    I have won R200000.00 in the RICA networks award 2014. I have spoken to Manda who checked my rev nr and converted that I have won now I have to decide cheque or bank transfer and I have to email my address or banking detail. We I start questioning I could not be provided with who I entered the draw, where there office is for me to collect, when I ask if this is a scam I was assured not, and I can check out the net. She could not supply a address and the she put the phone done. If you not urn you money there is no easy way.

    I also received the SMS saying that I won 450'000 rands and a laptop. Why can't these people be traced and arrested .

  • Willem23 25 Mar 2014, 08:28 AM

    I had the same sms & checked with my service provider that stated it is a scam as Rica is not running a promotion. worst is these scammers even have a website that looks legit and shows previous winners (though sporting similar type cell numbers as mentioned in the blog) .

    I just received this SMS: "Congratulations! You won R350,000 & brand new POLO car in our RICA online promo Ref no ZNK012 for claim call Mrs. Caroline on 0789833163 thank u."
