Today 19/11/2013 I received the following sms and for some reason I saw straight away that this was a "Scam". Wish at least those that receive these sort of sms's think carefully before phoning the numbers that they give you to phone because just one dial and as they answer the call your line is automatically interceded. This was the sms I received. Please becareful and stay alert. Everyone is so desperate for a break through financially that in the end you might regret your mistake. "Great Prize!!You have won R250,000 from OMO (REF NUMBER:6005) contact claims department on 0721463940 for your claim,visit www.omo1wash.co.za"

My 89 jarige moeder is 'n sms gestuur op 3 Februarie 2014 dat sy R195000 gewen het in 'n OMO kompetisie (VERW nr OM22SA.) Webwerf www.omo1was.co.za wat vermeld word, bestaan nie. Mnr "Dube" by 0784856682 se hy bel van "central Pretoria" (OMO customer care!!). Weier om die straatnaam en adres te vermeld. Voor OMO nie van hierdie bedrieers ontslae raak nie, koop ons nie weer OMO nie!

This OMO scam made me laugh. How can you win a competition when never even entered it or use the product... LOL. They asked me check or bank account. I chose check. Then they ask you to sms your full name and residential address and the province. LOL. They are still waiting for it. Come on guys get a better scam.

Just by leaving a comment here you are opening yourself up for the scam! Now they have your cellphone number, your name and your e-mail address. Most people do cellphone banking. Remember: you are on the website the sms you received has referred you to! How do you know this is a genuine website?
