SMS claiming I've won money

I received an SMS stating I've won R250 000 in the Omo promotion and telling me to call the Omo helpline on 061 4055971.  Having received this message numerous times in varying forms, I know it's a scam and didn't respond.
When I Googled this number, I got to this Report a Crime site where others have claimed that they received an sms stating they've won R250 000 in the RICA promotion, with the same number.
Surely, with RICA, the police can trace these people and arrest them???????
