    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.

  • Thomas 5 Dec 2012, 02:10 PM

    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.

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 Thanks in advance. Cheers, Mark.

    Why do we need to RICA? Cell no 0798062923 - Congratulations - Your cellphone no have been awarded R950,000 in our Coca Cola yearly draw. Ticket no 066n. Call Jeff Williams on 0789898694 for your prize. Where do people get our numbers and why can't these people been stopped with these sort of scams? Surely Coca Cola should investigate!!!! Another question! Why Rica if you still received calls from "unknown numbers" or "private numbers". This should also not be allowed. All numbers must be available to you when you received calls.

  • Patricia12 18 Jan 2012, 10:21 AM

    I received a sms today stating that I have won R250,000.00 from Coca-Cola. I should call James 071-043-8754. Ref 2200kp. So obviously I knew it's a scam as I never entered a competition So I gave this guy a call to interrogate him. LOL. Heavy Nigerian accent. He tells me I must not question him as it's Coke's rules. Oh and he wanted to know why I'm calling from a private number. He then also says I must load R220.00 Vodacom airtime as I need to activate the price. So to infuriate him some more, I asked why is it if you've won something that you need to activate it? He got very upset, cos it seems I don't want to claim the prize. I told that I don't intend to....

Telephone numbers to look out for: 072 478 5519 and 078 344 4191. Targeting pensioners - what a fine upstandng way to make a living.....Way to go #$$hole - you're my hero!

    This moron has had my 74 year old mother in a state since this morning at 02h00! she's been traipsing all over town under his instructions! She's a state pensioner that lives on very little - so the temptation of the money is too much for her to ignore. She got the same message, with the same reference and contact numbers: Congratulation!Your cell no has Won R145 000 in the COCA-COLA YEARLY PROMOTION, Ref.No: SA011.

    I also received an sms with ref SA011 to contact 0783444191 Mr Lawrence. I was told to call back and I stupidly did so , the guy asked for my account details and that he would give me an activation code after receiving the details, I told him I preffered to do this face to face and he asked me where I was located, then he said he was based in the Freestate no 114 Nelson Mandela Drive, Bloemfontein. These people are clever and they keep changing their numbers. Someone help us, because some desperate persons can actually fall into this trap.

  • Phindi6 9 Sep 2011, 10:16 AM

The SMS is from 072 040 7390. I called the number from a land line and a black gentleman with an accent of a person from West Africa answered hello. He did not provide a background saying welcome to coca cola or thanks for claiming, just "hello". He also asked about the REf no: from the SMS and my cell number which i provided. He promised to call me after 3 minutes, no call received up to now. The fact that this people answer their calls and their numbers are RICAred, VODACOM and MTN need to trace them and submit to SAPS sothat they are arrested. What was the reason for RICA? This is an opportunity for Telecommunications Copmpanies to show the importance of RICA.

    Received sms today Sept 6 reading 'Congratulation!! Your cell no has Won R145000 in the COCACOLA YEARLY PROMOTION, Ref No: SA011. Contact Mr Lawrence on 0783444191 for your prize' Come on, anyone can tell that your an amateur!

  • Mphihleng 5 Sep 2011, 11:24 AM

    Yah, I also recieved SMS this morning at around 7:35 am, saying I have won R145000.00 from Coca Cola Yearly Promotion, Ref No: SA011, and I must contact Mr Lawrence on 078 344 4191 for my prize. The SMS is from 079 731 8732. I think the Police must do something about this kind of people, and to suprise what is RICA's role in this regards.

  • Sipho26 5 Sep 2011, 09:24 AM

    My boss got an sms stating that he must call 021-8297134 as he has won it from Coca Cola. I then called the number on behalf of my boss and the lady answered and when she answered she said Coca Cola good day. I explain the sms to her and she informed me that Coca Cola UK is thanking South Africans for hosting World Cup and she asked me what the reference number they gave him and I told her and after that I asked her regarding their website address and the lady was very aggresive and she gave me the website and I asked her to continue about what she was telling me and she answered rudely and said she is now waiting for me as I asked for their website address. She continued by stating that my boss needs to call them first and register for Vodacom Airtime of R110 and he must not use that airtime. He must call them (Coca Cola representatives in SA) and they will ask him the following details (serial number of the airtime, my boss's initials and surname, bank details and also cellnumber details) and he must continue not to use this airtime from vodacom and they will transfer all his (my boss's details to Coca Cola in UK and my boss will receive an sms informing him that his monies has been deposited to the bank. This is a very big scam, this people are saying different things to different people and they have no patience if you cornered them with questions. They need to be locked to jail.

  • Talitha2 2 Sep 2011, 11:19 AM

  • Desmond3 30 Aug 2011, 02:39 PM

    gewoonlik steur ek my nie aan kompetisies nie, maar was verbaas om te hoor ek kan R145 000 in my bankrekening he. Gelukkig bel ek nie vreemde nommers met my selfoon nie en dankie vir die klomp waarskuwings.

  • Daan 30 Aug 2011, 01:51 PM

    ek het dieselfde stupid sms gekry. ....Your number has won R250,000. Iets moet gedoen word

  • Riaan29 30 Aug 2011, 09:04 AM

    Got the same from our beloved Mr Lawrence. The number this sms came from is 0797318732 I prefer not even phoning them, I don't know if they can grab any info off my phone while connected with them. As a rule I don't react to these sms's, all of them is a scam!! I still would like to know if, I have not given permission for my number to be distributed, where do they get it, it is against the law to give any info to a 3rd party without my consent.

  • Rob3 28 Aug 2011, 11:43 AM

    Yup, me too. Got my SMS this morning and when I called the guy - much the same story as the above comments. Mr Lawrence sounded middle- eastern and hung up on me when I asked him for the Office number. Coca Cola needs to sort this guy out.

  • Bruce17 25 Aug 2011, 04:18 PM

    Me to. I recieved this sms Congratulation!! Your cell no has Won R145,000 in the COCA-COLA YEARLY PROMOTION, Ref No: SA011. Contact Mr Lawrence on: 0783444191 for your prize. Time: 23/08/2011 04:29:48 When I phone an english chap answered and no coca cola just a hello. You would think that Coca Cola would sort out this problem and stop these guys

  • Julie3 25 Aug 2011, 09:19 AM

    At 05:30 this morning I too received the wonderful '..... you have won R145,000...... sms. I google searched it as well. What a load of trash! I only hope some poor unsuspecting people dont actually go along with this. I have sent an email to Coca-Cola giving them all the information and inviting them to take the matter up, afterall, its their good name that is being abused. I dont know if anything will come of it, but hey it was worth a try.

  • Yolande7 25 Aug 2011, 09:06 AM

    I received the same message today, also to contact Mr. Lawrence on 0783444191. I always first search the internet to see if it is a scam, better safe than sorry.

  • Ntombi11 24 Aug 2011, 08:55 PM

    I thot the essence of RICA was to track fraudulant cell phone activities, it's sad that it is the other way around. This smses where also RICAed, can't the person be tracked. Another wasted exercise in RICA.

  • Gerrie3 23 Aug 2011, 07:06 AM

  • Joy 22 Aug 2011, 10:42 AM

    I've received an sms stating I've won R145 000 and to phone Mr. Lawrence. Oh know at first I was excited thought it is a real thing and on the other side I ask myself did I enter the composition? Then how come? When the guy ask me my banking details is then I become infuriated with him because is a scam.

  • C Leipoldt 14 Aug 2011, 05:15 PM

    I received a similar sms on 10 August stating that I have won R250,000 in the promo. My code nr is N231SA. To claim my cash I had to contact Mrs Carla Moor at 073 502 9187. The sms was sent from 27720839023. When I phoned het the same day, she was a foreigner and said that she will check my code and phone me back - which did did not do. The next day I reminded her by sms, but no response. On 12 August I phoned her and she said I must fax my bank statement and the phone went dead. So I decided to see what is on the net.

    Ek het so pas ook met mnr Lawrence by sel 0720988795 gepraat oor die R145000 wat ek in die COCA COLA YEARLY PROMOTION MET REF NR: SA011, gewen het. Die nr waarna toe ek moes skakel, 0732571711, was die heel tyd nie beskikbaar nie, daaroom het ek op die nr waarvan die sms gestuur is, geskakel en ta het geantwoord. Ek het al so baie sms'e met dieselfde trant as die een gekry in die verlede. Hoe dink die mense wat hierdie goed stuur? Het hulle met onnoselle verstandloses te doen. Wens regtig die SAP wil begin om hierdie mense vas te trek, want waar kry hulle in elk geval ons selnrs? Asb, doen iets daaraan, want ons is nie eers meer met ons eie selnr veilig nie!!!

Someone at coca cola needs to investigate and charge these people.

  • whystillactive 22 Jun 2011, 10:40 AM

    yip all the same but he has increased the winnings to R545,000 surely coca-cola should try protect the brand name and get this number blocked. still same old MR LAWRENCE ON 0786225688 rEF sa011

  • nokhaya 21 Jun 2011, 04:09 PM

    My story is similar to others mentioned. Mr Lawrence, R145,000 prize money, Ref No SA019. Can a virus not be sent to this number to mess up this culprit's phone and hopefully delete all his contacts in the process?

  • Sheree2 18 Jun 2011, 11:00 AM

    Wow, this is pretty crazy! Coca-Cola or rather a certain mr lawrence (well known to some of you) decided to congratulate me at 5 am. The text that these guys send looks so formal and real, but they ran into a snag. I just returned from oversea (where I was since the start of the year) and there was no way in hell I entered any competition in SA. I have no idea how these people got my number! I believe that the responsibility to put an end to this scam also rests partly on Coke's shoulders, seeing as it is there name being used. Also looking at the amount of people that these guys are trying to scam and that they are keeping at it over months now, can only mean that they actually succeeded in getting some people's (who we might never hear about) banking details. They really need to be stopped!

The sms came through at 02:33am! Needless to say I called when I awoke, which was about 07:40am, and this guy sounded like he was fast asleep in his room. He asked me to call him back in 2 minutes to verify my ref no, and when I called back I asked if this was a scam. To which he quickly replied. Thank you for calling Coca-Cola, enjoy the rest of your day, and cut the call. When I called back he asked me to never call him again as he "has the right to disqualify anyone they wish" and cut the call again. How stupid of me not to play along & try to obtain as much info as possible to take it to the police...eish!!!

  • Japie 19 May 2011, 01:40 PM

    Yet another fool who received a sms informing me about R 545 000 won by my cell number.These people are idiots and this is a scam,unfortunately for them, i was informed by a P. I. that they have been allocted and identified. Lekka!

  • happiness 19 May 2011, 10:14 AM

    I got an sms that my cell has won me 545 000 in the coca cola 2011 promotion and I must call mr lawrence. I called the number, at first he didn't answer. The second time he answered but sounded asleep. He asked me for my ref number and said I must call back in two minutes. After two minutes when I called again he just said I had won 545000 and I must give him a bank account number for the money to be deposited. I told him I was not comfortable with giving out my details over the phone, he told me if I want the money I should call him when I'm ready to give out my account number. He then hung up, how rude! Clearly this is a scam seeing that we are also given the same ref number SA011.

    I also received this sms. As part of coca cola promotion, i have won R545 000 and i should call Mr Lawrence on 0786225688 and quote reference SA011. When I phoned he told me to phone from my number and not a private number. When I asked why he simply replied, because I said so and hung up. Not only are they criminals.... THEY ARE STUPID!!!

  • Estelle6 17 May 2011, 08:24 AM

  • anene 9 May 2011, 08:19 AM

    Me too! How can some random idiot half aslaap try sell this bullshit and get away with it! Scams just makes having telecomunications as well as the odd emails so upsetting!

  • Tarryn 9 May 2011, 06:13 AM

    One can't help being excited / curious when u get a msg like this! "Mr Lawrence" is probably already in jail, the guys there are constantly trying to con anyone into somehow giving them money... Its quite disgusting because so many people r already in a financial predicament and these people are quite happy to make the hole ur in a little deeper, thank goodness for sites like this so we are able to find out that it is indeed a scam before even wasting that call! Buggers!!

  • John19 5 May 2011, 08:51 AM

    Got the same sms this morning. Call Mr Lawrence on: 078 622 5688

  • Chantel6 4 May 2011, 04:03 PM

    Received one today from cellnumber 071 1653040. "Congratulations!! Your cell nohas Won you R145,000 in the Coca-Cola promotion 2011 ref no:SA011. Contact Mr. Lawrence on 0786225688 for your cash prize" I see the telephone number has changed for Mr. Lawrence. DO these people actually think we are idiots!! There must be a way we can block this number - i think that it is a pay as go number anyway.

  • Craig Willis 4 May 2011, 07:31 AM

  • Charl8 28 Apr 2011, 09:25 AM

    I also received a sms on the 19th of April 2011 stating that I have won R 145 000.00 in the coco-cola promotion and that I need to call a cell number, like hello how stupid is that. I called but already knew that something wasn't right, and the guy didn't even greet, so I dropped the phone. It really upsets me, please cola-cola company look into this scam as it's so not cool and scary that these people get our cell numbers! :-(

  • Andrew16 22 Apr 2011, 01:12 PM

    we can write as many comment as you wish, but my concern is how are we getting helped before many people get robbed?

  • deon 20 Apr 2011, 10:12 AM

When I told him I'd rather collect the cheque, he gave me an address in Bloemfontein and put the phone down. Coke and MTN Please catch these asshole fraudsters!!

  • Annemarie4 20 Apr 2011, 08:59 AM

  • Jy-v 16 Mar 2011, 09:28 AM

    Received the same shit in the middle of the night. Can't the police investigate this or are they part of it.

  • Marike Pieters 10 Feb 2011, 08:29 AM

    i received the same sms this morning with the same numbers!its a indian guy that answered and the number from which the sms were sent does not even exist.i really want something to be done to this "people".

  • Karen19 9 Feb 2011, 07:59 AM

    I too received an sms yesterday stating I won R75,000. When i get these sms's where i know i never entered i usually google first to see its its a scam. I called the number from a land line and a black gentleman answered hello, no background saying welcome to coca cola or thanks for claiming, just "hello". So i put the phone down. The cell number I was to call was 0723014061, the message was received by 0786429379. I agree how can these type of numbers get blocked, to avoid this kind of thing happening to other people.

  • Desiree 3 Feb 2011, 09:17 AM

    i was absolutely fuming at 1h58 am when i got a similar sms. how stupid do these people think one is? So much for RICA!
