    I just recieved this same sms about 30mins ago. I am always suspicious of such things and checked them out online. How do people still fall for these things. Especially seeing as they know they didn't enter any competitions... It's always so surprising how these guys manage to evade capture...

    I received a similar sms. Checked the internet to try and confirm whether it was true. I must say that the people know what they're doing if this is a scam indeed. The website look very real and confirms the validity of the promotion on the site. The contact e-mail is what got me wondering since it said atmlink@consultant.com and the website is www.sssza.com. I then also checked out www.consultant.com and found some site I cannot imagine being linked to a competition. That's when I got suspicious.

    I received the following sms this morning: CONGRATS! YOU ARE A WINNER OF R350,000 FRON ATM-LINK PROMO (atmlink.com), REF# AT56ZA. TO CLAIN EMAIL-atmlink@consultant.com OR CALL-0784466608 / 0110501777. Very similar to the one you received. Needless to say, I did not contact them.
