Scam SMS


This morning around 4 am, I recieved an SMS from saying "Congratulations your phone number has won R295 000 in Blackberry Promo. Your ref. no: M19. For claims please call Mr. Mark Lawreance on 073 7304201". This message came from the number 071 128 5821. I googled the guys name and found that it is a scam.

    I too have just received a similar sms also trying the Rica promo. I am also concerned as to how they get our information and what is been done about it.

    Received the same sms this morning, they should really get a life. We work hard for the money we earn.

    I received a simmilar text this morning the number they send it from is 0815448032 what annoys me most is the time I got the sms, my biggest concern is where do these idiots get our details from and how do they know what handset you use or is that just a wild guess. Is anything being done seeing that the govt have all the info of all simcards...
