RICA Promotion


SMS received : Congratulations you have won R500 000 from the RICA promotion. Ref number supplied. Contact RICA helpline for payment 071 516 2603. I dialled the number to find out and was told to sms the same number with my banking details so that the deposit could be made into my account.Surely there must be a way to trace these mobile numbers.
