    I seem to have won R950 000 in this same sms. After a quick google search on the e-mail of pstnly4@gala.net. 419 scam allerts popped up left right and centre. Where can I forward this sms to, to get these criminals cought?

  • leon18 3 Sep 2013, 10:57 AM

    yes tammy I was really stupid but really in need for that money. Ieven paid the money in a mrs l. cox bank account at absa bank. The police is busy working on these details of the account holders name. I honestly hope these people can be caught bnd locked up for fraud!

  • Tammy17 3 Sep 2013, 08:24 AM

    Leon, how can you WIN something in a competition that you never entered? Why would you have to PAY money to get your money?? If it was genuine win, they would take the taxes/fee's out the winnings and pay you the balance!! The greed of some people is outstanding! What I don't understand is HOW these people have not been caught?? Their Cell numbers have to be RICA'd to work as well as the latest one that gives a landline number..... Why have the cops not done anything??? Whats the point of reporting an OBVIOUS scam, and no one does anything but complain!!! And before you think I am complaining, No1: I Wouldn't EVER fall for an obvious scam like this No2: I am tracking that landline number down as well!!! WAKE UP people, do some RESEARCH before you believe some Random SMS!!! If its too good to be true, it probably is!!!

  • leon18 28 Aug 2013, 03:35 PM

    Exactly the same happend to me. The fool i was to pay R1950 in a Mrs l cox bank account for insurance fee. Today we received a message to pay 2 percent of the winning money due to Vat, another R5000. You fuckers,.

  • priscilla5 21 Aug 2013, 09:23 AM

    This people is really milking people. First airtime of R110 then transfer fees, before getting your so called money. I've checked the internet and came across many victims. Be warned people!. They real crooks. Agent receiving acct: MR.TP Greenwood 1301810019 Capitec bank.fax.0867707705

I called the number this afternoon. When I call the number I am told that I need to buy airtime and call again to give them the voucher number and pin to register my money into my name. This Lizaan thinking I am stupid and she got me, said their finance department will call me to get my bank details and ref number she will provide. She really thought I am a fool falling for that. People please be careful of these scams. She goes on to say I must protect my ref no. ("keep it in a safe place to avoid other people claiming your money....") You Lizaan Roberts and your team of scams!, I wish you rot in jail!!!! You think we are idiots. Go back where you come from.

  • Dylan 17 Sep 2012, 10:15 AM

    Hi Guy's. Just want to add the following numbers that are scams,i received a sms from the following and phone calls stating i won R120 000 with nokia promo2012.i know its nigerian scams and have also used my IT talents to try trace numbers.these are internet voip registered numbers like with skype and ROMTELECOM. dont fall for it or reply with any personal info. sms from 27817270616 skype reg sim 0762011288 and reg land lineVOIP 0218393128.skype reg sim I wish i had the tools to catch these guy's.but i dont.there are laws from above voip companys that protect their clients details.surly if can be proven they should give authorities reg details and ip address for anti fraud to trace these criminals.Be careful, any multinational like NOKIA or COCA COLA would not phone from such numbers if they had call centers, and also would not use email addresses like yahoo, so be awake and be one step ahead.best of luck.Dylan.
