I got an SMS on my cellphone CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE WON R250 000.00 AND A LAPTOP IN RIKA YEARLY PROMOTION. YOUR REF... FOR CLAIM CALL 0720834659 The message was send from 0817571123. I called the number (0720834659) and "Nelson" congratulated me and told me that I "won". He instructed me to wait for a call from the registration department, which I should answer straight away. The SMS duly came through from 0817727704 REKA ACCOUNT DEPT.... advising me to pay R1800.00 delivery charges so my "prize" can be delivered today. I had to call Joe on 0768889632. After duly calling the number, "Joe" advised me to pay R 1800.00 into a FNB account Number 62388595161. belonging to Samkelo Mkumatela, who is supposed to be the courier who will deliver my parcel today!!
I've alerted my local FNB branch, who confirmed that such an account actually does exist. These people are very clever and very convincing. Needless to say I recognised it as a scam, but others are not always so lucky. Please try to stop these very ruthless individuals from getting rich at the cost of desperate people who live in hope of a miracle.
