Cell fone promotions

I get an SMS on my cellfone saying "Congratulations!!! You have won R500.000 in the Nokia Rica ACT 2013 Promotion. Ref SA 11 nk. Contact Mr Williams on: 071 9432502 or 079 834 2619 to claim your prize". I call the 079 number with my landline, a man answers. He says he is Mr Williams, and I must send him banking details, name and Ref number, as quickly as possible!!! *he must think I'm MAD!* I google RICA contact details, then the first ad that comes up is "Rica yearly promo | 06 Apr 2012 | reportacrime.co.za". So Im quite certain that these people have records of our numbers and the cell phone numbers they are using to recieve our calls on are also RICA'd. I'm sure they can be traced!!!

    Just received ams : "you have won R500, 000 in the NIKIA RICA ACT PROMO.' REF no : SA11NK Contact Mr Rom. very odd, he asked me for my ref number and told me to call back in 5 min after he checked the system. Cell phone number to call Mr Rom 0714322659. something fishy. Def not calling back.

    I received the same sms now, R500 000 rica Nokia Act 2013 Promo, called the guy and he wanted to send me a check. There is no landline and sms is not generated from a domain rather by cell. Big Scam!

    allow me to inform you that not every number can be traced electronically, but if u have thousands to spend on P.I then maybe u can trace veterans..... Case in point, there are still already RICAd sim cards that one can easily buy around pta and jhb, anybody can buy them they are being sold on the streets, who is details are they ricad with, i don't know. The least you can do which will make a difference, warn people on your contacts lists (whatsapp n email) encourage them to also warn other people. Keep exposing these scams
