Fifa World Cup Award


My husband got the same message from 0720391635. Congratulations! your mobile no. has just won R950 000 in the FIFA 2011 Award Draw with Ref No. FA286, call the SA Claims center on 078 564 5133.  I rang the number on behalf of my husband, and spoke to a man (could hear children playing in the background) and was asked to confirm area I was phoning from, name and the number to which the sms had been sent.  He then asked me to call back in 5 minutes, he wanted to check out the reference number.

When I told him to call me back (after all, he had our cell number) and told him I could hear children's voices in the background, he put the phone down on me.Caller: FIFA Award CentreCall Type: SMS

    i also got a sms at 2 this morning to say my nr has won me R500 000. I had to phone a Mr john Owen on 071 771 8640 which I did. I phoned from work and he told me to phone him back from the I've received the sms from. I had to claim my prize from 65 Market str, Claypark , JHB before 13H00 today, or I could sms my banking details and 2 R250 Vodacom prepaid voucher nrs to his cell nr after receiving this sms the money will be transfered into my account. he had a very bad accent so I requested that he mail me the instructions. which I'm still waiting for.
