Look out, here's another SMS Scam

This morning I received a message from my cellphone saying:

"Congrat's ur Sim# Won! 1st prize (1M) + Brandnew unit N95 celfon
Electronic draw from NOKIA CORP.
DTI-NCR Permit # 2424 Subject 2claim Call Now! Mngr Ace Javier ds#"

From where I was seating, I knew immediately that this was a scam. In the first place, I have not joined any contest sponsored by Nokia. So how on earth will I win something from them? DUH!

I thought these things belonged to the past. Ancient history. But no! Oh no, no!
Scammers are still on the prowl waiting for the next victim.

Watch out for these leeches and similar modus operandi.
