I received and SMS saying that I had won R250 000 and a laptop in the Rica Yearly Promotion, was given a reference number and advise to call 072 228 1314 to claim. When I called I spoke to a man named Nelson and he advised me that I need to send him and SMS with my name and surname and bank and account number to the same cellphone number and then call him back. I sent the details and called him back, he then advise that I needs to buy a R250 Telkom prepaid voucher at my nearest Engen, Spar, Shoprite or Checkers and call him back with the voucher pin. Once they have received the pin number, they will load the payment authorisation into their system and the prize money will be transferred by 12pm this afternoon. The voucher and pin story sounded fishy so I Googled the "Rica Yearly Promotion" and got the link to the "Report a Crime" website.
