Omo Promo Scam


Received Omo Promo SMS on 8 May at 08h43. I quote: CONGRATULATIONS!YOUR CELL PHONE NUMBER HAS WON YOU R250,000.00 FROM OMO WASHING POWDER PROMO, ref.no(SA014) CALL HELPLINE:0794109751 FOR CLAIM." Originating tel number: +27769347046 I contacted the number to query on the claim on the sms from my land line, and the call was answered with Omo Promo Helpline; "agent" sounded foreign, possibly Ghanaian or Nigerian and answered to "George Smith" when I requested his name. He stated the "COMPUTER"confirmed my cell number had won the prize, and stated that there were two options to receive the prize, 1) to receive the number directly in the bank account, provide account details and name, 2) receive cheque and provide details.I decided to investigate this, and came across this website.
