Thank u guys for posting comments on here so we can be warned. ITS TIME RICA DID SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.

  • Denisha 11 Apr 2013, 09:20 AM

    I just received a msg saying that my number has won R250.000.00 in the rica yearly promotion and a number n ref no was given. When I dailed the num some guy answered with a foreign accent and asked if I wanted it paid into my bank account or if I want a cheque. I said cheque then he said that i would have to reply with my address etc and then went on to say that I had to buy mtn airtym to the value of R180 and not activate it and sms the airtym pin number as my new reference num. These people need to get a real job and not sponge of others

    Just received this sms Rica 250 000 won with Rica yearly promo - I phoned and the guy was defenitely a forreigner with a heavy accent. He wanted postal, id, cell nr etc. I asked for a website - and he said he would forward it via sms after I had sms'ed the details. I hung up. Usually in these type of emails or sms's they make spelling errors - which big companies won't make on formal documentation to clients - first give away - spelling congratulation (s)...you have won. BE WARE - DO NOT GIVE ANY INFO!!!!!!!!!!!
