Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.

Analysis:
These kind of award winning emails in various names and forms are being sent across many people. Nokia lottery is simply a hoax. Nokia does not do any kind of lottery, nor does give away large sums of money in the name of awards. Nokia TMF Award is simply a scam to attract the eager people who believe in fortune lotteries and grab their private bank details to take unfair advantage of it.

Nokia Award Company does not exist. The part of the statement " However, if you wish to decline the receipt of your prize money, you are to notify us on time so that the opportunity will be given to another Nokia phone user." clearly indicates that this story is nothing but a scam. Also, the Nokia TMF Award Logo used in the email is a fake one that was created online at vector-logo.net

Beware of such online lottery scam emails, especially the ones asking for your personal or private details.

Dear josé barreto,

This kind of mails are scams for sure. to confirm it by your self, what you can do is to provide non sensitive information to the mail, and continue communication with them. at certain point they will ask some amount as processing fee, and that amount will be huge, but very less compared to the prize money. At this stage you confirm that it is a scam, Because they can deduct that money from prize money and give you the remaining, but they will not accept for it.

Hi charles,

It is not genuine, and the people who claim to be from the Nokia and other companies are not actually from those companies.
I feel sorry that you have been cheated.

I've received a comunication that I'd won a prize from NOKIA CORPORATION, in London.I'd like to know if it's true, because, in the world like this, is very difficult someone to win something without do work for that.They're asking me my address, my complete name, and so on, in order to send to me such prize and I'm afraid about it.If you could inform to me something about this subject, I'd thank you very much.

Thanks

Hi writer.. I got this mail 2 days back and was wondering whether I have really won and should reply back with my details because I own a new Nokia Lumia 800 phone that was bought a month back.. Then I got a bit of doubt that it would be a scam or hoax.. And as I rightly anticipated, it's a scam.. Thanks for providing the information.. In future if I get any mail like this, first thing I would do is to check your site.. :)
