RICA SCAM


Received a text message to inform me that my Cellphone number has won R250 000 and an HP Laptop in this year's RICA PROMOTION with ticket no  0325p.   I had to call 0812370475 to activate and claim.   I phoned the no given from a landline and was told in order to activate the claim I had to go and purchase R180 airtime from either Checkers, Pick and Pay, Pep etc and then phone the number again.  What a joke!!!
