Rica yearly promotion


I received an sms saying "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE WON R250-000 AND A LAPTOP IN RICA YEARLY PROMOTION.  YOUR REF NO .{SA012} FOR CLAIM CALL 0827037719.  I called and he said his name is NELSON and that is legit and for real, and he told me I have to buy R180 MTN airtime and to sms him the pin and it will activated.  I did it and then he told me to pay R1000 to release the price and for handling and courier charges. The account holder was Mr LIVHUWANG MOKOTLA.  Account no: 1020708174 and it was with NEDBANK.  And I also did it and then he told me he is on his way with the price and when I call him he will come with excuses like they were in a car accident etc.  It's been 2 days and still no word.  I have learned my lesson and I posted a comment here just to prove that it is a big scam.

    I have also received an sms stating that I have won R195 000, 00 ref SR104. I am going to give this info to one of my friends at the Hawks and see where it leads to. This is a typical 419 Scam by Nigerians.

    Rica yearly promotion sent bogus SMS and said I must contact Mr John on 0745575065 for claim. I'm going to report it @ Oudtshoorn Police station.
