Got the rica promotion message today from 0715270912 asking me to contact Mr Daniel on 0844691486. The cellphone companies must use RICA to locate these arseholes and take the numbers out of use. Having to buy new SIM cards all the time and register them will impact their scam

hi guys i have received the same stupit sms, saying i won 250 000 from Rica Yearly Promotion. And i did call the lady to find out the info of their company, i forced her to give me the Landline for their company and guess WHAT...... this Idiots, they are in Cape Town and their landline is 021 836 9355. I did call and it was answered by the Nigerian guy and he asked me if i wanted the Staff ( i think, he thought i was looking for some drugs. And he was concern about how i got the landline,because only the junkies had that.

So I told him i'm not going to buy airtime and give them the voucher number, he just said, okay and hanged up on me.

Guys is too much about these mesages of congratulations you have won money which you never enter into any competition. I'm one of the people used to receive it. they do it in the name of RICA. why RICA and all cellphone networks work together just to trace all these numbers who they belong to and act accordingly to discipline these people.

I called them and they sounded dodgy. I had two options, either EFT (which they did not know what it means) or cheque in the post. I wanted to know if I can come collect the cheque rather at their offices in Canal Walk, but they said it is high security and no public is allowed! Thank you for this website! Huge relief that I did not act on this. (3 April)

Ja nee! They can't even spell! I was asked to pay R2550 tax before the Reserve Bank would release funds. They are phoning from Bloemfontein. The guy said all calls are recorded so I said to him "what for training purposes for the next poor scam trainees!"

I sent an email message through this block about a message I received on the 23/01/2013 informing me that I have won R450,000 with a reference number to phone Thembeka @ 0735231285. When I phoned her, she said I need to pay R200 @ Telkom in order to activate my win. Hence I wrote you to investigate if this is true. Unfortunately, I've heard any response from you yet. Any advice?
