    Received the following sms: veels geluk, u sel foon nommer was gekies as n' wen nommer in die kompetisier ref rca13j R250,000. Skakel elizabeth potgieter 0723659483 vir u prys.... I suspect the number that sent the message is that of an internet site so they can send in bulk, their real numbers are the ones written in the message so that they can be contacted and proceed with the scam, investigating the number where the sms was sent is a waste of time

    I received an sms at 07H39 on the 5th Feb 2013 reding thus: Your mobile number has won R250 000 in the RICA 2012/13 All NETWORKS PROMO, Ref No:RIC6241SA. Call Portia or Ben on 0810039906 for your activation & claim. This message came from 0818353411. I phone them and I spoke to a Zulu lady who claimed to be portia and she said I should buy a vodacom airtime of R110 and sms the unused pin number to them, for activation of my prize. She then said an sms will be sent to me indicating when and how I will receive my price.I did that and I have not received any sms since then. Pls trace these people and arrest them.
