Toyota Yaris Promotion Scam


Received a message saying I won a Toyota Yaris. When investigating (as i didn't enter any competition) I found out following:
contacted number 0218366831 (didn't exist)Contacted number: 0765039462 (Johnson answered and told me to sms my details (ID, name, surname, Ref and adr to cell: 0765039462.I asked for a number to confirm and was given: 0218392012. (Clair told me same and said they only at CPT headoffice call center so it wont help me going to my local Toyota branch to confirm. I then called Toyota Rivonia and the receptionist informed me this is a scam.

    scam - i won a yaris the telephone numbers uses are 07814439842 and 0739660688

    Somebody is still running this SCAM now on Imperial Toyota Capegate dealership's address: "YOU HAVE BEEN AWARDED A BRAND NEW TOYOTA YARIS CAR FROM OUR TOYOTA MEGA PROMO IN ALL NETWORKS SELECTION, WITH REF NO. FBPR, FOR CLAIM CONTACT MR DARLINGTON@0739660688" The guy actually pick up on this number, but becomes increasingly unkind when you ask him to for information to verify the promotion. He then supplied your dealership address (Cnr Okavango & De Bron Roads, BRACKENFELL)as point of pickup of the alleged YARIS. I think people like this should be prosecuted and severely penalised for fraud.
