RICA yearly promotion

SMS from +27813371005Congratulation! Yoy have won R250 000 and a laptop in a Rica yearly promotion. To claim call 0722281314.

    I got the same sms with ticket no.z166p. I called via my home telephone to confirm and a lady picked up, sounding very professional and I asked if this is for real. She assured me that it was legit and asked me to sms my name and home address to 0603989371 as I requested my money being sent to me in a form of a cheque.Still awaiting my cheque.

    Received SMS to call 0603989371 to activate winning ticket. Our number had won R195 000 in RICA Promo with ticket no. Z166p. I have to call judith OR MR Mark. I was suspicious because the names were in lower case and in capital letter as shown above. Very suspect! Date 23 January 2013

    i received the same sms now and called the number given and spoke to this foreigner who then told me that i have won R250000 and then asked me for my account details and i asked him to confirm my details on his Pc as my ref should bring up my details since i have rica'd using my details and he hung up.Something needs to be done about these foreigners taking chances like this.

    I also became a victim this morning with an sms saying "Congratulations you have won (470 000) from RICA YEARLY PROMOTION . your REF NO ( RI22CA). call 0837668687 for your claim." I phoned knowing it was a scam just wanted to make them feel uncomfortable. The sadest thing about this is that they send it to people who dont have internet access then they send the vouchers, because these sms's sounds tempting and it comes when you really need money.

    I received the same sms this morning: "Congratulations! Your cell number has won R250000 @ the Rica Yearly Promotion. REF NO_RQ44P. Call Claim Center @ 0780232564 for your cash prize!". The sms was sent from the number 0817397572. I didn't give them a call as I discovered the above comments upon checking it out on the internet.

    Ek het 'n sms vanoggend ontvang van 0712268626 waarin ek geluk gewens word vanaf RICA 2012 omdat my sel R250,000 gewen het. Ek moet Magriet van der Merwe kontak by 0712266294. Verwysing RCA 385C. Kan die mense nie leer dat met die Internet mens eers so iets opvolg voordat jy enige iets sal doen nie. Dis nou as mense skerp genoeg is om dit te doen. Dis net vir my hartseer dat die siek goed nou in Afrikaans gedoen word. Jullle is gemerk.
