A friend received an sms saying she'd won R295 000 in an OMO competition. The reference number looked too simplistic. A call placed to the provided number, (021) 827-0835 was answered by a foreign national woman. I enquired about her sounding half-asleep as this was unprofessional, at which she got very argumentative with me! Not a genuine "call-centre" person I'm sure. I promptly hung up the call. I suspect this would've gone on to be a "handling fee must be paid to deposit the monies in your account" scam. BEWARE!

Be VERY careful about what info you give these oxygen thieves! They are devious and will rob you blind in the blink of an eye! Most likely they will require you to pay in a "handling-fee", or request your banking details & pin number... DON'T give out that info, EVER! Please inform us re any developments in your "winnings"

Ignore OMO Promo competition winning ! Its bad news !!!! I received the message on my phone and called the number from another phone and the man answering the phone had a Middle East accent. I pretended to have the wrong number and I asked him to share his name and number - I just knew the SMS could not be true. He put the phone down on me.

I could not believe how may people received the same sms, Ref nr (OM126SA)with claim agent cell 0825169253. I never reply on any message stating that I have won money.To win I must have entered for that competion.I receive 3 or more on a weekly basis, lotteries, Coca Cola etc. I am sure with todays technology these guys could be traced, stopped, prosecuted and deported. After all this is a scam and definately not LEGAL.

Hi i just received a sms now as well stating that i had won R250 000 in the omo competition. i did not call as i have received so many sms like this for all sorts of competitions. the scary part is that there is a Omo competition running as i did enter it about a month ago so even if you do enter competitions you dont even know what to believe anymore. My sms came from the no 0764910187 however they told me to call 0835184855.... the ref no is OM111SA. i really do pray these people get caught and punished before they rob anyone.

I received the same sms today that I have won R295,000.00. Like honestly, Mr Benson (0782914340) is playing a very dangerous game. I never enter competitions. Is this manna from heaven. Beware South Africans.

I received a message on my computer on 16/10/2013,informing me that I was the winner of R 250,000 in an Omo promotion.On 17/10/2013 I received another message,welcoming me as a new member on the Omo Website,where I have registered the previous day.THIS message ALSO stated that I must pay an amount of R 1,950.00 FOR GOVERNMENT FEES,before my winnings will reflect on my account.THIS request was VERY suspicious to me.Why NOT just deduct the amount from my winnings.At THIS stage I decided that THIS was SURELY a scam.An hour later,a guy with a foreign African accent called me on my cell number,and asked me if I was aware that my winning claim has been approved.Fifteen minutes later I called THEIR "call center number" 0218392012,and I received an answer from Telkom that THIS was an invalid number.BE ON YOUR GUARD FOR THE WINNING NUMBER FORMAT OF OMO 126 SA, CLAIMS AGENT CONTACT NUMBER 0825169253 AND LANDLINE NUMBER 0218392012

The SMS was received from 076 507 3600 Scary thing is that I did recently enter an OMO competition.

I've read all the warnings and complains people have experienced about Benson or Omo promotion, I also just got the same message, first it was sounding real but after I went through other people's messages, I realised that this people are playing with our time, money and minds which is a crime, my question is how do they got our numbers, why there is loopholes in RICA, why RICA if the police and our net work can't trace Benson and friends? When we fight for our survival the government said is zenophobia, but when people from Africa come in our country and do fraud the government can't protect us. I'm the victim of this people, I just don't know how do they know that I'm in need of money? If I won R250000 why can't they say I must meet them at Omo's office with a police? There are so many questions without answers, can Zuma put in a commission of scam or can our network protect us that not anyone can access our numbers, If no one is willing to assist us then we must take the law in to our own hands, I'm an old person cannot be disrespected like that, foreigners must learn to respect us or else Benson and friends their days are numbered.

I received an sms from 0818688479, that I had won R450K instant cash. there was a number to call and I spoke to a woman with a West African accent and when I asked her how i had been selected to win, as I am not based in SA, she said it was a random selection. I was very surprised as I had not filled out any promotional information since my last visit to SA. She then asked if I wanted to receive the prize via bank transfer or cheque. I quizzed her that as to the authentcity of the call and how this cheque was going to get to me, merely from me calling a number. She said she did not require any other additional information other than my address as to where I wanted the cheque delivered. This sounded a little fishy. I went on to ask her for her full names, which company she worked for and it all sounded quite dodgy. This is definetly a scam. As I prodded her for more information, she kept repeating if I wanted the prize money via bank transfer or cheque. And as I insisted on more information she cut the call.

This morning had sms to say i had won R300,000 the first thing i did was check the website which came up invalid. I do not understand why they put this piece of information in sms if it is not correct. Said tel 0795403453 no name given. Seems that they use various tel numbers. Of course they wont be registered with Rica, creeps dont obey any laws. I think Rica is also a scam to sell our numbers to whoever.

281 comments from 22 June 2013, today, myself and three others with the same issue, this platform is useful for awareness but unfortunately no action is being taken as this is persisting. For me this sms is not the first and probarbly not the last, I have experienced all that is stated above (nigerian woman sounding like she just woken up etc). SAPS is useless, foreigners think we're stupid, coporates (omo, mtnhave,rica)have strong legal back up, our laws dont have teeth, too much incompitence within government. SAD and pissed!!!

Just received a sms saying that I have won R250K in the OMO promotion. The manufacturers of 'OMO' product should advise the SAPS and chase these cons down and arrest them before they manage to con money out of anyone. The relevant numbers on the sms were 0764677364 and 0736997662. Surely these 'pay as you go' numbers should be Rica'd and these individuals could be traceable.

Same "winner R250 000"sms from 072 336 2304 ref OM161SA Vanessa South African Lady"Xhosa". Upon refusing details, I asked if this is another "scam"? She gave me Mr. Williams at 021 823 6525 to check the bon-afides of the winnings. This "Mr. Williams" sounds like some Foreign(nigerian?) individual, whom you can't understand when he speaks, due to his strange accent and upon adressing him about his credentials, he just cuts the call. I agree another scam and let's stop them.

I didnt call her because I have been a victim once of things like this whereby I had to buy close to R250 of airtime (Virgin) and sent the pin quotes a woman called Zuzan, she said its to activate the payment. She sounded west african. That was last time I heard from her after sending that airtime. Wish they can stop this nonsense.

In these cases, it is nearly impossible to track the person down. With regards to RICA, it's sadly a pointless system - one can buy a Rica-ed sim card for just R10 on a street corner - so there is no real way of tracking them down. Even with regards to the bank accounts - they are often opened with factitious details or sometimes unrelated person would open the account for a fee and simply hand over the ATM card and PIN number to the crooks.

Decide to phone, but not directly from my cell but from land line and showing private number. Phoned the number 021-8236501, spoke to Linda. She checks my reference number and say I have won. If I want the money to be transfer or cheque deliver. I said cheque but then can hear she not happy with my option. I must also sms my details to her at 061-422 6029, email, address, full name and cell number. I phoned OMO to confirm this, they told me that is is a scam and also look now on the website and got to this page. Be careful people this is dangers scam.

When I phoned Grentcha answered and said how would I like my money a bank transfer or cheque and then she says I need to go buy R110 VOdacom Voucher phone her back and give the ref, 5 minutes after that another friend of mine phoned her saying she got the sms, give the wrong cell nr and then she says yes your number has won, she confronted her and guess what.... she put the phone down on her.... THIS IS A SCAM...... watch out

Both yesterday and today (2 & 3 December)I have won R450 000 in an OMO Promo competition. I did enter such a competition via a sticker (and was given a prize) on an OMO product, but from a different cell number from the one on which I won this huge cash amount. This thing is still circulating and I was to call Mrs Sharon on cell No 0730907890 with Ref No SA23OMO, so BE WARNED - simply delete the trash.

I received an sms from 076 537 4720 congratulating me of winning 250,000.00 as well, I called OMO and no such promo is running, was not a call centre agent either, and sounded unprofessional, and suspect was a Nigerian of sort, was told to either send my physical address to the cell number 071 204 7833 for a cheque to be sent to me, or to send my banking details, does this oxygen thief think I was born yesterday... please please do not send your info, either they will rob your home, or steal your money from your bank account, why else would these thieves want these details. Be safe, its December and they trying to make a killing.

It looks like the "OMO" manic is back for 2014, so beware people, the prize money has dropped to R200 000. And the new Criminal is Mr Wilson or Mr Williams.My message didn't stay on my phone, it was rather unusual, when i switched my phone on the message was there and it had ok highlighted at the bottom of the message. I have never seen this before, and when I quickly closed the message, it was not saved anywhere on my phone. Are they (the criminals) using a new technique. I ask myself what happened to the famous RICA system.

Phew! Dreams do come true at times. Sadly, I dreamt of money only to wake up to this sms SCAM: "CONGRATULATIONS!!! YOUR SIM CARD HAS WON YOU R350.000.00 IN THE OMO YEARLY PROMOTION YOUR REF. NO.020SA CONTACT OUR AGENT ON 0788142019 FOR YOUR CLAIM". What a bad dream I tell you! Again, I wonder if in RSA we have the intelligence to track this bunch of loosers since all sim cards are or must be RICA'd! Or do we just have a useless police force with little investigative experience and not knowing what to do to cab such crimes. I have lil confidence in SAPS due to personal experience with the fraudulent case I opened 2 years ago and still nothing has been done to date.

Just received an sms from 078 202 3195 that I have one R295,000 in omo washing powder promo - the gentleman asked me do I want eft or cheque - I said cheque, he asked for my physical address = I gave him a postal . Then I asked him who he is - he is a Mr Collins and he an agent for Omo - He then instructed me to validate my claim to purchase a R274 Vodacom voucher from Pick n Pay - I asked what nationality he is - Nigerian or Chinese - he said Chinese and he is currently operating from Cape Town. BEWARE!!!!!!

I received this sms from 082 485 2724 stating that I have won R350 000.00 form Omo Washing Power Promotion ref and works. Please see the word after the amount. SPELLED incorrectly. Stupid buggers. So when I called to find out more the gentleman introduced himself as James Owen clearly with a foreign language. He asked me would I like my money couriered or paid directly into my bank. Upon requesting it to be couriered he told me I must sms all my contact details to this number from which I received the sms. Any takers who wants R350 000.00 of my winnings from this nice gentleman?

Decided to call number and was asked for my ref no, after giving ref no they asked for my cell, I said they should have it as they sms'd me. When I refused to give number they cut the call. Knew it was a scam from the beginning but felt some type of satisfaction playing their game. These people should be traced caught and prosecuted, they are an insult to the human race, would prefer to deal with Robin Hood at least he had ethics.

Phoned her from the landline phone and gave her my ref no. She then asked me to call back after 2 mins as she had to check my ref on the system. After a while a phoned back. She then wanted to know if I wanted a cheque or if she must deposit it into my account. I said she could post me a cheque. Then she wanted me to sms her my details. I then told her that it was a scam and i'm not interested. I also asked her why is Omo not giving vouchers instead of cash as she said that Omo wants you to buy their product and not Skip or Ariel. Her reply was that cash is better than vouchers. WHAT A JOKE. ITS A PITY SOME PEOPLE STILL FALL FOR THIS NONSENCE My choice of washing powder is Omo and have been using it for years.

I've received an sms yesterday informing me that I have won R250000. I phoned them and alsa sent a sms with just my details no bank details. They sent me a sms now that I have to pay an amount for tax and deliverycharges. When I mentioned to a Mr Larry Williamson that I do not have the money he got aggressive and I immediately knew that it was a scam. I tested them. Both the gentlemen I talked to had a foreign accent. They're not from SA. Such bastards.

Ive just received an sms saying: You have won R295 000 from Omo Washing Promo Ref no OMOSA7. call Mr Petersen on 0611699120 and make sure your reference number is activated. visit www.omo.co.za. I called Mr Petersen and he politely answered "Omo Washing Powder Promotions". When I asked him where the Cape Town office is, since I'd lide to go claim my winnings at the office, he got angry and dropped the phone. My concern: What is OMO doing about this bad publicity? and also, why did we RICA? to get all these scams?

My mother of 65 give her details of full name, postal addres, Cell num,reference num, id num and email. He call back and ask me if I revive a sms from bank sms from 0812556822 and want us to pay first R1,850 which covers the courier delivery charges and insurance coverage charges. So for payment advice, call your agent Mrs Joyce on: 0845433048, please note that your won prize Connot be deducted due to insurance policy place on it thanks Mrs. Susan Anderson. My sister in low's mother get about 2 years ago something similar like that something like your Celphone number and Rica has won you some big sum of money... She get so excited and get a paralytic stroke... From that day she is in bed and can't walk... !

Die definisie van bedrog lees as volg : Bedrog is die wederegtelike opsetlike verdraaing van die waarheid wat daarop gemik is om werklike of potensieele nadeel vir 'n ander mee te bring. Mense wat murg in hulle pype het behoort die aangeleenthede wat voorkom aan die polisie rapporteer en aandring dat die gevalle ondersoek word. Ongelukkig is dit 'n feit dat onvermoe wyd span in die SA Polisiediens en die mense nie hulle werksaamhede ken nie.

Through the RICA system of course(which our goverment implemented to ''PROTECT'' us)...it is clear...our own people and these Naai-gerians and other foreigners are all involved...they all protected by our shitty man-made laws and New World Order policies and by the goverment and its officials...blame the people in power or who was in power...namely...the late 'so called' great Nelson Mandela (who also bare the no.4(666)4...(same no. as the previous and current Catholic(the beast)pope/s)...the ex corrupt president Thabo Numbheki and now 'THE RAPIST' also known as our president Jacob Zuma who brought and allowed those people here in the 1st place...These people must be stopped...if not by us...then by the hand of God...but he wont help us unless we try and help ourselves.

Hi Just got the sms saying that I won R195000 in OMO competition. Had to call Mr David on 078 345 4168, of course they want to deliver a cheque and will somehow ask for my banking details. Can the cops not investigate these guys?

My husband received a message that he won R295000-00 in the Omo competition. I phoned them back on a landline. They put the phone down. If you did not enter a compitition you will not win. My husband did not enter the competition. This is clearly a huge scam!!!!!!

Received same sms just now said I have won R 195000.00 from this number 0603606022. I almost fell for it as I have in the near past entered Omo competition. I realized if I entered, they would now my name, address as well as tel number, so why ask again for it. Usually when you win something in a competition they call you. So thanks this was to confirm its a scam.
