    I have just received this sms saying i have won R450 000 on RICA ALL NETWORKS 2012 with reference no PSK141SA. I phone the number and a Nigerian guy answered the phone and he told me to sms him my details (bank) so that they will deposit this money to my account. Fortunately i google this company and i told him straight that he is trying to scem me and he drop off the phone. Be aware guys of this Nigerian people.

  • Nthabi 11 Sep 2012, 08:44 AM

    I just received one of those dodgy sms today. it says "congratulations ! your cell no has won R550 000 in case from RICA 2012 award promotions. Ref RiC112SA. CALL 0785831180 to claim your prize. 8am-5pm. T&CS. I didnt even bother to call. I hope no falls for more of these silly schemes.

  • Bruce9 6 Sep 2012, 10:39 PM

    I got a message not so long ago saying: "BLACKBERRY PROMOTION: Congratulations your sim has won R450,000 in RICA 2011/2012 Award With ref NO BB101 Please Call BEN ON 0782428254 for Activation & Claim." This is clearly a scam since most of the previous comments contain a quotation of an SMS they received that is similar to the one I quoted. These scammers clearly have the upper hand in all this since these scam text messages are still circulating, and will inevitably fall into the hands of the poor, needy and vulnerable. Isn't that why they still persist? Perhaps it's the police's lack of conviction in this or just that the law does not govern this sort of crime in SA. Either way, something needs to be done.

    I received also a sms: All network RICA MOBILE NUMBERS AWARD wishes to notify you of your winning of R265,000 with Refnr JKKTP. Call Cindy on 0731689481. I called her, she said the money will be available in 4 days, then I speak to Lucas 0736946848, he said I have to pay R3600 in to get the money, because of charges of the monetary policy. Everybody who win money must pay charges? They will never receive any money!

  • Fed Up3 17 Jul 2012, 04:02 PM

    Just got one of these scam sms's 'All network RICA MOBILE AWARD wishes to notify you of your winning of R 265 000 with REF No: KJJTP. Call Cindy on 0731689481.' I called the number knowing this was a scam and when I confronted this woman I was told that I am more than welcome to go to the police as nothing will happen to her. Many people have tried and nothing happened to her. Could the authorities please do something about this. Our telephone number surely do fall under our right for privacy, which is being exploited and how many innocent people have not fallen for this scam it is sick!!!
