    My mothere got an sms telling her that she won R350,000 and she must deposit some money so the finecial officer can realise the money in to her account she deposited the money then they paid her with a chaque but they then said that she needs to deposit another amount of money so that she can go to the bank and get that R350,000. Thats when she sent that amount of money but then money did not run throug thats when they askd her to deposit agen. I stopd her coz i saw that they were scaming her. Pleas find these people befor they kill someone for money.

    My friends, I am West African. Please, do not be misled. No lottery company in South Africa will appoint a West African to work with them. And if you have not entered any lottery, do not expect to be called up for any wins. And of course, RICA is a public entity. It will NOT give you "winnings". Why will they have to do so? No SIM cards will work without RICA so why do they have to give you ANYTHING in return for registering. Guys, these are THIEVES! I agree that some of them are discriminated against in the work environment and denied permits to work. HOWEVER, they have NO MORAL JUSTIFICATION to do this kind of job. So please, DO NOT EVEN FOLLOW UP TO SUCH MAILS!
