Worldtel Promotion

Received an sms stating that I won R180000 in the worldtel promotion and that I should phone 0794402636 to claim on ref no WT2PN.  I phoned and was informed that I can travel to Cape Town to pick up the winnings or give my bank details or pay R920 to receive the cheque already printed with the winning amount.  I asked why then can the banks not work together and do an internal bank transfer for me to be able to pick up the so called winnings in my hometown and was informed that it is not procedure and that I could check out their website at if I am still uncertain about the legality of the company.  When I phoned back the phone was off as I wanted to inform them that I am reporting this to the SAP.

    I also received the same SMS today saying that I won R180000 from worldtel promotion and they told me to call 072 880 777,i didn't call them because I always get the SMSes maybe 5 time a year but early last year I did and they told me to buy R110 air time and then I have to pay R2200 so that they will send my cheque,the guy who was answering the phone was a Nigerian guy.
