Good Morning. I have received an email apparantly from NOKIA: Congratulations your mobile number has won R95 OOO Iin our Nokia Promo. Ticket number 0433N. Call Mrs Zandile on 0790573341 for your claim from 8 am to 5pm. I called her on this number. she instructed me to buy 2x110 vodacom vouchers send her the voucher numbers with my ticket number. I asked her to verify all my details. She herself verified all my details , and it was correct. I did not give my information out to her . I did that an another bloke by name Thulani on this number0791955078 called m and said in order from him to pay moneys in my account I must pay R2550.00. I asked him why should I pay that if I won the price en then he put down phone in my ear. I lost R220 and they have my details, which they got via Nokia system and not by me. Please stop these people!!!

    Received SMS - won R295k must first purchase 2 starter packs - and confirm back to 078 3464 628 with the ref number. What is upsetting is that you find all the reports of the scams but no feedback of anything that has been done. With the Rica should this not be able to be stopped? Has anyone actually got feedback that something has been done?

    Same as the rest, mine said R450 000 won with ticket no 0166p Ms Lucie Khummalo on 0739592897. Sender no 27728110568. I thought RICA should have teeth to sort this sort of crap out.

  • Eish 16 Nov 2011, 09:27 AM

    My mum received similar to call Liziwe (0839461913). SMS originated from 0712282235. Why don't the police identify and catch these guys? Surely that's what RICA is for?
