(RICA SPECIAL). CONGRATULATIONS! YOUR CELL NO. HAS WON R350,000 & A NEW 2013 POLO VIVO CAR. YOUR REF/NO: (0147ZA). FOR CLAIM CALL THE"HELPDESK" @ 0829604558. This is what they send me last night and many other days, its so sad that we have people in our country from different countrys doing this to us to everyone that is in need of hope and faith but with people like them killing our country with lies and misleaded with these sms is very dicrating I hope these people will get some sort of punishment for what they are doing to good people that is why some people loose faith in humanity . Like me.

CONGRATULATIONS:-Your Cell No. was randomly selected on RICA PROMOTION. You won R250,000. Ticket No.0166P. Call Mr. Johnson 0604197343. From 8am to 5pm How can this still be allowed and go on?? This is the second msg I received this morning. My husband got the onethat said you also won the laptop. He phoned the nr. Next hing, they askd for a residential adress to deliver the cheque of R250 000 and laptop, wich he gave. Then some woman phoned and said she is from DHL Couriers. She said that they have a cheque and laptop there to deliver, but he must first pay R1900 into DHL's account. When he asked if this as not a scam, she got very angry and shouted that she is only doing her job at her company. She said that if he think its a scam, he must sort it out with the other people who gave DHL the laptop and cheque to deliver, but she hasn't got time to waste! How is this fraud going to be STOPPED!!? How long will it just go on??

What is Rica doing about all these calls, they all seem to be scams. I was under the impression that cell no. would not be used for someones personal gain. These people should be brought to justice. Come on Rica sort this out find the people responsible for these scams, put an end to all these unwanted sms.

Sjoe, we have all received the same sms's basically, some of us more than once. What I would like to know is where they got the cell phone numbers from? And to use the RICA registration too. Makes it the closest to a 'real' thing and I feel sorry for the peeps who, because they are registered with RICA will follow this through. They need stringing up.

Yep. received one too but I feel very upset! Why is mine only R150000-00 while other people get more and a laptop? Now I feel inferior! LOL!! I reported this to RICA and will see what hapens. What I do not understand is that you have to register at RICA with ID nr (is it a false or bought one?) and an adress (ok... false adres) before you can activate your sim card. How is it not possible to NOT get hold of this people? What are these illegal people doing in our country? Why are they allowed to operate? Do they give "Backhands"?

Yes I also received "Congratulation your mobile has won R950 000. what fool I am to believe that. They ask you your bank account so that they can pay the money into your bank. Then on top if all they want to make money out of you telling you to buy a vodacom airtime, before the next step and then you have to pay IRS R12 900-00 to get your prize money. You must be mad to believe that.please call SA CENTRE 0737041787. ADAM CHRISTIANS. Then he call himself a christiaan when he is robbing people. I also say that these people's fingers must change into fishing hooks and something itched.

Got the sms on 19 March 2013 that Mr Davis on 0790653666 must be phoned. First of all he asked me for bank details or home address (my choice) I then said they can deliver the cheq at my offices. After my sms with Ref RIC16SA and my Cell number, he then sms me back from 0799070315 that I must pay in R2,550 for Insurance fees and must be paid today before delivery of R250 000 the next day. I was rich for 5 minutes and got on this google sight and thanks for it. Because it was RICA I really thought I was the winner but surely nothing is for free and as a single mom - will not be able to take chances like this. Wanted to phone the police to track Mr Davis down but know I would be unsuccessful

Just got the same sms this morning, so sick of these scams. Went through the list and saw it was exactly the same reference nr and tel nr as Josie posted on 28 January. Surely RICA can do something about this, they must have hundreds of cellphone numbers - why not just block them permanently or something or lock up the bastards!!

Beware.

These people are frauds and definately need to be arrested. I lost R110 airtime voucher today. I apparently won R250 000 and I need to pay another R2570.00 to redeem my prize (What a lot of hogwash). I have spoken to 3 different people and they are still answering their cellphone numbers as I have been calling them every five minutes. These are the following cellphone numbers: 081 337 0520, 079 731 0789, 084 630 8552. They are black people who are messing around with peoples hopes and dreams.. Its really disgusting and I feel so bad because I have spent my last money to pay for their airtime of R110 to scam innocent people. BASTARDS

i received a sms today @ 08h54 indicating that I've won a Rica Yearly Promotion Of R450,000.00 and a laptop and I have to phone Thembeka @ 0735237285 with a Ref No to use. On phoning Thembeka, she said I have to activate this win by buying R200,00 Telkon voucher and phone again with pin number and my banking details. Is this a scam or the truth. If it's a scam, is there anything RICA and law enforcement agencies can do to stop this as I think there are believers out there like I nearly could have been!
