Rica Competition


Received a sms from a number 0764867195 stating that my number was selected and I have won R450 000 in the Rica competition with a reference SA/UK03. I called the number given on the sms which is 0817710741 and the guy said I should buy R50 airtime and send the  pin code to the above number without loading the airtime, I must send in my address and name and number so a cheque will be posted to me. Just feel sorry for people who actually believe these scamsters and go ahead with what they request.

    I cannot understand why these people are getting away with this fraud. every sim card has to be rica'd so what is stopping the police from finding out who they are.
