    I've received this text today 10/12/2012. This scam has clearly been running for almost 4 months, this is unacceptable and I hope that something can be done soon to stop this e-harassment.

    11 October 2012, I received and SMS AT 7H28: ALERT FOR CLAIMS: Ref No: P786 Your mobile has just won 9000.000 in the PEPSI PROMO, For claims, call the SA CLAIMS CENTRE ON 0710522151. I was told to use my cellphone number to phone them back and sthey started asking me for my date of birth. Upon brobing them, this guy told me he is Mr Mike Maxwell from Cape Town and had an accent of black foreign people. Then I dropped my fone. People BEWARE.

    14 September 2012 I recieved an SMS Saying I won R900,000.00 in the Pepsi Yearly Promo, UK. Ref no.P986 and to call 0833623858 to claim the prize....I knew it was a scam but was curious so I phoned the number from my work landline and they had this whole speech that made the thing sound legit. They asked me for my first 6 Digits of my I.D. and Bank account number to register including my name. Shortly after they said to finalise the registration I had to go to the nearest Supermarket and buy 2 x R275 vodacom vouchers and phone them back. After the registration was complete, England offices would confirm my Banking Details to deposit the money......Fortunately something told me to Google and see if anyone else was contacted in the same way. People beware of being a victim of Fraud.

    On 28 Aug 2012 at 08h34 I got an sms - I get this sort of thing by email too and know by now that it is a try at getting at my small pension, so I did not reply. It's the first one I got on my phone (and I hope it's the last): "CONGRA!! UR SIM NO: HAS WON SUM OF R450 000 & B BERRY 9300 IN COCA COLA PROMO! HAD IN UK! UR Ref No:J24.
