If this was genuine then I would be a multi billionaire from this "promo" alone! I receive a variation on this sms at least three times a week and have done for over a year on both my phone numbers. There is no way to stop these guys because the police force is run by criminals for criminals. ALL you can do is register the number as a spam number so your phone can automatically block it. Last week I got one of these messages at half past one in the morning and now again another one appears. I think I am going to start trying to track these people down myself and sign them up for harassment memberships like insurance salesmen or daily bible verses or whatever.

Received an sms this morning. 'You have been awarded R275000 from OMo annual award with no ---XXX contact 0786113712 from 8am-5pm mon-sat to receive award' If this is a scam then why doesn't Omo follow up on these and blacklist all the numbers these SMSes are originating from . Mine came from 0719355965 including those numbers that must be phoned for claiming award. Reading from one of the comments above it seems some of these people that get phoned know about the scam and might be part of this scam.

I did receive an SMS at 5:30am this morning form 081 711 9534 that states: you have been awarded R275 000 from OMO annual award with no: 011RYP. Contact 078 611 3712 from 8am-5pm mon-sat to receive your award. I did phone the nr and talk to a black lady, she did ask me do I want a sent cheque or bank transfer, and I must sent them my address and cell nr and the ref nr. later at about 12:00 I receive another sms: Attn: Dear Luck winner, this is to inform you that your details is still pending and your winning ref, no/011RYP will be disqualify after 24 hrs, due to Non-activation of your ref no: 011RYP, you are advise to activate your reference immediately to avoid cancellation contact your claim agent on Tel:078 611 3712 for activation. People please be aware because first you have to buy airtime and after that they claim more money. The thing is if you win money or something why do you have to pay money to get your reward.

I received an sms from 0813675659 stating that I won R275,000 from OMO Promotion. Got Ref no and must phone 0786326163, I phoned that number and black lady congratulate me on my winnings BUT I must buy R180 MTN Voucher to activate the Ref No. Stupid me went and bought the MTN Voucher and phone her again. She wanted the recharge pin numbers because that is what will activate your ref no. Stupid me again I gave it to her. Then i received an sms from 0813675659 with my password. So the ref no and password must now activate the money to go into my account. Then I received an sms from 0780109656 to phone Mr Philips at 0787376643 and the money is kept with Insurance Co and I must pay R1999 to release the money for it to be paid into my account. Mr Philips phoned me and I told him that this is an hoax and he never phoned me again. So I lost a R180 MTN Voucher and my pride for being so STUPID!!

I received sms from 0840604237 "Omo has awarded me winning three hundred thousand rand and a polo vivo today. I called the number from the land line and the person on the line said they are in Durban, but I asked where must I collect my car - he said that it will be dispatched from Pretoria or Durban - he asked the money if I would prefer by cheque or in my account I said cheque and he also asked all my details that I needed to sms that I did not do. But he requested that I must phone them once I have sent the details to confirm. He phoned me on my cell about 20 min later to ask when will I send the info and I said I will do it when I have got time, knowing that I have found that it is a scam and he put the phone down. This is unacceptable that brand names gets used that we make use of everyday to get hold of your personal details and he could not confirm when the vehicle will be delivered, but I cannot go and collect at the branch in Cape Town.

Received an sms saying that Great Prize!! Your number has won R475,000 from OMO WASHING POWDER PROMO: winning Ref. no 019RGP,to claim your prize contact Mrs M Grace on 0738994446. I called the number I got hold of the lady who requested me to confirm my cell number of which I did and she told me my ref is 019RGP, I was fully aware that this is the scam, since I have sms the ref number os OMO two weeks back, I decided to listen to the story. She indicated that the money would be in my account and I must therefore sms my account number, name and cell number and did sent the account number which does not have a single cent and which I can cancel at anytime. I did and she even confirmed that she received it. She therefor requested me to call her at 8'Hrs the following the day to activate my ref so that the finance department can deposit money. When I call her at 8 I did get her as I was running out of airtime, she indicated that I must buy R180 airtime and she will tell me how to activate it. I call her using the landline and she never answered the phone. The phone is ringing but no answer anymore. Please be aware guys.

Het 'n SMS ontvang waarin ek R300 000 gewen by Omo, ek moes die nommer 0840604237 skakel en my verwysings nommer gee. Ek het nie een gehad nie en word toe van een voorsien, daarna moes ek my besonderhede stuur met die verwysings nommer. Daarna kry ek 'n telefoon oproep dat ek R1 950 moet inbetaal vir die sogenaamde prokureur. Intussen skakel ek toe Omo hoofkantoor om dit te bevestig, waarop hulle antwoord as ek iets van hulle gewen het sal hulle geen geld van my vrae nie. Die dame skakel my weer en ek se vir haar dat dit 'n "scam" is en dat sy die geld maar eers aan my kan stuur voordat ek enige geld aan hulle sal oor betaal. Sy stuur toe vir my die rekenommer waarin ek die geld moet deponeer M Mabunda rekening nommer 928935821 by Absa. Ek sal graag van Omo wil weet wat hulle hier om doen want hulle naam word deur die modder gesleep?

The message I got this morning reads as follows: "OMO WASHING POWDER HAS REWARDED YOU FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND RANDS FROM OMO.NO. (SA88M) PLEASE CONTACT AGENT: DAVID SMITH ON 0731711194 FOR YOUR CLAIM" The scary part is the fact that there is an Omo promotion or something running here in Rustenburg, I bought Omo washing powder about a week ago and the lady gave me a form to fill out. So I guess these guys watch out for competitions and stuff running and then make these false claims saying you won the prize. My question just is: how did they know my number and that I entered for the competition. Does Omo give out these numbers?

The people who are scamming are using fraud documents to rica their phones and create bank account. Please, no competition will sms you that you have won. Yes it is Nigerians who are scamming us and they get away with it because no one does something about it. You report it to the police, (which we did and a case was opened) but that is as far as it goes.

I received an sms saying I won R250 000 through OMO. I called the number from my work phone and gave them the reference and a fake cell number afterwhich they "verified" the ref num to the cell num and it came back positive which shows its a scam. The number I had to call is 071 204 7833. Please trace it and see who the RICA points to.

Transcript received from Cell No 0795883275 Congratulation. Your cell number has won the sum of R295,000.00 in the OMO DATA PROMOTION. Ref no E019G7SA. Contact Mr. Anthony Smith on 0788451714 This is obviously a scam to defraud gullible people from their hard-earned money. We are aware that SAPS does not have the ability/ competence/ capacity or maybe the will to investigate these cases. However the corporation manufacturing OMO products has their reputation tarnished by these scams, but by turning a blind eye to that not only reflects their ignorance to the fact that it has the capacity to adversely affect their turnover and profitability, but may be seen by other that they do condone these actions in exchange for some free publicity, albeit negative publicity. To the Manufacturers of OMO wake up, your brand name is in the process of being destroyed by unscrupulous. If needs be, appoint a private investigator to bring these persons/ syndicate to book.

I always receive these messages, it is worse I received them from the cellphone that I'm not using and I don't respond to these messages. The only thing that I've done is to fuck them off and tell them they will rot in jail for the rest of their lives, they must never send me those dirty messages again

Got a message from 0722784409 saying I won R350 000 in OMO Washing Powder Promo. Ref: OM147SA and call 0218366795 for claim and activation. Called the number and could bearly understand the guy on the phone. I went off a bit and he tried to convince me its legit. Shortly there after, got another sms saying they stopped the courier sending my cheque (to which address I would not know cause I didn't give them any details), and said I have to pay R950 to DHL the cheque and for the insurance. Contact Richard or Rita on 0218270891 to get the payment details. If I actually phone this number and get the banking details, is there no way of tracing who the account holder is?
