    "Congrat,Your No: was picked in FIFA 2013 Award,you won 960,000.00. Your Ref No is SALGUK.Contact .Bianca Louw on 0839524203 email,glomaxltd@aol.com" This SMS has not even been done professionally, this should already tell you a lot. Shame... To think that some people are so desperate, they would actually fall for something like this.

    I have also just been scammed - "Mr Andrew Smith" Cel number 0835320023 tried to scam me that I had won R450.000, after I recieved a test message to my phone this morning - my ref number which I had to quote was SA89LK. Luckily he did not get my bank details or any money from, although he tried very hard!

    Congratulations! Your mobile no was randomly selected in FIFA 2012 WORLDWIDE AWARD. You won R450,000. Your Ref. No F004SA. Call 0732567938 for your claims. Why has no one done something about this they should be able to trace the number where it's comming from. Is that not the purpose why every one had to RICA their phones.

  • Lelani3 3 Aug 2012, 10:21 AM

    I Received the same SMS today. How do they get a hold of your cell phone number? If the crime gets reported surely something must be done about it.

  • Van3 2 Aug 2012, 08:19 AM

    I got the same sms and it is ridiculous that no one has done something about this scam. I totally agree with Edwin, what is anyone doing about this?? This is rediculous!!!!!!! A crime is reported and what next? What is the status of this scam??

  • edwin5 30 Jul 2012, 02:29 PM

    I got the same sms what i don't understand why hasn't these people been caught already. They using the same numbers everytime. Come on SAPD surely we must have an a intelligence Dept to which also is as clever as these people are.

  • Tanya22 2 Jul 2012, 08:21 AM

    I have just received the identical sms that most people are stating but as I was sceptical I googled first and came across this site so realized it is a con. The source number was 0812174069 and the number to call and claim is 0785025188. Lets hope someone does something about this as I see no answers to any of us regarding why a RICA trace has not stopped this ???

  • Desmund 20 Jun 2012, 02:32 PM

    I recieved the same sms, waited one day and phoned, same story i need to call them back while they veryfy my ref. no. I then phoned back and the guy asked for my banking details and I then said it's inapropaite to give these info to a stranger and the guy suddenly explained why and sort of begged for my details and then gave him the acc no. 082f...k you then suddenly the south african accent returned saying ouwh..

  • Monique6 20 Jun 2012, 07:03 AM

    i received this same message this morning: Call 0785025188 for your claims. I think all of us are smart enough to realise that money doesnt just fall into our laps like that (LOL) what i dont understand is, what was the point of the whole RICA system if things like this cannot be prevented. Surely the identity of this individual should be known by service providers, if not cut the number. Come on SA lets start using the resources we have and the systems that YOU put in place....

  • Sandra7 18 Jun 2012, 03:57 PM

    My story is as follows, i did the following to see how far these people would take it... I received the same sms with the same reference number, i called them on Thurs, 14 June 2012 and was told they need to verify my winning number, did not receive a call to confirm the verification. I called on Fri, 16 June 2012 and was told to give them my banking details , which i did so on Mon, 18 June 2012 (gave them a bank account details with no money in it). I received another email asking me to buy 5MTN airtime to the value of R180 each to register, i called to find out why and lady on the other side explained to me, that i needed to purchase these airtimes in order to be registered before they can deposit the winnings of R450 000, thats when i decided to google to see if this is a scam... so i guess it is!!!!
