    Got an sms on 31 July 2013 stating: RicaSA Congratulationsyour mobile no was randomly selected in RICA Yearly promo 2013. You have won R450,000. Call 0730715146 for claims with Ticket noSP1233. I called the number and the guy says his name is Perry. He asked how old I was and I asked him what does age have to do with the promo and he said one has to be over 30 to qualify. I then said I'm less then 30 and he said goodbye lol These people are taking advantage and where do they get our mobile numbers?
