    I've actually phoned RICA and reported the scam, they took all my details and also told me that there is NO PROMOTIONS running and that my number does'nt have any winnigs. This is clearly a scam, I phoned this ''Stephen'' guy also, he asked me if he can transfer the money into my bank account or it he should mail me a cheque. . . I said the cheque, and then he wanted all my details... NO THIS if a scam people . . .

    I also received a similar sms from 0711713887. Why do we even do RICa and what does it help to report these because othing is done about it and they just carry on? I bet even this posting will not get any action or response.
