I received an sms this morning, sent from a Cell C number, 0834831044: "omo washing powder have rewarded you three hundred thousand rand and a polo vivo please contact clam (sic) line@ 0840604237 for your claim." While this is clearly a scam there are many people who respond in excitement. An example is a woman in a rural village in KZN who borrowed R 1 000.00 and paid this to the scammers on the promise that they would then deposit R 300 000.00 into her bank account.
