RICA Promotion


I received an sms from 072 288 5757 that reads as follows:-
Contratulation! you have won R195.000. and laptop in RICA promotion. Ref No(RL41) call 0837131477 for claim.
I called the both numbers and eventually came through to a lady calling herself Vanessa.  She advised me that I must call back in five minutes and that their land line is 021 813 6339.  I should then speak to a gentleman by the name of Mr Adam Johan.
I called a bit later and a gentleman answered and when I told him that this was a scam and that I was aware of it and that I would be reporting them.  He started cussing me (the "F" word etc) and I hung up.  I sounded extremely aggressive.

    Rica promotion also sent me a message that I won R195,000 no: z166p. For claims call Judith or Mark on 0737840102, to activate the ticket. I won't phone them because It sounds like the 100's of sms and scam e-mails received on a monthly basis.

    The fact that these idiots can't spell, is a clear give away
