  • Gumedenk 28 Feb 2014, 09:53 AM

    I just got the same thing but this time it was not an sms but a network notification and yes it was a foreigner on the other side, dropped the call.

  • GRAHAM9 30 Jul 2013, 04:25 PM

    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

  • dudu6 4 Jul 2013, 10:23 AM

    This world its full corruption,fraud, I also recived the sms this morning says I've won 250000, and I must buy 110 airtime vodacom but I'm using mtn, that's where I became suspicious. Thanks to Google. When I google it I found many ppl cmplng with this 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.

  • Seba 29 May 2013, 10:45 AM

    Same shit , hmmm isn't Rica in place to stop this type of crimes in the first place. If you can't stop them join them lol. All of you have won a billion Dollars,Iphone,House give me your credit card details ...IF IT'S TO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT IS. And if you did win that kind of money don't you think they would contact you in person rather then send you a sms.. Be safe ..

  • Siba 22 May 2013, 12:07 PM

  • Nick 23 Apr 2013, 11:10 PM

    was it not the reason of rica to stop crime? they give their phone numbers for you to contact, so how difficult could it be to track them?? after all. they had also had to rica their numbers before use !!!

  • Lizette6 22 Apr 2013, 12:28 PM

    I received the following message today: 'CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE WON R250,000 AND A LAPTOP IN RICA YEARLY PROMOTIONS, YOUR REF NO UK84 FOR YOUR CLAIM CONTACT MRS IRENE ON 084 478 4815 the message was sent from 0741267768 I did phone Irene, she asked me to phone back in 2 minutes, so I did, and a male answered the phone, said Irene is busy and I need to send my personal information via sms to the above number, and then buy R150.00 MTN airtime, but not use the voucher, they need to use the voucher to activate my ref no so that the money could be transfered to my bank account. 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.

  • karien4 21 Apr 2013, 08:32 PM

  • lIZZY 19 Apr 2013, 09:50 AM

    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.

  • ash6 18 Apr 2013, 02:05 PM

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)

    I also got sms this morning stating that I won R450 000 from RICA, that I should call claim agent 0849280219 for activation and claim. The thing is that we must do something about this to get the scammers to pay up the money that they promise. Technology allows that one can track these numbers to be able to hold of these bastards who keep getting away with it.

    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?

  • Louis7 24 Jan 2013, 02:23 PM

    We also received the same sms and documents. I have to pay R2610.00 and the deadline for the payment is the 25th of January 2013 according to the latest fax I received. This document is signed by the Reserve Bank Director, Mr Martins Buda.

    I received a sms this morning that I had won money in a RICA yearly promotion and that I should contact Clinton on a certain number. Something bothered me about this so I googled rica yearly promotions and came across this fraudelent sms being sent. Watch out guys if you never entered into any competition never give your details in your desperate time for some money.
