    I also have received a message that states that I have won an amount of R900 000 from fifa promo 2012 (sa center) uk.my coment is,will it not be fair for fifa to tryse this people as we have their numbe?

  • Jason24 20 Jan 2012, 11:54 AM

    Same non sense this side - however I had won R 950k and all I had to do was buy4 x R 250 vodacom prepaid vouchers. Instructions received from an african (seemly Nigerian - however I do not want to type cast all nigerians) man. the only reasson I call in (not from cell number) is to find the extend of the scam and to have a laugh at how he scrambles. The following questions I have are: 1. What are the police doing about this? sureafter all these reports something needs to be done from their anti corruption teams 2. What are the cell companyies doing about this? There is clearly a reputational risk perspective as they essentially are benefiting from the purchase of the prepaid vouchers. Can we really say they are not involved - or that they turn a blind eye to it because they make money. 3. As mentioned before, why did all the honest citizens of this country take the time to perform an entire RICA registration process when this type of fraud is left unattended. 4. Are we entitled to a collective approach FIFA directly based on CPA claims to this amount? They are the victims here and without action this will continue and others, who are perhaps uneducated and vulnerable, will fall foul to this. If we do not approach the police, Govt, CPA commission, RICA commission and or FIFA this will continue. THoughts?

  • Pooja2 20 Jan 2012, 10:38 AM

    I also received a FIFA Promotion sms stating that I won R150K, called the number and was told my Mike Anderson to call him back in 5 mins with my cell number!!! SCAM!

  • fiona barnes 19 Jan 2012, 12:21 PM

    Huh - I won R750 000 in fifa world cup promo, and even got a reference number! I called 083 8777435 from a landline, it was answered by an African man who actually said he was the Fifa world cup prize department - but that I could only claim my vast amount of prize money if I phoned on my cellphone - this leads me to believe that they might be able to hack into your phone if you use it - so I suggest not calling on cell, and seeing if you get same response. The sms was sent fromc ellphon number 072 274491 - landline call also answered by another trustworthy African gentleman with same story! same answer

  • Bruce McIntyre 19 Jan 2012, 11:23 AM

    I have just recieved the same sms telling me that i have won R600 000.00 ZAR and that I should contact Dr. Frank Brown upon phoning I was told by a Nigerian man to sms my banking details so that he could forward my details to thier accounts department.... I SAY BEWARE THEB QUESTIONS HE ASKED WERE DODGY DIFINATE SCAM SAME AS THE VODACOM PROMOTIONS SCAM OF 2011
