i recieved an sms saying "congradulation you have won R250000 and a laptop in the RICA yearly promo ref no Y22N call miss l1nda on 0781790973 for your claims and activate your pin" when i asked them to verify that it was a legitimate competition i was verbally assaulted. this sort of thing is why people were not happy about the whole rica requirement to begin with it opens the door for us to be taken advantage of i would like these people arrested for fraud and the rica movement to be more secure it is troubling to me to know that anyone may have access to my details

I just got a message saying that I have won R175 000.00 and a laptop on the Rica Yearly Promo and that I must call Lerato on 0731814975, I called to enquire about the message and was told to call back in 5 min to verfy my pin. If this is a scam someone needs to put a stop to it before someone gets hurt.

This looks like a scam

I have just received the same sms and I am horrified that nothing has been done to stop this scam. It is a gross violation of privacy and preys on a persons need for quick cash. I agree with Ceanne, this scam justifies all of the concerns about RICA.

I received an sms on 28 March 2012 to inform me that I have won R100 000 rand and a laptop in a RICA yearly promotion. I received a pin: 2T3A and I must phone Tayor on 0717118848. I did phone and was told to buy 2 x R55 Vodacom airtime vouchers and send the activation pin of the vouchers along with my name, adress and cell no to Taylor on the number I gave above. This is definitely a scam, I saw the same name, phone number and pin sent to someone else!!! You're paying for airtime for these assholes!

Same as Annemarie. But they also want you to insure your" money for R 1950-00 before they can transfer it to you ! Do they think we are that stupid? Problem is with all the airtime they score they can go on for ever - I think they also use a phone for only a limited period of time before they throw it away - otherwise they can be traced. Frank said their offices is in Marketstreet 44 Cape Town accross the Metro Police - I do not stay in that area, so I will not know if there is such a building

Got the same sms, phoned the guy and told him that I suspected this whole thing to be a scam. He got a little aggressive and put his "boss" on the line who told me he would prove it otherwise if I came out to meet him at 44 Voortreker Road in Bellville. They are really trying to sell it. I asked for a reason for purchasing airtime and passing the cerial code to them and all that they could give me was "its for security reasons and we need it to register you into the system so we can transfer your money." Pretty sure you won't be getting that R200 Telkom airtime back.

I too received this sms. I called about 6pm and I was told to call back in the morning. So I did. But both times I called it sounded like people from nigeria or some place outside. That already made me think and the one guy called me back and said that I should call him back. Its as clear as crystal that this is a scam, and I have reported it to the police. We south africans are all trying to make a living but then these people come in and just bring corruption.

How my numbers got into the hands of these scamsters, is a question. I expected this RICA thing to be safety conscious, but allas, I lied. As a citizen I demand to be secured as much as some agendas were secured when they came with the RICA idea. The said sms is still saved in my phone.

Upon contacting her (curious)she asked for details where prize could be delivered to and that the receiving agent would personally deliver check once a sum of R1800 was deposited to a Nedbank Account. Name:L.Marotol Acc. No. 1002793963. Could investigation unit check out this account above as it might be a good place to start in order catch perpetrators. That's if something is done about this.

Also received the sms at 6:45am. My first red flag was the incorrect sperrling of "congtatulation"...seriously? Secondly was the phone number, competitions usually use a 0860 number or a number belonging to your relevant network provider. Then the very lethargic David requested that I send him my postal address and cell number--- don't they already have this information if they really are RICA!!!??? Then requests me to call back, competitions will usually ask you to hold while they log this info for verification...

Got the same message this morning at just 5:37 also from a Mr David to be called back on 0793685148. I thought you have to get Rica'd to even have a number. I bet these numbers aren't even Rica'd as required by the rest of us. Scamming the scammed it seems.

Your Mobile Number has Won R250,000.00 in the RICA 2012 ALL NETWORKS PROMO, Ref No:RIC XXXXSA. Call Mr Afred on (0719508860) for your activation & claim. When I called the number a guy with a West African accent answered & asked for my ref number, which I gave. He then proceeded by asking for my cellphone number. Shouldn't he have that info, since they sms'd? I asked for their office location & a landline, but he refused & told me that I shouldn't be difficult as this isn't a scam. Who mentioned anything about a scam? He then asked for my ID number & bank details to deposit the money I've apparently won. I said no, why don't you send a cheque. He told me that I must call back to give my postal address. Why the need to call back when we are talking now? Total rubbish, they just want the banking & personal details linked to a specific cellphone number. This way they can do a sim swop & receive all the info they need from your bank via online banking & steal your money. Be careful for these "isiyonkas" who give all foreign nationals a bad name.

Received the following email: Congratulations your mobile number has won R195,ooo and a laptop in the RICA yearly promotion with a reference number. I phoned Vanessa, but she was unavailable, but William will help me.. He congratulated me and even asked me how do I wish to receive my winnings either by bank or cheque. I needed to by R110 Vodacom airtime and send it to them to activate my prize. why must I buy Vodacom Airtime when I'm not on that network? They thought I was an IDIOT. Pleasedon't be fooled

Scamsters all the way-when i called a lady,Mrs Mathonsi-0788291026 she said to me she is in another department and they will send my winner's certificate before 14h00.When i inquired about the payment of R1750,she said it is for transfer charges and taxes or maybe i do not want "my prize" of R145 000.Pity that we are so easily exposed to crooks in the name of Security.I bet you nothing is been done to stop this scams.

The scamster recited his story at such a speed that I could hardly follow what he had to say. I since enquired and there is no such thing as a Rica lucky draw - it is positively a scam!. Note that the number you had to phone only remains active for a few hours and thereafter getS deleted. IF IT SOUNDS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!!

Immediately knew something was not right as I feel that if you have won, then you will be phoned and not smsd! I went on google and as suspected this site confirmed this to be SCAM! Wish people like these will be punished, what about people out there to be so desprate for money, they will react to this and give all details to strangers and be robbed of their well earned earnings!

I received the same sms. What I want to know is what use is reporting this as nothing seems to be done about it. There are hundreds of people reporting this scam. All the people who call the numbers are just using their cell phones and MTN, Vodacom etc are just getting extra revenue. We all know that you can't win a competition if you have not entered. My advice DON'T CALL BACK, even out of curiosity, it just gives the cell phone companies more revenue. Name and number: Mr Abraham 0763331524 - I DID NOT CALL !!!!!

I receive these messages on a fairly regular basis.

The first time I received such a sms called from a landline. They insisted that i call from my cell phone. When i did, they quoted all my details to me as if reading it from a screen. Are these scams not operated from within the cellular networks? And why (in the light of Rica) can't they be exposed on the basis of the many cell phone numbers they use. Someone should investigate this.

I phoned back & he continued with this whole story about how people dont believe that they have won until they have received the money & the nokia phone. I was obviously skeptical & first googled if there are any scams on this. It is crazy. Why cant the police trace these numbers & do something about it. Lucky i did not even have a r180 to go buy the airtime otherwise i prob would of been SUCKERED lol...

New it was a scam as nobody in this world just dish out money for mahala! But did not have much to do so called Mr MARK on 073 784 0102 which is a Chinese speaking guy with a very poor English command. He first congratulated me and then requested that I sms him my address details and that I must phone him back after 5min in order for him to log it on his system. When I phoned him back he told me to go and purchase R 110 of prepaid mobile vouchers and sms him the pin code! Duhhhh. I then ask him for his SARS VAT Reg. no. or company registration no. and after explaining to this poor amateur what SARS is he dropped the line. I then phoned back and had some more fun with him and his colleague Judith. This is a real scam but poorly executed so you must be really stupid to fall for this, but please have some fun with them and at least get a good laugh out of it!!

Congratulation!! your cell No. have won you R120.000 in the year Rica promo award, your Ticket no, (YPQ7K) Contact Mr John On 0834037691 for claims. Why has police done nothing to protect our cellphone numbers. RICA is the worst thing that ever happened. This opened doors for scam artists to do their work. Either RIcA is stopped or our cellphone numbers must be protected.

He confirmed my winnings and asked if i want it to be paid electronically or by cheque. when i asked for a land line he gave me this number - 021 8393142 and a lady by the name of Zizo and then when i called back her name is Lorato and thereafter it was Linda Botha.

I received an sms saying i won R195000 in a Rica promotion. Call Rose to claim your prize. I call 0812553478 as for Rose a nigerian lady answers tells me to call back in 5 minutes to verify my pin NK22. i call back she tells me to buy a R200 telkom card and call her back to activate the pin, then asks how do i want the cash, a chq delivered or in my bank account. i start questioning her how does buying a telkom card have anything to do with Rica and she gets feisty and cannot answer any question and slams the phone down. Really now, how is it that there are 196 coments for the same thing reported here and no one has caught these crooks. i thought the reason we are doing Rica is so that every cell number has a street address. Wake up SAPS. This is what our government is letting into this country and we give them rights for everything. Sick and tired of these scammers, looks like we citizens have to take the law into our own hands if we have to clean S A out.

I received this sms a few minutes ago. What amazes me is that all these scams are conducted by a specific group of people(Nigerians) who happen to be enjoying the most protection from our constitution over rightful citizens. By the way we are not allowed to name a population group that robs poor south africans of their hard earned cash. The only reason why they turn south africa into their play ground is because our constitution allows it. Its a pitty that even good faithed Nigerians are tainted by the image of their country men

This scam is still going - will the police not do anything about this ? Just received " CONGRATULATIONS! Your Mobile number has won R200000 From Rica Promotion held in 2012. Ref 345-SSP. For your claim call Mrs Amada ON .0785630544." Jimmy answered and ensured me it is valid. Said i will call back .Now on voice mail !!!! Never use your cell / mobile to phone them. Just for kicks phone from your land line - it really pisses them off!!! If RICA was introdused to trace us innocent people why can they not trace the criminals? RICA is a load of crab.

I received the sms twice, and I called them both times, knowing it was a scam. So they told me to buy R200 Telkom airtime and call back , I then told them to pay me my winnings and I will then buy the airtime out of my winnings, cause Im BROKE, hence the winnings is a dream come true... The phone was dropped in my ear, so I call back, and I say why do you drop the phone , and she drops it again , I called back and the phone went to voice mail... LOL... Ppl need to stop being gullable out there, you cannot win anything and have to pay first to get your price, same like you dont have to pay to get a job, if they need you to pay for the training , surely they can deduct that from you salary?

JEESH I cant believe this Promo (scam) has been running for so long and I only get told about my R250 000 prize money NOW!! :) First thought i won R250 airtime from my network. Then I read it again and my heart skipped a beat. Thought it was real for a second when I saw the words All Network RICA Promo! But then when i saw it came from one cell number telling me to call another cell number, I knew it was BS. Mr "Report a Crime" here's a nice task for you while your on the beach this holiday, Send all this info to RICA and ask them to go check their system for these unregistered numbers and ask them how they plan to control this problem?? First prize would be to stop selling SIM cards for 99c at the till points. Idiots.

Who in there right will give you any cash of this magnitude via sms? If you want something for free call me and I will give you a hug, I don't even need airtime for that. How the hell is it possable for them to get sim cards anyway without having it RICA'd? I think we need to investigate the dealerships and outlets and have a system put in place for the outlets to rica their batch of sims and phones of which they wish to sell. We need to focus on the cause and not the problem, lets not cry and report crime the whole time but lets do something about it. There must be some kind of law or inforcement that can help us. So if anyone can assist in this please contact me on 0790691015, this number is legit and not for chancers. Someone is on the inside and we will find you, this message is from a LOYAL RICA SUPPORTER!!!!!! DONT MESS WITH MY RICA!!!!

Got the same sms, claiming we won R280000- When we called, they said we have won R250000-, when I asked for a landline number to confirm this, they said there are technical errors with their telkom lines and all the numbers are mobile numbers, and I must not worry about it as it is a mobile number competition. They wanted our banking details, when I refused, they said they want our postal address etc to send us the cheque. The gentleman I spoke with is "Nelson" amd they are situated at 149 Nelson Mandela Drive, Bloemfontein. The only way I can verify this competition would be to go to their offices. SCAM

Can somebody please do something about this???? I'm so scared because I gave them my residential address and now they phoning me for the R950.00 deposit so they can deliver my R250 000.00 cheque. The "Mr. Bryan" I spoke to was very rude as when I asked him if there's any way I can prove that the competition is real, he said "the question is are you going to make a payment or not, yes or no?" I believed them for a second hence I called them to claim my prize I only became suspicious after I googled them and I came through to this site.

RICA PROMO! Congratulation, You have won R250,000.00 in the RICA ALL NETWORKS AWARDS 2013. WITH (REF NO RIC16SA), CALL Mr Davis ON 0711542691. FOR CLAIM. Another scam!! What a fake english bold fat ass piece of crap is the Mr Davis trying to put on behind that clear Nigerian voice. SAP should track these numbers because people have to RICA (Thats exactly why we have RICA not so???) Then charge them with fraudulent activities. I have also noted that they target people who are in debt to get your address details and it is a clear indication that they are working for a debt collection company and trying to get all your details by saying they will post a cheque. Who the hell posts cheques??? You want to pay to try and win, you stand a better chance in a casino. Advice - DO NOT GIVE ANY DETAILS OR CONFIRMATION OF ANYTHING.

Hi All i think the only use for this site is the fact that others can use it as a ref to confirm the SCAM. but further than that this site is useless because people has been complaining about this for more than a year and nothing i repeat NOTHING has been done about this. i called the number i received and the dude that answered tried sounding like an English speaking person i could not help my self to laugh, i then asked him where are they base he said mumble mumble im like what i after the 10th time i made out that he said Gauteng OH oOH before i forget they told me i won 950 000 almost a million hahahahhaha......i think this scam runs deeper than we think come on people look where our personal information has ended up.

When I called he said Its Sa Law that I must pay insurance if it is over R50 000 but I must pay before they deliver. When I called Miss Nancy to ask if this is a scam she said no Mam it not, I said ok what if you pay the money into my bank acc, then you must pay 2500,00 she said. I asked her to send me proof of all these information she gave me, now she will speak to her manager and will call me back. It definately sound like a scam.

2nd hand details here ..they give you options to choose from .either leave your banking details via sms and they will deposit the money in your account immediatly or sms ur postal address etc and they will mail you a check , they then say they will call you back immediatly . working on catching these guys at the moment but it seems that its quite well organised , ive used the names of all the persons who have smsed us , such as MR JAMES, nancy , zanele ndoda , sandra , john marx and clinton , in all cases these so called persons were available to talk but non of them had english accents as you would percieve some of them to have such as john marx . guys do be carefull with this and do not call their number

On the 28th March I received an sms that my cell number has won R850.000 in the rica monthly promo and I must call 0720565295 and e-mail idt@live.co.za now my concern is that if rica doesn't know about this why can't they catch these people that's no1.No 2 is that everybody can only have their cell number operational through rica which basically makes it easier for rica to trace these culprits.No 3 how many more complaints must come through before this thing can be taken into consideration,there is police,forensics and people who can build a car,plane and get them to move right here in SA but why is it so difficult to stop this even if people raising their concerns about it.I think all rica staff inc the CEO must be interogated till the truth come out because I never received an sms from rica to warn me about the scam going on so rica do know about these scams and I personally want my claim processed by rica and without paying a cent upfront,it,s so disgusting for such a big company to ignore people feelings about these scams.I need my responce pls

You can phone Mrs Botha on 021 827 1671 and sms her on 071 516 2603. I received an insurance certificate that it is not a scam and all legal and the certificate has the company name of Security Insurance Brokers, no 147 Long Street, Cape Town, West Cape.

I received an sms saying I won R450,000.00. When I phoned I spoke to a guy named Alfred. He said he is representing RICA as their agents, what I would like to know is why RICA has not done anything about this scam because their reputation is being tarnished. So Alfred wanted my personal details, when I refused to provide same for him he began to get aggressive. Then when I asked why the address he provided was differrent from RICA's offices he told me if I don't wish to collect my money I should just phone the police. These guys should be caught and charged!!! Something needs to be done.

Well I was stupid, Got sms to say I won R450 000 but I was required to pay certain fees, which I did, including R3750 t obtain my pin number. Then I got asked to pay R20 000 into one account and another R20 000 into another account for tax fees. THIS I DID NOT DO. I received a cheque payment into my bank account of R450 0OO, but after verification the bank confirmed that this payment was fraudulent so they stopped payment. SACF-Rica Promotions (Cape Town ) a Mr Roberts, APOLOGISED and my prize money was subsequently increased to R550 000. and I now have to got thru the whole process again. I even got a certificate from SACF RICA to authenticate my winnings. It all seemed to be real, BUT........?????? I have now gone to RICA AND THE INTERNATIONAL LOTTERY ORGANISATION IN THE UK.

Cant we get these fools caught already. Got the same SMS telling me my sim card had won R350K, ref No. RIC445UK, to contact 0839922858. Asked who I was speaking to, she told me her name is Asanda - yeah right! I asked for their company name, she said RICA, asked for their physical address, she told me No. 2 Century City, Canal Walk, asked for their landline, she told me 021-836-9491 and asked who their Mktg Dir was, she said Mr. Smith. I mean come on!!! Trouble is, there are gullible people out there, who dont know that for every call centre in the world there is message-on-hold, it doesn't just get answered by someone who sounds like they're standing in their kitchen taking calls. And usually when you've won something, they give you all your details to verify, they don't need you to SMS them your details, and what company issues you a cheque for your prize, I mean please!!!! When there is so much IB in the world nowadayz. This is boring and irritating, these people need to get caught now, we shouldnt still be wasting our time getting pathetic sms'es like these. I only called her because I had nothing better to do for that few minutes and thought it would be interesting to hear what she could come up with, but after a minute I just got bored. If I worked for the police service, idiots like these who think they can make a quick buck would be a target for me for jail-time. ah, so irritated by this sh1t!

Just received a new sms - Omo Promo 2014. I have apparently won R350'000. I phoned the cell phone number (just to chat), and no one answered. Phoned the land line (to check), and some guy answered without 'welcoming' me to this supposedly winning promotion. Anyway, the offices are in Stellenbosch (that's what he said), and when I didn't want to give my cell number, he ended the call.

Just got a message to say "Your RICA sim has won R250 000 in RICA promotion 2014. Your ref no. 2200KP please contact on 078 672 8352 for your claim". I have just called RICA and they said that it's a scam.

In also receive these things quite often. Plain logic should tell one this is a scam. They've got your phone number and, hundreds of thousands of Rands, but YOU must phone THEM??? Oh, come on!!!

i received this sms today, ''congratulations! your cell number has won R275.000 in RICA Promo 2014.win code -SA0 something #.contact your agent Mrs KHETIWE P ON 0781726291'' I called the woman who then later advised me that i need to buy R275 airtime and then call her back with the recharge pin so that she can activate my pin - i asked her if this is legit and she assured me it is, i then told her i work in IT and in my field its easy to track down the simplest thing to a cell number etc .. she then hungup and the number was off afterwards.. so my next question !!!! WHY THE HELL IS NOBODY DOING ANYTHING ABOUT THIS??? surely the RICA fraud dept can see all our comments and incidents. WHY IS NOTHING BEING DONE???
