    Surely all cell numbers need to be RICA'd so the networks should be able to track the scammers. correct?

    Saw some comment on calling the cops, in Nigeria the cops are likely involved in this, no international actions the last 10 years has changed a thing. They are on top SCAM list worldwide, its a billion industry

    I received one from this number 0720748538 saying: CONGRADULATIONS!! your Simcard has won R250,000,00 from (Rica Promo) with Ref no:SA01RP.Contact RICA Help line @ 0614159262 for Activation & claim. Firstly I did not enter any Promo. Secondly R250,000....like seriously, who is going to give you that for doing nothing. Thirdly Since when is a helpline a cell phone number. Is there any fraud line to call and clamp down on these criminals? Where do these Idiots get numbers, or do they just randomly type a number in. It's become annoying because its not the first time.
