RICA SCAM


Fraudelent SMS received from number 0763920298 stating that my cellphone number were selected in RICA 2013 Promo. I apparently have won R950 000.00 plus a HP Laptop. I have to call number 0604242183 (MTN number) for claims and with ref R1CK. Why is nothing being done in SA with regards to these kinds of scams, surely will the Cell Networks be able to provide all relevant info if supoena's by court.

    Also just been notified I've won R930 000. I don't believe Rica was setup to protect us, more to sell our numbers to criminals and insurance sales people!
