    I just received a sms saying that I won a Toyota Hulix 2015 with a ref number for a claim office. If you phone they want you to send them your age and address where the car must be delivered and they will contact you with the banking details to pay the fee for delivery. People be very careful these are all scams. If you you are told that you won R900000.00 and you must just pay R2500 to transfer the money. dont do it. Just ignore the sms.

    And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God, and the books were opened.. and another book was opened, which is the book of life.. and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them.. and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20v12-15. BUT!!!....

    +27723499563 was the sms I received information from as follows; Congratulation! Your Cell Number Has Won R125 000 in 2011 Mobile Award Promotion, Ref No: M252M. Contact Mr Paul Castro on 0783009772 for your prize. When you phone him he want you to buy airtime and send the slip information to him. Luckly on the Internet I picked up its a scam. I just feel sorry for the people who do not have access to the internet to investigate.

    I received a similar sms - 9 June 2011 - 03:03am. It appeared strange.It read"Congratulation! you mobile no has won R95.000. and NOKIA PROMO. with ticket no. Z166P. for claim Mr Jerry Johnson 0780208476" I'm just happy that RICA registeration ends 30 June 2011. I trust that from then onwards such scams won't be so prominent. It has been going on for some time now.
