    I received this sms this morning: Thanks for your support! You have won R350K from G-tECH ATM/SPEEDPOINT.Ref #GT55ZA to claim I even checked their website...this is definately a scam. They expect you to deposit R900 into their bank account before they release the funds. Do they think people are that stupid?!

  • Mariska2 27 Sep 2012, 02:16 PM

  • Ray5 11 Jul 2012, 08:31 AM

    I also received a mail today saying I had won R350 000... such a scam, I hope one day these fraudsters will be cause. Thanks to Google I realised this was a scam.

  • Margarite 9 Jul 2012, 01:03 PM

    Yes, I too received the sms and was assured by A. Carel that this is NOT A SCAM!! Really, how can these people just carry on and on with this. How many poor people are caught, appointing in good faith, the "agent" at R900?? These people should be locked up never to go free again!! They steal from poor people who hope to get the money in their need. Fortunately I do not believe in getting that which I have not worked for. Good luck to future "winners"

  • MD 8 Jul 2012, 09:45 PM

    I received the sms woth R200k prize, thanks for these posts to warn others.

  • Zelda 2 6 Jul 2012, 09:40 PM

    These stupid asses sent me the sms twice on the 4th and the 6th of July 2012, Thanks to Google and scam reports. I just wonder where they get the cell numbers from, or is this a result of the RICA process, I keep on getting all kinds of unwanted sms's that advertises stuff. Is these RICA'ed numbers being sold to promotional companies??

  • Jan40 6 Jul 2012, 12:20 PM

  • Clint6 18 Jun 2012, 07:22 PM

    I too received an email early this morning... As a business owner who actually has one of these ATM's on site, I thought it could be real... but 1 Google search brought me here! Clearly standing in line to RICA 3 different sim cards was a complete waste of my time...

    I also got the sms an told my wife to google it I have the same ref number AT56ZA this needs to be addressed by the SAPS because they are stealing peoples money they didn't catch me but they will catch other people

  • Henning Venter 29 May 2012, 12:11 PM

    My reference number was exactly the same AT56ZA, but now they're using a website ATM LINK PROMO.

  • Helene vd merwe 29 May 2012, 09:48 AM

    They are still up and running I just received a sms on my VODACOM NUMBER same old story, but the using a email address or call them on a MTN NUMBER 0784466608 called and message went through, email went through and they are using a NEOTEL number 0110501777 how come they can use telephone and email addresses that exist, and nobody can arrest them......these numbers and email address can surely be traced by the cops as all these companies should have their id's and full addresses, BE CAREFUL PEOPLE MY REFERENCE NUMBER WAS AT56ZA this is sickening, what if some poor person gets caught that is vulnerable and believes that they won, and they dont have internet

  • Fed Up5 24 May 2012, 06:40 PM

    This person gave a ref number to be printer from the internet - letting you win R350 000. You must hand him you ID and proof of residence. They have an address on the internet, 77 Westbourne str Port Elizabeth, South Africa. He claims that they are new in SA, they supply ATM machines to SA and by using the ATM, I have won. As I was in PE this week I decided to go to the office and check this out --this address does not exist and the man on this number cannot direct one to the office, as he does not know where it is - and he goes there every day! He then tells you he will send someone to fetch you, then he tells you the security man is very busy he cant fetch you now. Then he needs your info so that they can fetch you and so it carries on.As far as I am concerned this is a SCAM

  • Pieter50 23 May 2012, 02:10 PM

    I receive the same sms that I have win R350,000. ZA56SS from cellphone number 0792599473. Why it's a scam, there is no upfront money payable. Did anyone wnet to this premises to check and collect his money, maybe we all are dummies. Who's staying in PE. Please go and check for us whats going on

  • elisha 11 Apr 2012, 01:11 PM

    Yes yes yes, it is a scam. Peeps when i called him to ask how come all of you have posted these comments, he says everyone has a right to their own opinion and he says that no one actually left their cell numbers or contact details. so please peeps lev your details so this Jeff Morris can't fool anyone else. 0836702311

  • Hendrik9 5 Apr 2012, 01:24 PM

    This syndicate has been trying to scam me for the last 5 years. Its amazing that how when it comes to crime that the 'human' can be so creative. I have posted it on the IC3 of the FBI but it seems even they can't catch the simpletins!!!! One way to play them is to tell them to deduct the costs of the R350 000 which will balance to R349 1000. And you want it in cash. You will meet them iNSIDE the UK embassy. Then they drop the whole thing!!! How is it that I have changed my Vodacom cell numbers to get rid of them but somehow they trace you again? Vodacom's system is obviously not up to par or somehow someone is selling the vodacom data to the scammers.

  • Willem22 5 Apr 2012, 01:08 PM

    ag,shame, the idiots, when will they realize that they not as clever as the white man!!!

  • Magda3 3 Apr 2012, 04:06 PM

    Yes this is a scam indeed. The are operating from Sandton and Rosebank. As soon as u deposit the money into the account they use it. The account is in a lady's name 100drets of people deposit daily and I don't understand how the bank can't put a stop to this. I contacted the US branch and the have a team in SA trying to cath them. Let's hope they do! My friend in the bank gave me all there detail but that can also be fraudly but atm transactions is done in Rosebank be aware they still are operating but will soon be where they belong

  • Amanda Naude 26 Mar 2012, 11:49 AM

    I doubt anyone would fall for this, especially once they have spoken to the very backward "Jeff Morris" you can hear he is not very bright or very educated and a big company would never put such a derelict in any position, especially one with any responsibility, perhaps as the gardener or cleaner but not to deal with the public. Let's hope he gets his just deserts or gets deported, obviously a foreigner.

  • Amanda Naude 26 Mar 2012, 11:45 AM

    I spoke to Jeff Morris, he also told me to come to 77 Westbourne Street in Port Elizabeth, I told him I was bringing the police with me, just to make sure everything was as it says. He seemed very nonplussed about it. I said I was coming to his office to fetch my money, and he said that was fine. I didn't I am in Cape Town, but funny that everyone gets the same ref no: Bt23uk or something, It is actually the number they use on the website. I am going to try get his ID number this "Jeff Morris" should be put behind bars.

  • sTEVIE 25 Mar 2012, 09:00 AM

South Africa I'm going to the office tomorrow and then I will find out what's going on, 1st thing. If you where a winner of R350 000 they wouldn't have smsed you they will phone you.

    The real NCR Company mailed me back today saying their legal department is looking into this scam.

  • Chantell5 19 Mar 2012, 12:26 PM

    We also received the same message guess his been caught out or realised same as the line is off. Also believe that if something is to good to be true it's not. There are so many similar scams cant these guys just stop wasting time, but hey we all human we still find out if it is a scam. And I also agree with a couple of you guys if such a large amount is up for grabs it would have been advertised in media as well as that you will be contacted not been sent an sms. ha ha try you dumb asses but you will not succeed. By the way the site is still up and running.

  • Corine 17 Mar 2012, 02:20 PM

    I send a mail to the real company letting them know whats going on hope they get back to me because its their name thats being dragged thru the mud.

  • Pieter14 13 Mar 2012, 07:57 AM

    Me 2, received the same sms from number 0761582967. Every sim in South Africa should be Rica registered by now. So it would be easy for the cops to find this pathetic fool and charge him for fraud at least. Lucky I had google 2.

  • bennie4 7 Mar 2012, 10:04 AM

    can we get the cops in pe to go to the adres and arrest them

  • jacques43 6 Mar 2012, 08:58 PM

    One needs to ask yourself why you were informed via sms, and why, when winning something, you should have to pay r900, what your bank account/bank card has to do with your cell number? Furthermore, such a promotion would be advertised in the media. Inn all aspects, if you hesitate, los dit uit!! Bunch of dumb asses!!
