Cell phone scam

Message on cell phone: 'Your Cell Phone Number has won you R960,000.00 ZAR in FIFA UK AWARD 2010 CUP.  Call Mr Brown claims agent on 0783370908 to claim your prize.  Ref: UK 1155SA.  Sender: +27829721596.'
I have not called either of the numbers and so, arguably, the crime has not yet been committed - but the intent is pretty obvious!

    intent is still an attempt at perpetrating crime and if you attempted to murder you can still be found guilty - the tools have been acquired to perpetrate this intended crime and in attempted car theft, you merely have to be in possession of specialy modified allen keys etc to be found guilty - thx for the report
