SMS Fraud

At 09:17:09 I received an sms saying that: congartulations!! Your mobile number won R175,000 in 2012 mobile global promotions, Ref no: 019nyp, to claim your prize contact Mrs. M. Grace on 078 3599 295. When I called the number and asked for their Vat number she gave me a landline number 021 813 9952. But the guy answered as if he was answering  his home line. He refused to give me the " company reg. number". And told me to call customer care line on 083 520 5995 or 078 9599 295 and speak to Grace This must be stopped. We are all required ti RICA now so these people can be traced isnt it?

    I just received a similar one except Mrs Disgrace's phone number is now 0789599295. Why do the rest of us have to go through all the pain of RICA when it doesn't seem to stop fraud and scams?
