Recieved an sms to say that we had won R50000 with ticket no 0166p and to call 071 8320625. The message was sent from 072 872 4542. When I called, the man told me that my ticket number had not yet been processed through their system and that I would need to buy R175 vodacom air time and sms the pin number, my phone number, postal address and ticket number as well as cell phone serial number and they would post the cheque to me. When I asked if I could first load the airtime onto my phone and then send the pin number he got quite upset and said they would use the R175 to process the ticket number. When I questioned this he asked me if I wanted the R25000 or not and if I did I was to follow the instructions as he had given. I put the phone down as I had googled the scam and found others who had a similar or almost identical experience.
