    2347064822032, 2348173690938 I have received calls from these numbers before getting the sms informing me about my winning from OMO Promotion. They sound lime Nigerians I wonder if they are not part of the fraud scheme

    i received an sms, my phone has won R475000 on Rica global promotion, to claim a prize i must provide my banking details or residential address where they cn deliver the cheque. when i ask for the Head office telephone number they refuse to give it to me.

  • Beverley4 14 Feb 2014, 09:26 AM

    I got the same sms. These people are really wasting a person's time. As if the economy it not bad enough they come with these silly scams. When I told the lady that I am on the website now she actually had more questions for me. How can these pople get away with this?

  • Collin 8 Jan 2014, 02:24 PM

    I just won the 2014 Yearly Rica Promotions, reference number and all. All I have to do is call Mrs Nomsa Khumalo. While I am talking to her I will as her where the toot fairy lives and whether there is really gold at the end of the rainbow.

  • Sandy10 2 Aug 2013, 10:05 AM

    Received from 0823536274 this morning. Congratulation! your cell number has won R20000 in the GLOBAL RICA PROMO 2013 Win code SA08#. For claim contact Mrs Lydia Edwin on tel 0848705629. I am convinced that registering our sim cards with Rica has a lot to do with this scam. Since our numbers were collected onto a database that can be accessed we get junk like this on an almost daily basis. Not to mention the smses from insurance companies rooting for business and other entities offering specials of some kind. If I dont recognise the number I normally just delete the message without bothering to read it further. I have received a similar sms about my "winnings" on some or other promo three times so far this week
