    I have also recieved these smses, this time i just took a try and call these Nigerians. it was on the 29 april 2013... he asked my ref number and he confirmed what is on the sms... he gave me to options for me to recieve the money, i must send him my accound no or address for the delivery of the cheque. i really dont know this ppls intentions and how do the manage to stay long in SA, why are they not being traced and arrested. We have mos a new law of RICA. This ppls are very dengerous, they have no lan line only cell phone. South Africans lets be awake, foreigners in our country working together with our fellow brothers/sister are trying to enrich themself unlawfully and we buy their nonsense.

  • Sharette Kern 29 Apr 2013, 09:55 AM

    I also had the same scam from a mrs sonia owen on number 076 184 6245. I hope it is only the prepaid voucher she steals.

  • Nel2 23 Apr 2013, 09:06 AM

    The numbers I have for lerato promotions is: 0741675990 and 0722297693

  • Nel2 23 Apr 2013, 08:58 AM

    Does anyone have any information as to what can happen if you give someone your name, surname, cell no, and street address, should this be a scam?

  • Nel2 23 Apr 2013, 08:53 AM

    The lady also said that she is from Lerato promotions and that she needed to talk to her manager to find out when the cheque will be posted. But she said her name is Lerato and the company name is Lerato promotions so why would she need to speak to her manager if she Lerato the owner of Lerato promotions.

  • Nel2 23 Apr 2013, 08:50 AM

    I received an sms sying that i won R185 000 in a nokia promotion with ref: 0029NKP and that i needed to give them my bank details or steet address to courier cheque. I am sure this is a scam as so many people have the same ref no and that the lady (Letrato) sounded as if she is lying. I gave them my address lets just hope no one comes to my house.

  • Linda4 18 Apr 2013, 10:11 AM

    I also received an sms to claim a proze of R450 000 from winning on the Nokia Promotion. The lady on the phone asked me to buy Vodacom R110 airtime and send it to her beore they activate my prize. The number I called is 074 5335889 with ticket number 0166p. Can this be tracked and law enforced on these people as she confirmed that they are based in Gateway Shiopping centre Durban

  • Lifa 17 Apr 2013, 06:07 PM

    I received a message that my cell no. was randomly selected on NOKIA PROMOTION. I won R95000. Ticket No. 0166P. Call Mrs Lerato 0719703325 from 8am to 5pm. This is a scam.

  • flip fouche 9 Apr 2013, 08:40 AM

  • Neels2 8 Apr 2013, 01:23 PM

    I just received the same SMS and the same request from the lady, Melesa. Watch out people, this is a scam. If 1000 people all send her a R100 voucher number, she does not have to get air time for a very long time and/or can sell this on and make a lot of money!!

  • ELVIS 8 Apr 2013, 11:16 AM
