Fifa Worldwide Mobile Award

I've received a sms - Congratulating me, that I'm the winner of R750,000.00 in the Fifa 2011 Mobile Award - with Ref. F24SA - which I must give to claim my prize - and to phone a cell number 0838777435 - which belongs to their South African Correspondent - which is an African Male - when I phoned. I've even received an e-mail from a Mr Larry Dickson in the Registration Dept. claiming this is not a scam, I've contacted Fifa itself via online, and received an e-mail back from them, claiming this is a scam and that I should report it to my local authorities.  Isn't there a way these people could be repremanded or traced? There is so many people out there who really need this kind of money, who would give everything to have it, and then they loose. I think there must be a way to put a stop to this.

    I have been contacted by text on my cell phone android, saying I'm 1 of 10 people that has won 500.000 dollars, they never asked for money or have not given me a phone number to call either, I have my doubts, that woulda been very nice.i well see if they try again if so .and if they ask for money ill tell them to kiss my ass lol.

    Hi guys. This is a year after all of your comments and I have won 960 000 from the FIFA 2010 world cup anniversary promo. Guess who the guy was.... MR CLIFF JONATHAN. I mean come on! What's the use of reporting a crime if a year on he's still operating. Hope someone will do something about this.

    Viva 2010 anniversary - Received sms that said I won R960 000-00. I received reference number and phone number. I phoned and a guy answered at the other end. He said that in order for me to receive the money, I must send my banking details. I told him that I had no bankdetails as I am a housewife. He then told me to send my idnumber, full name and address via sms to him and then phone him back. I decided to check if this was a scam on internet and Voila!!!!
