    We all get these but the truth is that there are people out there that fall for these dumb ads scams. Mostly the uneducated. I. Am sure that once in in contact with the stammers, a fraud case can be opened as they will ask you to deposit cash into an account number that they provide. Oh but then wait,our police can't do anything,they will tell you that it is a civil matter. Bummer,lol

    Good day. Here is the sms i received!!! I actually pity these poor people sending the sms's - it must be difficult living with so few braincells!!!! SMS From 27797186599 Received Nov 12, 2013 20h08 Congratulation! 2013 Global Mobile Promo has awarded your cell no R175000 through a random search. Ref no 0169GPR, call TINA SITHOLE on 0785848368 for claim.

  • Charlene4 11 Nov 2013, 12:07 PM

    Please somebody at Global Mobile Promotions could you stop sending these sms's regarding winning R175 000.00.....I am so tired of it!! Such a joke to think that if somebody honestly won money, they would have to phone with a REF number????, half the time the person answering is not able to answer the questions. I have just been asked to call GRACE Botha on 0785976884. When I told her that I was tired of scam and that it was not professional enough to be believable, she told me how rude I was and it ended up with her threatening me, saying she had my phone number and would track me down and I would be sorry. Then she told me she was handing me over to her lawyer for assulting her! Please, this is beyond a joke, who can these fraudsters be reported to? I do not appreciate being threatened - especially when you think about the type of person who is doing this scam, I would not put it passed them to track somebody down - like she threatened to do to me, on more than one occasion. Who do we report them to? This is serious.

  • gail13 24 Oct 2013, 09:18 AM

  • sifiso 3 Jul 2013, 02:25 PM

    Latetly it seems like i am getting such smses every month. I finally decided to call this lady called Mrs M.Joy on:0791765113 who refused to give any info regarding herself or Global Mobile. She was interested in my person details which i refused to give. She then told me i can come to Cape Town address 800120 Plein street in their offices to verify if she was for real. If the was a company that gave out so much money to people surely they could afford to hire intellegent sounding people.

  • Liza5 3 Jul 2013, 11:01 AM

  • Dedre 2 Jul 2013, 09:24 AM

    So glad I decided to first google what Global Mobile Promo is about, as I also received the sms! I phoned them from another number, and Sarah Ndaba insisted on my details before they would tell me what this is about - as I had no idea because I also did not enter any competition whatsoever! I was persistent in asking to first tell me what this is about, but they could not provide an explanation, the lady handed to phone to another guy, but he also could not put my mind at rest! So I got suspicious! Anyways - who would give you R175000 these days for doing nothing! I told them I think it is a SCAM! To who can we report this??

  • Sheryllize 28 Jun 2013, 11:39 AM

    I jsut received the same message, called Mbali as requested...now you can't get hold of her!

  • verodique 27 Jun 2013, 08:42 AM

    I did just rec the same message tht every1 did get but they think we stupid first we must give money 2 rec money its then your money that you did won why must you give money 2 rec your money or why don't they just take that amount that they want from the 175 000 they stupid people 2 try and think they can catch us in they scam cause I didn't play any competitions 2 won money

  • Lizeka 25 Jun 2013, 09:28 AM

    "Congratulations!! Your mobile number won R175,000 in 2013 global mobile promotions, Ref.no: 119NKP, to claim your prize contact Mrs Lindiwe on: 0787759133". I gather from the comments above, none of you have actually seen this money, so which makes me to conclude that indeed this is a scam. These people are trying to rob us of the little we have. To pay to get your prize is just wrong in so many levels. How they get our cell phone numbers is beyond me. Isn't there a way to stop these people from doing this?

  • Lekrisha 24 Jun 2013, 10:31 AM

    I rec exactly same email as above from Mbali Buthelezi. I called her and she says it is authenic. I smell a rat.

  • sandy19 21 Jun 2013, 11:47 AM

Ref No.119NKP to claim your price contact Mrs. M Lindiwe on 0787759133 My wife blocked her number and phoned and told them she knows this is a scam. Mrs Lindiwe kept on talking and said there's 2 ways to claim, bank transfer or delivery. Then you must sms your name, ID and address!!!She was irritated and said when we are ready to claim we can sms.SCAM with capital letters!!

  • celeste bosman 7 Jun 2013, 12:24 PM

    Referring to the above comments, did you actually get the money after you paid a big amount for insurance?
