Nokia Owners In India Duped In Phishing Campaign...Offered A Car But End Up Losing A Lot Of Money

Experts Comments (0)
A new smishing campaign, or text message phishing campaign, is targeting Nokia owners in India. These text messages pretending to be from Nokia and state that the recipient has won a lucky draw to win a car or money. These text messages state that the recipient has won either a Tata Safari or 1,260,000 Indian Rupees (roughly £13,500) and must call them to pay 6,500 Rs (roughly £70) in order to collect the prize. The text messages themselves claim to be from " online shopping pvt" and are filled with grammatical errors and other inconsistencies that would make it surprising that anyone would fall for this scam.
