The Incident

I received this sms saying:  CONGRATS!  YOU ARE A WINNER OF R350.00 FROM SELF-SERVICE ATM PROMO.REF: ZA99SS.  TO CLAIM VISIT / e-mail / 011 050 1777. 

What a load of nonsense!!  I caught the guy out over the phone, I called 0734387173 (number on website).  Apparently you have to go in to the office in EC to claim your money.  So I asked him for directions, knowing he is lying, and after a few vague answers he put the phone down in my ear.  He said his name is Bruce Thomas, and the address that I must go to is 77 Eastbourne Road, PE. 

What a load of nonsense I wish they could spend their time actually meaning something to society!!
