    I received an sms from No. 0766921749 that says 'Congratultions. You have won R450 000.00 from Rica Promotional Centre with Ref No. R2013. Call Mr Benson at 0735096352 and make sure your Ref No is Activated. I called the above 073 No and a man confirmed to be Mr Benson said I must go buy airtime amounting to R220 and send the Numbers to him then he can activate my Ref for me to get my reward. Is this a scam or what? How can I win a prize and pay the money I do not have, to redeem the prize? I urgetnly seek your assistance.

    I received an sms last nigh from 0817498307, claiming I won R120 000 and had to call a MR HENRY on 0728052047. I've called him confirmed that I had won indeed but had to go buy VODACOM air time for R110 and phone her back with voucher number without recharging my phone. I think him is still waiting for airtime to come in ....
