I have received an sms from this number 0823977174 stating that I won R250,000 in an Omo Promotion.My reference number is OM161SA and I should call a Mr Williams to claim my price. Since I wanted to know if this was legitimate I called the number and a woman answered the call clearly foreign due to her african accent. She requested details such as my living address and cellphone number and that I had the choice to choose getting a cheque for my claim. She was well informed in how to be a call centre agent. I could hear from the conversation with her that she read from a script. Since I didn't give her any of my information accept my name and cell number I am praying that she cannot do much with my cell number.
I urge South African's to be aware that this is a possible scam and they should report it.
