I got an sms stating that my cell number was selected in Rica.  I have won R295 000 and and HP laptop.  I must call Mrs Blessing on 0792426910 for claim.  Ref/ZNK012.

I phoned them and a guy answered and asked if I want the money transferred or send by cheque to my addr.  I told him it must be send per mail.  He then asked me to sms him my address and then call him again.  I did that and he then said he haven't received my sms and that I must send it again.  I told him I am not going to do that and he said that I must do as he says and got that he is working and I mustn't waste his time.  I dropped the conversation.

    I've realised that there are many people who are being targeted by this group of white color criminals and it seems as if our police investigators are failling to get to the buttom of this crime (0739042571 - This is the number I must call)(0741371614 - This is the number I they used to send me an sms)
