately.  And kiss your money goodbye, it’s gone.  If you have given them any bank information, contact your bank immediately!  If you have given them any personal information, you’re out of luck.

If you have given them ANYTHING, what on Earth are you thinking?  You know, of course, that you have to actually ENTER a lottery before you can WIN, right?

Never, ever pay money to receive a winning prize.  not in taxes, fees, transfer costs or shipping.  If you do, you deserve to lose it.

    • It’s a scam, you idiot.

      • Troy says:

        Could be a bit nicer in your response dude, your talking to people like a real f&$kwit.

        • “you’re” talking. . . .

          People have been mollycoddled and told it’s okay to be stupid all their lives. Enough of that. I make it perfectly clear that everything on this website is a scam, and specifically tell readers that they are not to post their private information, and yet I still have morons posting their phone numbers, addresses, e-mail addresses, bank account numbers, PIN numbers, mother’s maiden names, work history, etc. When someone is that fucking stupid, they need to be told that they are that fucking stupid. You don’t like it, then start your own anti-scam blog.

          • Sonya says:

            I can’t BEALIEVE people actually fall for this ….. And even after they read all you’ve posted they r still stupid enough to still post their personal info..,, I’m sorry but they ARE STUPID … Stupid is as stupid does no wonder there’s scammer because of dumn ass idiots like all the ones that still don’t get it

      • Jan says:

        Can u be kind enough 2 inform us of wat 2 look for if a person rly has won stop telling ppl dat dey r being scammed

        • Look for mis-spelling in the message, all capital letters, email originating from a free e-mail service like gmail or yahoo. If you didn’t enter a lottery, then you can not have won. Go to the company’s website and confirm if there is indeed a lottery (There usually isn’t). And never EVER give anyone any money in the expectation of receiving your winnings. A legitimate lottery will never require money from you.

      I am srinivas from india for wiining nokia lottery we give me ask for help send the email id is [redacted]

  11. kelli says:

    You may be aware that it’s a scam, but to call people morons and thick headed is just rude!!! some people have never had this message before and may well be excited as they REALLY need the money!! I’m hoping that you are not an actual representative of Nokia, as if you are you should, quite frankly, be fired for being so awful in your response to people out there that have received this message.

    I understand that you must get messages and questions in regards to this all the time. But if your email is listed for this purpose I would have thought a more professional approach would be suitable rather than making people feel like idiots!!

    I have received this message several times, but each time I do come and check the website, just in case.. I am not a moron or thick headed, or a fool!! But do need the money.

    Just because you understand the way in which these scams work and are dealt out does not give you the right to be demeaning and patronizing to others.

    You need learn some lessons in social skills and get the hell off this web site!! People come here for advice, not abuse!!

    I don’t really care if you come back to this message with a crap abusive reply as I don’t know you from Adam, but I just felt that all others that come here and look at your terrible responses when they’re just ‘wondering’ should know that they are not the only one who was made to feel like a total idiot due to your crassness.

    Good day!

    • My, aren’t you in a fine lather this morning?

      Let’s start from the beginning here, shall we? Go back and look at that website. See the top? It very clearly says: “If you got here through a search, then that the e-mail you’re receiving is a scam. Don’t fall for it!” Okay? Now look over at the right side. It very clearly says, “It’s a SCAM!” And goes on to say there’s no money and not to post personal information here. And if you had bothered to actually read the top of the post that you’re so worked up about, I say it AGAIN! In very large, very red letters! Now, I want to ask you, Kelli, what else can I do to alert people that this is just a scam? To what further lengths can I go? Please tell me, because I’m as frustrated as you seem to be. What else will I do to get it through to people?

      Now, I want you to tell me what on EARTH made you even consider the slightest possibility that I might be an employee of Nokia? Have you even looked around this website? I post copies of scams. They pose as investors, Lottery administrators, coca cola lottery, shell lottery, Nokia lottery, girls in refugee camps. All variations of the advance fee fraud scam. I have nearly 5000 examples of these scams here and more every day. My purpose is that someone would come here and see the exact same letter they received, and realize it’s just a scam. For some of the more popular ones, like the one you’re ranting about, I add a warning so that there’s no confusion.

      You’re quite right, many people have never seen this message. Which is why I have this page, because thousands of people every year lose thousands of dollars to these thieves. And you know what? 98% of the people who land here, actually READ the site, figure it out, say “Oh, gee, it’s a scam!” and leave. Some of them are nice enough to leave a note of thanks. I average about a thousand hits a day here, predominantly from India and Pakistan.
      But there are a few who for whatever reason refuse to read the site, refuse to take the warning, and insist on asking where their money is! These are the ones who are dumb enough to fall for this scam. These are the ones who make this scam profitable to the thieves.
      I started like you suggest, gently trying to explain to them, no, it’s just a scam, don’t do this, you will lose your money, you didn’t win. Now listen very closely: IT DOESN’T WORK! These idiots have already disregarded every warning I put on the website. They’re not prepared to listen to yet another one. They get angry with me, they get belligerent, they DEMAND their money. A few have threatened legal action if I don’t provide their money RIGHT NOW. Others post their personal information: e-mail addresses, phone numbers, addresses.
      A very few hopelessly dangerous people posted their bank account numbers, branch numbers, personal pins, routing information! AUGH! This is a public comment forum! Everything is there for someone to totally steal their identity! There’s stupid, and then there special stupid. I have two fellows, one posts his personal phone number upwards of a dozen times a day on multiple scam listings. Another insists on posting all of his bank account information and personal contact information, also about five or six times a day on multiple scam examples. This in spite of repeated warnings and explanations that what they think they’re trying to do is really, really bad. For these two I had to make a special filter that throws their comments right into the trash.

      So it’s like this: If you can’t read the site, if you can’t figure out that the Nokia lottery board is probably not going to use a gmail account for their return address, if you’re going to insist on posting personal information into a public comment forum in spite of being specifically instructed not to, I’m going to assume you’re in the lower two percentile of intelligence. If you’re that stupid, it’s time someone told you so. Interestingly enough, I don’t hear back from those folks. Being nice doesn’t get through to them. A little humiliation does. I’m not running a service center here, and I make no profit off of this. WordPress doesn’t let me advertise, or I would have monetized this site years ago. This is a public service I provide, because I think the people who perpetrate this scam should be put against the wall and shot. If you don’t like the way I deal with people who insist on being scam victims in spite of everything I do to help them, then that’s too damn bad. If you don’t want to be abused, then don’t post your stupid comments asking where your money is and putting up your personal information for everyone to steal!

    • Your number and/or e-mail are just shots in the dark. What they really need are your address and bank account information. That or they want to trick you into sending them money.

    My phone blocks all unknown and blocked numbers so I received an email that I, clearly, knew was a scam! This was because it wasn’t sent as an email but it was sent as a document. I had no idea what it was so I opened it and read it. The document had no logo. I just looked like a plain word document that I can easily type up! Thankful for this website…I can share this with you:


    Also! The name of the person who sent me this message was “Amelia M Smith “. The document was signed as “Jose Morgan”. FAKE!!!!
