    Not sure if you noticed but Research In Motion was spelled wrong a few times. That's kind of a red flag right there.

    when i read the posts (thatplaybookguy & erwin baldoman), i suspected both to be scams. we get lots of those in Indonesia. it should be simple to check though, for thatplaybookguy, just show the message to a TAM center, then erwin baldoman's one should be blatantly obvious, but if you want to, you can always check with polsek regarding the letter number they wrote there. what's annoying is people can just try out different pins to message and spread spams that way.. much like the spams that have started going around in whatsapp...

    My prize notification arrived this morning.

    Nobody has my PIN, so I was quite surprised.

    Another way for people to p*** you off!

    Got this email too - at 2:28AM! Also in Indonesian. Luckily us South Africans have learned that messages like this are pure scams. Don't even know what I "won", too sick and tired of receiving this nonsense. And from Indonesia?! Never even been there (or outside my own country's borders, for that matter). Just hate that they now have my BBM pin (that I have never shared with any untrusted source) and email address. How the hell did they get it, anyway?!

    Most likely just a random broadcast.. we get lots of that in Indonesia because lots of people still respond to it and actually get scammed.. sms & email for sure, they've also started sending whatsapp messages and now BlackBerry PIN messages..

    I just wish that BlackBerry can somehow block these things because sending PIN messages should still go through some kind of BlackBerry server right?

    They're quite clever too.. i just realised after receiving a broadcast message that they're playing around with the "RIM" name and "Pacific".. you'll find that they're still calling it Research In Motion (RIM) and either saying it's the Pacific region office or in the above cases the address is Pacific Place.. making it Pacific RIM.. LOL...

    Why because you download RIM APPs that deploying your PINs to web marketers actually in this spam both money grabbers get happy like your cell phone service provider because you serving there services and second is RIM same method because they gotten traffic from phone carriers when consumers serving so only struggling is cell phone consumers. Can you imagine how much RIM gotten even 1 penny or cent you served nothing for you but billions do same serving with this spam to check what is it? Both open this door for you that called consumer hunting so my suggestion to leave these messages dont click or reply them to let them know your BB pin is really active pin and just delete them.

    Seems like it was an broadcast message and maybe they've scoured our pin number from web... I guess Crackberry
