NK2p, call Mrs pamelle 0784935817 for claim" I called her and gave her my ref no. she told me that I have won and gave me the discription in the sms. she asked me how I want my money, I said a check.

    Hahaha I received an sms that I won 950-000 in an afcon mobile promo ,gave me a ref number and a cell number 081 776 3500(their cliams department) to call between 8 and 5 ,I called and it went straight to voice mail, and I wondered where they got my number because I have it 3 days, maybe the Rica system is not 100% safe if stupid people like the ones who are sending us these sms's can get hold of our numbers

    I received a SMS stating that I "won R 195000.00 and a laptop in the RICA Yearly promotionwith Ref no. NK2p, call Mrs pamelle 0784935817 for claim" I called her and gave her my ref no. she told me that I have won and gave me the discription in the sms. she asked me how I want my money, I said a cheque. She asked me to sms her my name, address and a ref number. I sent her that, after 30min I called her again and asked me to buy data bundles for R110 and not use them until they call me regarding my cheque. I then decided to google this and found this, thanks

  • Johan Badenhorst 18 Dec 2012, 09:44 AM

    I got that now and I decided to google it and see if there's such but lucky I got this page. Well they must stop what they doing,it sucks... Thanks guys for making us aware.

  • nonhlanhla sibiya 14 Dec 2012, 11:31 AM

    i got the same sms and when i called them they said i must buy a 110 airtime and not recharge in my mobile no but give it to them and i just ignored them

  • MS3 13 Dec 2012, 01:26 PM

    I also had the same experience. I suggest not to wait for the money. That is fraud. If they ask you to pay some money or airtime voucher or any format of money just ignore and don't pay.
