    I received an sms telling me that I have won R195000 in a rica promotion. I called the Rica office number listed on the Ricca website and the man answering sounds suspiciously similar to the Ricca promo guy.??? Both ?Nigerian (sorry Nigeria) Does anyone have the correct number for Ricca so that other people may call to verify/report if they receive these fraudulent smses? Can a real Ricca agent tell us whether Ricca even has this type of promotion please?
