Scam


I received a message on my cellphone reading: "Congratulations! Your number was picked in Fifa 2011 mobile award, you won R750 000. Ref. no. 0028F. Contact Jerry Thompson on 0734085926 to claim your prize." I have phoned this number and goes over to voice mail. This number must be RICA. Please look into this matter and get back to me.
