RICA PROMOTION


I've received sms from someone with phone number 081 756 9396, saying I won R 195 000 from "RICA PROMOTION". I called the number and was answered by someone who called himself "ISSAC" and he gave me details about how I should claim. This Issac dude has funny accent from West Africa. I dropped a call while he was giving details.
