SMS Scam

I got an sms this morning at 07h56 from 0763905544 that says (spelling kept as in sms): "Congratulations your Mobile NO has won R450,000 in the FIFA YEARLY PROMO with  .Ref Num SA49GK .For claims call 0789142694 for your cash prize ."I didn't call the number as I'm sure they would have asked for my banking details - in order to transfer the 'money' to my account - and then stealing everything I have.We RICA'd so that these criminals can be caught... From what I've seen is that this scam has been going on from Jan 2011 and it's now Nov 2011. All the numbers have been provided so surely the culprits must get caught...?

    Received sms regarding a Nokia promotion winning. This is a scam, you have to phone a number, when the person answers, he asks for your cell phone number. If they sms you, they must have your cell phone number.
