Okay, thank you so much for clarifying.Unfortunately, this is a well confirmed scam and you should not respond to this letter nor divulge any of your personal details. Specifically, this scammer is operating a variation of what is commonly known as an "advance fee" scam, in which individuals are contacted and informed of sweepstakes winnings and eventually told that they need to pay a "processing fee" or bank transfer fee in order to receive their winnings. Don't be misled. You can't win a sweepstakes or lottery that you never entered--voluntarily participation is required in virtually all jurisdictions. These scammers will take your "advance fee" and disappear with it.Here is a link discussing this exact Nokia lottery scam: http://www.actionfraud.org.uk/have-you-won-the-nokia-lottery-jan11See here for more information regarding this type of scam generally:http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt022.shtmSee also: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/phonefraud/sweepstakes.shtmlDO NOT give out your personal information.
