  • jay11 16 Jul 2015, 09:42 AM

    You have been awarded R375,000 from OMO annual award with Ref. no:021SA, contact 0737386264, from 8am-5pm mon-fri to receive your award. How lame is that? I haven't entered the competition.

  • Blane 12 Jul 2015, 11:16 PM

    You know what? The solution to this could be to have an SMS line with the cellular networks working in conjunction with the SAPS. Simple, you forward your scam SMS to your network providers SMS line, they investigate as numbers are RICA'd. They send a case file to the SAPS, lazy ass SAPS go to the address and arrest the culprits. ID/Passport number gets blocked from being able to in future RICA. Asking the SAPS to do it alone is like asking them to bite the hand that feeds them. If you catch my drift. Corruption and bribery is real.

  • Stefan13 10 Jul 2015, 04:50 PM

  • Shaun27 22 Jun 2015, 11:04 PM

    What I don't understand about all of this scamming is why the Police are not arresting them. To the best of my knowledge all cell numbers have to be RICA'd. so it must be as easy as going to the addresses of those individuals and arresting them for at least assisting in fraud and then blocking all numbers registered to that or those individuals. It is really quite simple, can we assume that the government / Police / Officials are involved as it is the only reason why they would not be prepared to undertake anything. What else could be the reason for the total lack of interest and or action.

  • Nikki2 22 Jun 2015, 09:27 AM

    Same here, got R200k win from Omo, also to contact Mrs Anna with the same number above. Seeing as though these sims need to be Rica'd, would the police not be able to trace?

  • adrienne 20 Jun 2015, 01:59 PM

    Today 20 June received 2 sms's saying I have won R200k in the OMO competition, ref 019SA, call Mrs ANNA on 0630344343. I called from a land line (so they wouldn't have my cell number) and a very Nigerian sounding guy immediately wanted the number of the cell phone to which the sms had been sent. When I asked him why he needed my cell number he got quite aggressive and cut the call. Always too good to be true especially when I know I didn't enter any such competition!

  • nicki viljoen 18 Jun 2015, 10:14 AM

    I also got a sms Dear valued costumer you have wonR200,000.00 from Omo washing powder ,Ref/N0:019sa contact Mrs Anna 0630344343 for your prize Ok I need the money please can you rather send me a cheque I dont't give out my banking details

  • TEE PEE 15 Jun 2015, 11:33 PM

  • Annie4 15 Jun 2015, 01:29 PM

    Yep same modus operandi I received an sms in June 2015 telling of my R350.000 win. I phoned the number of "Mrs Thandeka" which was 0810764088 I could sms her my bank details or I could have a cheque!She did not even ask my name first, although she did congratulate me!!!I said "Cheque" please, so I merely had to send my name, physical address, Province and the reference number to receive the cheque.I asked for her location, "The Omo building, in town" she said.I had veen selected on Vodacom she said! Will anything get done in this lawless country? Of course not.

  • Cecilia6 26 May 2015, 10:04 AM

    I received a sms from 0832210985 informing me that I have been awarded R475,000 from OMO 2015 Annual Awards, Ref nr019MPG and I must contact 0719390669 from 8am-5pm mon-sat to receive my award. I phone and the first time the call went over to the mailbox where I was told MTN will let the person know I called and then I called again and spoke to a man. He told me that they can transfer the money to me or send a cheque. I told him to send a cheque whereby he requested I sms him my name, ref nr and address for delivery. I again received a sms but now from 0796556568 informing me to contact Mr George Wilson for banking details as I need to pay the insurance cover of R1,999 and I can contact him on 0218136602 or 0739907149. He now phoned me to request the payment and I told him that I will not pay the money as he is scamming me then he said he hope I know what I'm talking about and cancelled the call. I really hope the people don't believe these scum that is trying to rip them off. I mean if you have really won so much money why will they sms you instead of calling and arranging a handover ceremony and why do you need to pay an insurance on money that you have won. I'm just wondering how do they know you have entered an OMO competition?

He asked me if I will answer and I askehd him, how do I know you work for this company? I told him that I will phone the Omo Company and ask if they are running this promotion. He said I can do so and phone him back. I'm not going to phone him back.

    Received an SMS from this no: 078 627 0319 to contact Michael Lawrence 078 930 5999 stating I have won a large sum of money. He wanted me to sms my Full Name, Bank details and the reference no so they can send me a cheque or do a bank transfer. I asked him if this is a scam to which he denied. I asked him for the physical address of OMO so I can verify he works for them. He gave me an arbitrary address but of course while I was on the line to him I had already searched the web and found it was a scam.

  • chantal8 3 Mar 2015, 08:59 AM

Later he asked wot proof do I want cos he is just doing his job.. he got so pissed at me.. Told me to F Off.

    I Googled this sms "omo washing powder have rewarded you one hundred and ninetyfive thousand rands,call ISAAC on 0813265448 for claims and activation" and got to this sight. There were another one about omo having a comp but u had to buy omo products. I don't buy omo, I get a rash from an ingrediant they use, so I know I couldn't have won anything anyway!

  • Angie6 8 Sep 2014, 10:43 AM

    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.

  • Irma3 8 Sep 2014, 06:52 AM

    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 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!!

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.

    Today I received a SMS to say that I have won R300000 and a Polo Vivo. Again the same nr 0840604237. SCAM!!!

  • Elize17 20 Jun 2014, 03:10 PM

    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?

  • Jacqui3 13 Jun 2014, 12:00 PM

    I got an SMS from 27815574547 saying I won R250000.00 and to call 0610544875 to claim which was answered by a heavily accented person (I can't tell if it was a man or women). I immediately said I'm not comfortable talking to you and I will research the validity of the prize directly with OMO. The message was received at 10h56 13 June 2014

    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.

    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.

Through the RICA system of course(which our goverment implemented to ''PROTECT'' us) 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.

    Same scam. The tragedy is that our police CAN actually trace the location of the mobile number and arrest the people. But of course this hasn't taken place, although this con has been happening - judging by this thread - for at least 9 months. Shame on our law enforcement.

I do think that some trustworthy old lady somewhere definitately got scammed out of her little pension she receives. SICK poeple.........

    Dit is beslis bedrog ek het ook 'n sms ontvang om te se ek het R200 000 van OMO gewen. Moes my bank besonderhede deur sms maar ekhet geweier ek et wel my huis adres maar ek sal beslis rekord van die nommers so as iets gebeur. Ek sal die nommer beslis aan die polisie deur gee en ek gan dit ook onder die aandag van die koerante bring.

  • Jon3 11 Mar 2014, 07:58 PM

    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.

    I also received this OMO winning sms this morning. Have read some of the comments, but not all. What I can't understand: what was the purpose of RICA process of our sim number? Wasn't it for the same purpose of tracking fraud using these cell numbers? If the police have the tools, why are they doing nothing about it?
