    Goodness me! let's get the message out there once and for all RICA, Coca Cola, OMO Nokia, Sony etc NONE of these companies and many more I expect NEVER run prize winning competitions via unsolicited SMS, or email and if you ever see one on a website which is not the official site agin this is fake people. Fundamentally it is the cell phone network providers that need to work harder and even closer with the authorities to end this irritating scourge once and for all. I have been in regular contact with various bodies associated with these issues and they claim to be doing everything they can to stop this from happening. Clearly not enough as IMHO this is on the increase.

    Im from Johannesburg and received an sms saying I won R250 000.00 Ref No. OM002SA. Call claim agent at 0722154031. I don't even buy OMO products! I really think something should be done, because there are people you are gullible and those poor people always end up losing way more than what I bargain for!
