Please get this people and put them where they belong, if they are foreigner take them back corrupt countries..

  • Terence7 27 Jan 2012, 09:35 AM

    Got the same sms - contact Mr Williams Smith ref no 0029. 0737782372 Then had to phone Sharron Botha - 0738225942. She can't even pronounce "Botha" When I asked about the R1850 delivery charges and then told her I will pick the cheque up from them in Sunnyside personally the phone was put down in my ear. Since then only voice mail. Why can these peeps not be caught, we all have RICA'd our numbers, did we not? No wonder South Africa is in the top ten countries running scams in the world.

  • Geovanni 24 Jan 2012, 09:21 AM

  • Andy 25 Oct 2011, 07:39 PM

    Its 04 Oct 2011 already and Bridget Masina is still operating from number 0786379907. Can the police or the cellphone networks not stop these people, so much for RICA. (Regulation of Interception of Communications and Provision of Communication-Related Information Act ) How come the dont Intercept these hoaxes. Function of RICA according to them: The aim of this section is clearly to ensure that all SIM-cards and phones can be identified and linked to a specific users. If that SIM-card or phone is then used to commit a crime, the person involved can be tracked. Is this not a crime?

  • Ray19 27 Sep 2011, 10:44 PM

    Why did we RICA, if ppl are still managing to get away with SCAMS like this? I also got the same sms as above n could not check if it was genuine or a scam. I bought the airtime of R110 X2 n spoke to ”Bridget Masina” as per her instructions so as to deposit the R 350 000 won. I realised afterwards that aagh it`s a scam. I know you ”scammer” your real name is not ”Bridget Masina” but just take note that what you are doing is very wrong and will backfire one day. You will reap what you sow,you cannot rob innocent ppl, God always favour those who do good n will one day prove to you heartless 'Bridget” that He is the Almighty, The Most High, Jehova Jira, u will never get away with this. God hv mercy on you ”Bridget - The Scammer”

  • Susan K 27 Sep 2011, 12:48 PM

    I also received an sms "Congratulation! ur number was among the lucky winners on Mobile Phone INT'L YEARLY PROMO UK.U won R350,000. Ticket:NK11F:Cal Bridget Masina 0784174465,T&C's apply". I just took a chance and googled this name and there it was all over about this scam. It has been going on from January and still going on to date. What are the police doing, surely they have managed to scam some unfortunate people that is why they are still carrying on.

  • Ben9 26 Sep 2011, 10:22 AM

    I also received this strange SMS ticket no. 044n to claim R750 000 and contacts are Mrs Smith @ 0710996852. First of all, the presentation on the fone was very suspicious and the person could not wait to ask if I needed a cheque payment or EFT. when I chose the cheque, there was no more time for further conversation. SA please do something. I'm worried because these people who have our contacts and with RICA nothing is impossible as they can easily get our ID numbers. Do something Mzansi please......

    I just received the same scam, saying I must contact Mr William Smith on tel: 0798061396 to claim my R150,000 prize from Nokia Global Promotion. He asked if I want payment in a cheque or an EFT to my bank account... When I asked 'William' for validation that this is Nokia, he gave ma a numer to call: 021-8139266. That's when I checked online and found this scam, so never called back!

  • Vinita 6 Jun 2011, 08:22 AM

    I also received the sms and that I must call a Mr William Smith, I actually phoned the guy. It was a nigerian, with a english name and surname. Anyway he wanted me to sms him my address and bank account details, he also gave me a cape town landline number, that I can phone to make sure that its legit. So what is RICA for, its just a waist of our time. In south africa crime pays.

  • willie17 1 Jun 2011, 10:18 AM

    Reported to police and they said that since the sim will be destroyed after you phoned the contact no. there is noting you can do but delete the sms and forget about it.So reporting to the SAPD would be a waste of time.

  • willie17 1 Jun 2011, 09:31 AM

    I also received the same sms this morning 1 June 2011 and phoned nokia customer care.They confirmed it to be a scam and that it have already been reported to the SAPD.But since the persons name and contact details tend to differ from sms to sms it would be a good idea to report each case individually to the South African Police service so thy can stop people from getting scammed out of there money in hope for more.

  • psd 26 May 2011, 08:04 PM

    Just got the same msg saying you won R 175 000 ticket no 6208, please contact Mrs Bridget Masina on 0711649378. The msg came from 078 541 1565. Damn buggers

  • Tarryn4 26 May 2011, 03:39 PM

    I have just received a message today that said NOKIA-You have won R95 000 on 2011 Nokia Yearly Promo held in UK, Your Ref No is 0059.Contact Agent Mr Chris on 0835049411 Look at the spelling... and who calls themselves "Mr Chris" anyway. They would not sms a message like this to you if you had won such a vast amount of money.... Don't do it if it happens to you! Don't phone or sms the number! If it hadn't been for the internet, I probably would have fallen for it (having a Nokia phone and just returning from the UK and all).

    I too received an SMS telling me I had won R150 000 in the Nokia Global Promo. Ticket NO. 0029. Contact William Smith on 0781130993. I have to wonder why these numbers are not being tracked and the culprits brought to book. So much for RICA!

  • SUNITA 28 Apr 2011, 10:17 AM

    I received the same sms saying CONGRATULATION your mobile number have been selected,you are the LUCKY WINNER OF R95-000 in our T MOBILE PHONE PROMOTION FOR 2011. Ticker no is NKZA0166. pls call Nicky to this no 0785552337 to claim your price. Firstly they so stupid coz they grammer is incorrect. I called Nicky the next day and yes i was told to buy R200 telkom prepaid voucher and give her the details. My cheque of R95 000 will be sent to me one hour after i gave her the voucher number. This was so wrong as the lady spoke to me like she was speaking to one of her mate's. I went online and checked her number out. Immediately it came up with crime report. Well she never heard from me again. Becareful people. Dont get fooled by these crazy thieves.

  • maxine2 11 Apr 2011, 03:05 PM

    I was scammed last evening when I received an sms from Amanda Dlamini who gave two cell numbers 0731175033/0786304893 saying my cell number had won me R175.000. i was talking to a friend and she told me it is definitely was a scam. With the new act that came in on the 1st of April I wonder whether we have recourse with Nokia to claim? food for thought. i am going to speak to the powers that be and hold good the claim - we shall see!!

  • Roxy2 11 Apr 2011, 10:32 AM

  • Itu 8 Apr 2011, 03:33 PM

    Received the SMS twice at an ungodly hour of the morning: "Congratulations! Your number has won R175,000. REF:022B on the NOKIA INT'L PROMO.To claium contact Amanda Dlamini on 0731175033 or 0786304893. T&C apply" From 0783612919 Looks like neither the CPA or RICA is worth the paper they are printed on!

  • Marius9 31 Mar 2011, 10:52 AM

    I received an sms from 0733958512 It said Congratulations! Your Number has won R 175.000 REF 022B on the NOKIA INT L PROMO. To claim contact Amanda on 0731175033 or 0786304893 T and C apply. I do agree with an earlier mention comment about the Rica law. I think it's a bull dust way of collecting data for purposes like this where the information gets sold of to the highest bidders. The world could do with no corruption.
