No. 110NO and I was tp ask for Mr Dube.  Unfortunately he was not available and I was assisted by Thandeka...She asked the above details confirmed Ref. No. etc...She then asked for banking details either cheque or savings i then said i don't have she asked me to pls sms my banking details to the following no. 078 352 7112, i then asked her what were the procedures thereafter....She said the when details are received she will then take to the financial department and they will then proces the account and soon thereafter i will receive another sms stating that the full amount has been deposited into my account..As tempting as this may be, i am not a fool, but would also wanna know what is this all about?If any one can please assist me....

Can't we report these number to the service providers ?

    I Receive numerous messages claiming I have won so much money from the following number 072 503 8599. The cell providers need to block these numbers as we are supplying the information.

    I received this sms this morning:- Congratulations:Your mobile has won R2.5M for IMF Award with Ref no: IMF59706. CALL 0796828871 to activate & claim your prize The best is to ignore it totally. If the Police were concerned (like they should be), there would have been a hotline to report these no's so that the cell phone service providers could trace their RICA or block them!
