    I have received the same sms " Congratulations!! Your Cell Phone has won 960.000.in FIFA/2010 World Cup Promotion with REF JJ909 Call 0735201737 to activate and Claim Prize." This was on the 10/01/2011 so I called the number to invesgated knowing that it was a SCAM. The guy on the other side of the phone gave me a list of instructions 1) I must sms him my full name, ID number and banking details. I must then go a buy a pre paid voucher of R275 rand and call him back with the reference on the voucher and then he will give me further insturctions to activate the referenve number.... That where I stoped as with the information he was requesting he could get a lot of information not only through banks but your cell phone as well... Please be aware that this is still taking place even although FIFA 2010 is long gone and over with.

    I received a similar sms stating I've won R125 000.I was given a reference number as well as a cell number to call to claim the prize. Upon contacting the number I was told that before I could claim I had to purchase R180 airtime. I spoke to a scam artist named George 0835747130 /0761855531

    Sms received from 0786094987 you have won Gaint computers promo awards. When phoning the number he tells you to phone back needs to comfirm your cell number. The number you call is not the same as the sms number.
