  • Charmaine31 24 Jul 2013, 09:16 AM

    I also received an SMS stating I'd won 750'000 . I proceeded to call the number, knowing it was a scam as I had googled FIFA international promo and come out to this particular website (thank you to all of you for posting your comments ). This man was a real smooth talker, when he asked for my banking details I proceeded to ask him for a website where I could find out more about it to which he replied they hadn't set up anything concrete yet to which i replied if they were so well known why not he couldnt give me an answer, i then asked him for a toll free number again he replied with nothing concrete this time sounding more nervous with every question I kept asking him, by the end of the conversation he had spoken himself into such a corner he put the phone down. Please people don't trust anyone with your banking details,they will clean you out.

When I phoned him the first time, he sounded half a sleep, etc, had to phone him back as he had to verify my cel number. Received another sms this morning, I smsed back saying I need proof verification letter which was emailed to me. Jeremy is still adamant that this is not a scam, even thou I told him that it is on the Report a Crime website. The letter which was emailed thru was from Richard Mat Lottery Director FIFA International Lottery. There are two stamps on the letter and at the bottom is: This document is an authentic document belonging to FIFA international lottery. FAKE or NOT - Scam definately

  • Demitra 21 Nov 2012, 11:59 AM

    On 20 November 2012 at 05h34 i received the following SMS from 0798352843: "Congrat! Your mobile no, won, R920 000, In FIFI PROMOTION. With Tocket no. WN$. For Claims Call Mrs Florence on: 0737323650. Or go to www.fifadraw.pgae.tl". I called the number the following day and spoke to an effiminate sounding person who asked for my name and cell number and then indicated that I had won R920 000. I was asked either provide bank details or collect a cheque from their offices at 107 Mandela Drive in Bloemfontein, Free State. I decided to visit the website as well - it is a free site and information has been duplicated from the authentic FIFA site. This scam has been going on for months now and should have been investigated.

  • Zuanne 13 Nov 2012, 08:46 AM

    I was also congratulated on my R950000, but did not call, I would never call a cellphone number anyway, a valid office should have a Telkom line. Maybe this is working for them as this has been going on for some months. I feel more sorry for the scammer's themselves, you can never get far from stealing from innocent people, and they do not even realise what is ahead for them.

  • Kabous 8 Nov 2012, 07:19 AM

    What a scam won R 450 000 with fifa 2012 mobile promo ref no and all. Funny how quickly dr anderson can put a phone down when you get one of your friends says loudly that the phone trace had been succesfull. Been a long time since I laughed so much.

    Received sms on 10 July 2012 stating:"Congratulations!!You are one of the lucky winners of R1MILLION in the FIFA1GOAL award held in the UK. REF NO: 0407SA. Call Paul Charles on 0746839206 for claims." Called to find out more & the guy asked my name and Ref No, then confirmed that I had definitely won R1 million. He told me I could claim my prize by direct transfer into my bank account, by cheque posted to me or I could collect in person at their offices in the UK. When I told him I wanted a cheque, he told me to sms him my Full Name, ID Number, Postal Address and cell phone number. I said I wanted more info on the company so asked for website details & was told it was down for maintenance. When I asked for the company name and telephone number, he told me that I could call the FIFA 1 Goal office in the UK on 0044 703 1740 753. This is clearly a scam, but they seem to be more prepared with answers now than they were previously so beware!

    I also received an sms that said the following: "Congratulation! You are one of the lucky winners of 1 MILLION in the FIFA 1 Goal award held in UK REF NO 0407 SA call Paul Charles on 0746839206 for claims" When I called, a guy who claimed he was Paul Charles said that I have 3 ways to claim, either via my bank account, or by cheque in the post or by flying to the UK at my own expense to claim. I chose the cheque option. He said that I must sms my Full Name, Address with area code, my I.D. Number and Cell phone to his number which is 0746839206 and within 24hrs someone will call to let me know about my cheque. I called the police on 10111 to find out what can someone do if they have the above personal details of mine. The Police advised that they can do everything, comit fraud, take on my identity, use my address and cell number. Wow! With just that information!!!! Schhuuu!!! What a relief to know that I didn't sms them yet! People, my advise, don't get caught in this scam!

    I recieved and sms saying that I had won R960 000. in the the FIFA world cup programme, Claim Code G227 call Mr Parker on 0829514711. I called him for him to give me a UK land line number to verify my winnings. On calling the gentleman that answered said that the office wer in Manchester, London and hang up. This is definately a scam as they asked me to put R285 airtime on my phone....Please be aware.

I told my friend who checked in the computer and find out this sms has been done from April and the amount and the Ref. is the same. Please bring these people to book and they must stop this.

  • MP Molefi 3 Jul 2012, 12:56 PM

    I have just received an sms "Congratulations! your cell number has won R750,000.00 in (FIFA) 2012 mobile award draw, with REF NO:FA286 for claim Call 0784433358." The guy at that phone calls himself James Brown and he say the FIFA offices are in Cape Town, 22 Margaret Street. I have checked this and there is no number 22 on either Street or Road with such a name in CT. What is happening here, is this some scam,if so can these guys be stopped?

  • Michael12 2 Jul 2012, 10:57 AM

    sms received at 4.23am on 2 July "Congrat! Your mobile no. won, R920,000. In FIFA PROMOTION. With Ticket no. WN4. For claims call Mrs Florence on:0736637956. or go to www.fifadraw.page.tl" Called number from lan line and someone "with female voice answered". Said I called about sms and she asked for my name. I asked why she wanted my name and no response and just hung up. Called a second time ...from same lan line and no-one answered.

  • Ronel 19 1 Jul 2012, 09:11 PM

    Funny how one always hope that for you it will be true!!! that this time R450,000 prize money is really mine... needless to say...Received that I needed to call Dr Anderson (some way they think that by adding "Dr" it might seem more important?) Dr Adams is another name to watch out for... also Ms Lilian. Thanks for the internet and for all of you making the time to report your experiences. Olga please just don't do anything, when you phone them, they are going to ask you to make a transfer to a bank account for your price money to be activated, you will then be asked to make a huge amount (Normally around R50 000) of transfer to obtain an "anti terrorist certificate" from the UN (with application for this certificate you have to complete a form with all your personal details - ID Nr, Full mames, Address, etc) and with that form in their hands they will completely destroy your life. According to them this certificate is needed so that your money can be transfered to your bank account in ZA - this is a serious scam and NOT TRUE at all. delete any message you receive like this and warn your friends about it.

  • Olga 29 Jun 2012, 06:38 AM
