The Incident
I received a message from cell no 072 071 6897 - reading the following:  CONGRATULATIONS? YOUR SIM CARD HAS WON R995,000 AND NOKIA N8 NOKIA YEARLLY PROMO WITH TICKET NO (NK72K) CALL MR JOHN 0781570665 TO ACTIVATE UR TICKET NO.  After calling and wanting my ticket no he ask me to call back in 5 min, has to check my ticket no - surely this is a scam and the Cell no can be traced - why did we RICA??
