    I recieved a sms that reads "FINAL NOTIFICATION: Your Ref. is AFC707 from the AFCON FINAL DRAWS. Your prize money was R750 000.00. Call claims consultant on 0780337115 to process your prize". I recieves the sms at 03h35 in the morning, I phoned the number and got a lady voice saying "welcome to fifa claims department our offices are open from 08h00 to 18h00. press 1 to leave a message for the person you are contacting or 2 to leave your number". I eventialy got the ringing tone but nobody answers the call and after a few seconds it returns to the lady voice. If this was not a scam why do they not answer the phone?

  • Andre30 24 Oct 2012, 06:53 AM

    I received the same sms this morning from 0817436016. Did a google search first. Please catch these criminals! Can't this number be tracked because of the Rica law?

  • Nicolas 25 Sep 2012, 11:24 AM

    I thought twice about the whole thing, R250000 is a lot of money and it was quite tempting because all of us could use the money right? Think of all the good you can do with such a lot of money. Plus I'm a bachelor, I could even buy a house or something! But I decided to do some research as something told me that this could be a scam and I am very gullible, especially when it comes to cell phone deals over the phone and I have given in before to phone salesmen. So I typed in Fifa 2012 cell phone scam and came to this webpage. I saw that others also recieved similar SMS's. After reading the SMS again I noticed that there was a small 's' at the end of the SMS. Perhaps it stands for 'scam' or 'sucker!' I'm glad I was out of airtime at that time and that I didn't act hastily or impulsively. May this be a warning to others out there to think twice before you fall for a cunning scam! Nicolas

    I phoned the number and an African man answered. I told him that I recieved this sms and told him that I don't remember entering any competition like this. He said my number had been selected, and asked me how I want to recieve the prize. I asked him if it was airtime that I won because I couldn't believe it was a cash prize. So he said no, it's cash. So I told him that I would like them to transfer it (EFT) to me. He said all I have to do is SMS my full name and surname, sms the reference number, my cell phone number, bank details and I.D number to the number on my sms. I asked him if I can rather email my details to him cause I didn't have airtime, but he said that I can only sms it. Then I asked him to send me a proof of payment once I recieve the money, he said he could and that the money will be in my account today or tommorow. I thanked him and he congratulated me for winning. I asked him what his name was and he said Raymond Roawsen. I even asked him to spell it for me.

  • Thandi15 5 Jul 2012, 04:31 PM

    Received the same massage from thr mbl no. 270780856547, reported to my DAD , we spoke to a woman by the name of Linda who asked us to by Vodacom vouchers for R110 x5 and call her for further instrustions. We googles FIFA claims site and found the commentry by other who were possible targets of this scam. I called the number and we put phone on speaker. The men by the name of Steven answered the phone. The tone sounded Nigerian trying to immitate South African. The more we presssed with questions trying to provoke him by accusing him of rumming a scam, the more the tone came out as that of Nigerian.

  • etienne4 5 Jul 2012, 09:50 AM

    Received the same congratulatory message this morning that I had won the Fifa yearly award. Ref. number 286. Why are we bombarded with these scams? Surely something can be done.

  • KATE NKAU 26 Jun 2012, 01:21 PM

    I received and sms, congratulating me that my mobile was randomly selected I have won R450, 000. Your Ref No. F444SA call 0785025188. I called and the recipient sounded convincingly legit. He said I should call after 5-10 minutes as he is still going to verify my Ref No. I called back and he verified my winnings, however he needed my baking details. I said I do not have a bank account and requested that they mail my winnings to me. He then said I will be liable for the postage as these transfers are done in England. My suspicion were then raised, how could they expect that I pay courier fees if I won R450,00, they can easily deduct the courier fees from my winnings. The gentle men said no it does not operate like that, either I give him my banking details or pay for the courier.

  • Nasreen Malik 15 Jun 2012, 09:48 AM

    OH NOOOO!!! he sounded so legit. I need some serious answers here... can they hack your account if they have your account number? got the same sms saying i won R450 000.00 FIFA PROMO jazz..... what do i do? change by banking details??

I phoned the number today and got the voice-mail light service. I would also like to know where they get my number from. Please investigate!

  • Claudine3 24 Jan 2012, 10:04 AM

    I received the same message last night,saying CONGRATULATIONS!!! your mobile number has just won R950,000 in the FIFA yearly AWARD Draw! so i called the number 0780856547 and went straight to voicemail. called the number today out of curiosity, and spoke to a guy named Robert, couldnt really make out what he was saying, sounds like a nigerian... he then asked me for my reference number which i gave, then asked me to call back in 5 minutes time. i immediately googled SA Claims Centre and found this site. needless to say I WONT BE CALLING BACK!!! they are obviously aware of being reported to the police,which is why they ask if you can call back in 5 minutes time so that they cant be traced. where the heck did they get my number from. hope they cant access any banking details from where ever they got my number from!!!!!!
