The Incident

I received an SMS stating:

Congratulations ! Your mobile number has won you R350,000.00. In COCA COLA YEARLY PROMOTION. Check No: CP/231SA. Call Mr Anthony Floyd on 073-835-5148. For claims.

I checked on coke.co.za and this is a scam. How do we get this cell phone number blocked so that other people who received this SMS can't be defrauded.

I received an SMS this morning saying I had won R250 000.00 and I must call Mr. Francess who cant even speak proper English first of all. I challenged him and called him a con artist trying to scam innocent people out of their money. He tried to explain his from Pretoria setting up offices and tried to assure me it is not a scam, he even suggested I call his Head Office in UK, I laughed and told him I work for ABI(which I dont actually, testing him that all) and there is no Head Ofice in the UK. He just put the phone down on me.Mr Francess 0734779861. If you havnt entered a competition you havnt won people!!!

Just got an SMS this morning, says nothing about Mr Lawerene or a ref. no. But has the same sort of "scam" feeling about it. Congratulations, you are a WINNER in the Nino's & Coca cola Summer Together promotion. To redeem your prize, please forward this SMS and your details to 0737866125 now. It was sent from the same cell no. What the hell is Nino's and where do they get my number from? How do we stop these idiots. Surely after nearly 2 years of this scam, Coca Cola could do something? They are a huge, well known, loved and trusted brand! This can't be doing them any good? I'm not saying coke has any blame, but put a warning out there, so that we're aware of these on artists.

This scam has even spread over here in Zimbabwe, I received a text mentioning that I have won a Coca-Cola award of $750 000 and I had the greatest shock of my life because I had not entered in any competition of this kind. The number that text to me is 270000000000. Oh!!!! what a number??? Please stop this before someone gets swindled their dear cash since these people will later request for your bank details then will manipulate banks system and may draw money from your account without your knowledge (that is what is called phishing) So things has become so bad over that side.

My girlfriend, in her excitement on receiving the Coca-Cola SMS yesterday (24 July 2012) gave her bank account number to the lady who answered the phone. A short while later they transferred all her money (about R9000.00) out of her ABSA account into another ABSA account after having duplicated her sim to ,no doubt, receive One Time Pin Codes. Surely if you have not divulged any secret information, the liability lies with the bank and they should just reverse the transaction?. If anyone can shed some info on this, please email me on mymarkym@gmail.com. Thanks in advance. Cheers, Mark.

My sms reads: Your mobile number has been selected as the winner of R150,000 from mobile equity promo. Winning Ticket is E19, contact claim centre @ 0784357896 for more info. The number it was sent from is 0796061301, how is it possible that nothing has been done to this person as this is the same number that was used for the Coca Cola scams last year already????
