  • Namhla 27 Aug 2014, 08:01 AM

    a few minutes from now, I just received an sms saying the rica company has rewarded me with 175,000 and they gave me a ref no. surprisingly when I call the number on the sms, the so called Ms. M. Molefe is in the meeting and I have been attended by a guy called Eric, he asked the ref no and my cell number I gave him but with the wrong cell number, guess what he said according to their system everything is correct and continue to say I must send my name and address.

  • Bernadine Corran 18 Feb 2014, 12:08 PM

    I received an sms this morning from RICASA to say "Congratulations your mobile number has won R450 000 in the RICA 2014 MOBILE PROMO. To claim your cash prize please contact 0719495662. There isn't even a name and when I phoned the number just to check it out, it stays engaged so how many people have fallen for it and are now busy phoning this number. We seriously need to stop this scam!!! Desperate people who really need the money are falling for the scam and are possibly loosing eveerything they have.

  • Francis 6 10 Feb 2014, 10:10 AM

    Just received SMS to say that I won R250000,00 in the yearly RICA. I called the number 0848755149 and a "Monica" answered. SO I did went through the info with her just to see where this is going and at the end she said, after giving my cell, that I do qualify and there are 2 options (1) paying it directly into my account (2) by Cheque. So I said Option 2 and then she said, well now I have to SMS to the mentioned nr my Initials, Cell nr, Physical add, Activation Ref, e-mail address and then have to buy a R55 Vodacom Voucher and SMS the reference nr to the mentioned 084 nr. So we closed off the call and then I send and SMS to that 084 nr to say that I need legal proof to verify their existence with RICA SA. So let see if this actually is going to be provided.

  • Vusi3 31 Jan 2014, 12:34 PM

    I also receive these sms of Rica promotions stating that I won R550 000 and I always reply by swearing to the sender badly but they kept on sending the same sms after few months in a different #no. A Xhosa lady in Krugersdorp said she was once hijacked by Nigeria nationals and was forced to answer calls of this fraud, I asked her why she did not tell the SAPS , she said she did but those people can get away with anything and her story was not considered. I mean REALLY SOUTH AFRICANS what have we allowed here

  • lindi5 16 Jan 2014, 11:40 AM

  • Dee20 29 Oct 2013, 12:27 PM

    I also got the Rica scam email that I won R450000,00.I called the number and the guy who answered wanted to know how I want the money - cheque or bank deposit. I told him I'm sending the police to arrest him. He answered: "what do I mean?". Eish!! Why do they have access to our personal cellphone number/details? Why are these people getting away with this??? Is ths website also a joke?? Our legal system is also a joke!! Because NOTHING gets done. Yes, sad thing is most people need the money at the moment. Solution: Don't rica your cell number again.

  • HEIDI6 28 Oct 2013, 09:56 AM

    i also received this message and i am tired of receiving this message that i won 295.000 It is so wrong of them, what worries me why are they still walking around? how come they have not been caught as yet??? this is a lead with their cell no for the police to lock them up once and for all.

  • Adam5 8 Oct 2013, 10:44 AM

    The person (Linda), who took my call, was so confident that she even gave me their address as Block 2B, Canal Walk, Century City. There is no building "2B". If you have won something from RICA, they should have your full name, your ID number and your physical address. That is what you needed to register for RICA in the first place. Pelase do not fall for this scam.!!!

  • Theeban 5 Sep 2013, 12:16 AM

    This is madness! Hw can a person win if they not conciously in a competition? A RICA PROMO??? How can I win R950000 and an HP laptop for doing absolutely nothing? After reading the other many comments and stories I see how the scam has won in some cases, but In most cases It has failed! Although, this sorta thing should come to an end as there are people out there that believe if they buy the R110 airtime and an X amount be paid into the "agent's" account that they will get the winnings delivered and deposited. So come on guys! Help SA get rid of this by continuing to report the scam!

  • Joany 4 Sep 2013, 09:34 AM

  • Marlize7 26 Jul 2013, 03:22 PM

    Well, after reading all of the above, it certainly seams as a lot of people has been scammed - even me. Yes I've also received a sms congratulating me in winning. After phoning the person giving the ref nr. I was referred to a Adams Christian who instructed me to buy 5 x R275 vodacom recharge vouchers, and fax him the pin codes in order for the price money transfer (which was way less than stated initially on the sms !) to be completed. I told him I was at work and could not just leave to go buy the recharge vouchers. That totals up to R1375 which I DO NOT HAVE - I even asked him what guarantee I have that it is not a scam - on which he replies "that is why you received a ref. nr!!!!" And he have been working for the company for four years now!!. Sad to say - I fell for the scam as well - but realised it was a scam in time!!

    Hi everyone who already got there RICA scam sms and everyone who will be getting theirs in the future. Below I've typed out mine exactly and I'd like to point out that an official sms would not have that many stupid errors nor would it tell you to call them. Basically everyone, never respond to competitions you didn't enter yourself and if you do respond to something and they want any sort of fee, immediately know it's bullshit. "Congratulation!!Your mobile number has won you R195,000 in Rica Promo. With ticket no:Z166p. for claims call Mr Nelson 0836682338 to activate your ticket."

  • Bianca13 25 Apr 2013, 09:56 AM

    I received an sms this morning at 09:24 stating the following: “South African RICA act has won you R450 000.00 cash from your SIM registration. Call Mrs Sharon on 0740228125 for payment. Ref ricasa33v. 8:30am-5:30pm. I recently also received an email stating that I won money via RICA and my email address being chosen. I contacted the person involved and when I asked him where he got my email address from he said to me I am not Bill Gates so my details are not confidential. Is this what RICA is being used for? We give our details so that we can get the RICA registration done when we buy a new phone or SIM card and then this is what happens. They are getting our details from someone either working in the department or this whole RICA thing is just a bunch of nonsense. I feel like taking this further because from what I have read on here, no-one has gotten an answer and it just keeps on happening. Someone is going to be caught and when that happens no-one will be able to do anything about it which to me is nonsense. What has our country come to?!!!! Something has to be done and fast!!!

    I received an sms this morning: "CONGRATULATIONS: YOU HAVE WON (R 250,000) FROM (RICA) YEARLY PROMOTION. REF NO. ######KP. CALL NO. 0781131341 FOR CASH PRIZE IMMEDIATELY. So I called from a landline and a Mr Viceour answered the phone from the Claims Call Centre in the Free State. Asked me if I wanted cash in the bank or a cheque. I opted for cheque and then he said to sms address for a 24hr delivery. I found the line very bad and he sounded half asleep. I asked him all sorts of questions and he was unable to answer any of them. He just kept repeating that I must sms my address. Argh!!!
