    Lets irritate the living daylights out of them and all call them so they are forced to change the number again. I got one with the number 0607114256 and teased her. Loved the way the women got irritated, I phoned a few times till she would not speak anymore. Ha ha, take that you bunch of morons.

  • Charls2 18 Sep 2014, 09:24 AM

    Do not believe any scam where you have to pay money to receive money, they are so rich why don't they buy their own airtime. And do not give any personal details over the phone to anyone. A company that runs out of airtime. What a joke!!!! And don't call them back on your cell phone, use a landline so they don't pester you.

  • Gwen3 16 Apr 2014, 07:07 PM

I'm actualy planning to make a small loan for which if its a scam I don't loose the money one shot, but if its real and some person did made the tranfir of those thousands of rands the for sure this scam can be confirmed or busted.

    RICASA congratulations! your mobile number was selcted in Rica promotion. you have won R350.000, ref:121CN55ZA . To claim call 0838681345 for your prize. I called the number and spoke to David William and when he told me to call back in 5 minutes, i googled Ricasa and Woila. many people have been getting the same sms. This is utter. I called the number again and told David William that I know this is a scam and he did not even try to defend himself. he just said thank you and I cut the call. These people are inconsiderate and don't realise that they are hurting others, All please BEWARE and don't be gullable.4

    18 April 2013 I received an SMS 'u have won R950 000 on Rica 2013 mobile promo'. I immediately thought to check this out on the net before replying or calling. Thanks to all those who have already added this to the net as a warning. Let's carry on getting word out so that innocent people are not conned by those with evil intentions.

  • Zoe3 27 Mar 2013, 06:58 AM

    The first thing a person needs to ask themselves: did I enter any competitions? Then if not ignore the sms because even if you do sms back you are still wasting your airtime, I received an sms this morning too, I've won 750.000, out of curiosity I googled them to see what other people are saying about these illeterate greedy fools, all they do is try scam people, be it by advertising unexisting rental properties on the internet, once u inquire they then send you a long life story,. To cut the long story short, I'd like to say to my fellow south africans" be on guard, watch out and never part with your hard earned money. Good luck and have a lovely day.

  • Khanyi5 1 Feb 2013, 11:59 AM

    We need to be alert people of God, the scumbegs are out there to rob us if we are sleeping and want monies we did not work for, the my father was so excited he couldnt breathe well because he has won such a lump sum of money. One Nigerian guy once said if a person is robbed through 419 it is because that person is also cruel, how do you go about running after the money you did not work for, knowing very well you didnt enter any competion? let us be careful bcz right now they are so clever they dont mind you giving them your physical adress so they can monitor coming and goings they break into your house after that who do you blame because you gave a stranger your home address?

  • Jeanette5 30 Jan 2013, 12:24 PM

    Hi There, the same RICA Scam. The woman , named Magriet van der Merwe had the cheek to say that I must be grateful for this BLESSING. Magriet immediately backed off when I told her that the net is warning people against them.

  • Erika 29 Jan 2013, 04:24 PM

    Same old, same old. Received sms from 0791469539 - my cell nr HAD WON R350 000 in Rica 2013 promo draw. WOW!!! (NOT. . ., I had to call 011 075 3915. A very conceited male answered. I started asking the questions to which he couldn't respond. He became very agitated and called me a few choice names, saying I obviously do not want or need the money (If only he knew...) Next moment - the welcoming sound of silence. Utter bliss! Beware, this IS a scam.

  • Dominique 29 Jan 2013, 11:15 AM

    Also been scammed today by Rica. You have won R250 000 with ref: 1110 please contact us. Which I did and then went on and bought R110.00 airtime for them to use freely. They wanted my banking details and I told them no so they said they will send me a chq for the amount. I then smsd them with my physical (Alias address) address for them to deliver the cheque to It was followed by another sms from the cellphone numbers 079 731 0789, 081 337 0520, 084 630 8552 - they wanted me to pay R2700 for the chq to be released. I TOLD THEM THAT I CALLED THE COPS. Please get hold of these people. Its so sad to toil with peoples hopes and dreams. I paid R110.00 out of this mistake and how many other gullible people are out there who do the same. I would like to catch them. Also gave their address: 44 Bellville Street, Cape Town. I spoke to a Mr Williams. PEOPLE BE AWARE OF SCAMS LIKE THIS.
