    I just received an sms from 0826836493 stating the following (spelling and everything exact): "CONGRATULATION YOUR MOBILE NUMBER HAS WON R350,000.00 IN RICA 2013 ALL NETWORKS PROMO REF NO:RIC00212SA.CALL ON 0218395766 FOR YOUR CLAIM." I have seen a similar comment with that exact landline so this is just a heads up that they're at it again

    I just got this message. Unfortunately, I am West African like them and I am fully aware of how fraud is perpetrated on phone and on mobile. PLEASE, let no one in South Africa fall for this kind of crap. Life in most parts of West Africa is difficult due to decades of mismanagement by our governments. The need to migrate outside our nations is huge. HOWEVER, I take exception to my fellow West Africans doing this kind of business in a foreign nation. I will forever stand up against West African involvement in crime, prostitution and drugs in South Africa. The fact that South Africa has given us a place to work and build decent lives require us to support the country positively. We DO NOT have to pay them back in such a bad taste. Please, anyone with the right documentation must report this individual. With his email address and new phone number which is 0737413604 the South African Police can track him down. No one knows how many innocent South Africans have fallen for this kind of scam.

    Also received SMS RICA: you have won R196,000 in rica yearly promotion, your Ref/no:019nkp contact the agent mr Fred 0n 078 811 3635 for your prize. It's worth noting that i received the same reference number as three other people above. If that isn't a clear indication that this is a scam, nothing is. Also, I received this sms on my vodacom modem's sim card. I've never given this number to anyone and have never even sent an sms from this number. As I see it, the only way those bastards could get hold of my number is either vodacom or whoever is in charge of RICA sold it to them. My money is on RICA as all the spam SMS' started the moment I rica'd my SIM. Even my mother receives constant spam sms' after I rica'd her sim. These scammers should go suck on some donkey balls!

  • Nakedi Nkoana 20 Nov 2012, 10:09 AM

    Hi i got an sms this morning(20 november 2012) claiming that i my sim had won 850 000 rands, and to purchase R270 worth of airtime, them call colleen back. she was then supposed to take my account details and send me the money. The hints that this cauld be a scam are: the fact that i someone's name appears on the sms... if Rica did send me that msg, them they would have some kind of call centre thing. and why would colleen be at work at 07:30 in the morning. im sad that people resort to such things to acquire money and the chances of this working to benefit them is slim. Find an honest way of making a living and stop smooching off of hard working people.

    Same thing - R250,000 in rica promo. Received from no 0812856552 to call Mr Mark on 0786709375. Just sent sms back to say their numbers have been reported. Everyone should take note that you NEVER get something for nothing - If you win a competition you have not entered ... it's a SCAM.

  • Tman 17 Nov 2012, 02:30 PM

    guys i recieved and sms saying i've won R195 000, from rica promo, that i should call dave, this is stupid, i called him and called the Holy ghost fire to his ears, i'm hez deaf now... this is stupidity.

  • Karen H 16 Nov 2012, 10:20 AM

    I called the number back on 0710178647 and was told that I would be sent proof of payment. My bank advised that they could try to put a debit order through and I should just keep an eye on my account. I told the person (Mark / Judith) that the police and bank were watching my account should they try anything. I am usually very sceptical about stuff like this but after being retrenched I got a bit excited. Please be careful.

  • Karen H 16 Nov 2012, 09:49 AM

    Received sms not email.

  • Karen H 16 Nov 2012, 09:48 AM

    I received a similar email. I can't believe I was stupid enough to give them my banking details. I've just been retrenched as well. Now to sort out my bank.

    I fully agree with Alin. I received the following sms this morning: "your number weas drawn as one of the lucky winnersin the Rica Yearly Promo: You've won R150,000. Ref no: N001kp.To claim contact 0843241194." After confirming with my service provider that no such promo exists I phone them and asked two questions and the line went dead.

  • Alin Slater 12 Nov 2012, 10:30 AM

    This BS has to stop now! I have just recieved yet another sms from "RICA PROMO's" telling me now that I have won R195 000-00 just because I have rica'd my phone. Tell me something: do these Nigerians honestly think that we are all stupid enough to be bamboozled by this feeble attempt to get our banking details? I mean, REALLY, you are gonna go with that? You should rather stick to selling drugs and whores you stupid bastards. At least with the whores, they can wash thier crack and sell them again, with regards to drugs, well, I wish that all the dealers out there get itchy balls and that thier fingers turn to fish hooks at the same time... good luck mo'fo's.
