I received an SMS at 4:25am today saying "Congratulations!! your cellphone number has won R250,000 in NOKIA 2011 PROMO Ref No 0193 Np. pls call Mrs Linda on 0838770415 for your cash."
I phoned this number, which was answered by a woman who said that to release my money I needed to purchase a R275 VodaGo voucher and download it onto my phone. I was handed over to her "supervisor", a well spoken gentleman, who repeated the request. It was clearly not possible to download a voucher as I have a contract with another supplier. When I phoned again she asked for the pin number at which stage I accused her of fraud and the intention of reporting this crime. She became defensive but stuck to her story...
