    I also received an sms this morning.have won R250 000 with reference no. I had to claim prize from 145 Longstreet Cape Town. These people are ruthless. I had to call 021 8367781. If I had not heard about these scams before, they would let me think it was genuine. what a lot of con artists.

  • Jaco25 12 Jun 2012, 09:05 PM

  • Hein12 14 Mar 2012, 05:48 PM

    I received a sms the day before yesterday saying: CONGRATULATIONS!!! Your mobile number has won you R250,000 in all networks RICA 2011/2012 Award(UK) winning pin number (MVC112T6). Contact (MR ADAM JOHNSON) on (078)1289417 I actually phoned him and he said I must phone back in 10min and when I did he asked for my account number. I asked him where they are and he said 145 Longstreet Cape Town. I told him I also work in Longstreet (which was a lie) and told him I was walking there when he told me to stop because he will send his driver and then he put the phone down and haven't picked up since. Hope these comments can help other people.

  • lynn hattingh 23 Feb 2012, 05:12 PM

    I also recieved an sms this morning 23/02/12 telling me that I have won R125,000. all i have to do is buy R110 air time from Vodacom and send them the PIN no. but better still i have also recieved an sms from Laurence in the past telling me that i had won a 4x4 SUV. I really hope that these people are caught soon

  • Letshego 13 Dec 2011, 08:34 AM

    i received an sms that informed me about the yearly promotion competition of Coca Cola on behalf of the UK that i've won R95 000.00 and they gave me the reference no: C152 and the number to dial is 021 829 7134.When i contacted them they said in order for me to claim the amount i have to buy a Vodacom Airtime Voucher worth R110.00 to redeem my price. Surely, it sounded as a scam to me eventhough they claimed that it is genuine when you call to find out. could somebody do something about this and the perpetrators must be caught and rot in jail.

    Congratulations!!! Your cell no. has won R145000.00 in the Coca Cola Yearly Promotion . Ref No. SA011. Contact Mr Lawrence on 0732361954 for your price. I will not even give them the satisfaction of phoning so that they, the criminals, will realize that i am not stupid as they are. But i will pray that God will touch their wicked hearts and that they will know that their hearts and minds are evil. May God forgive them for the false hopes that they are giving to especially poor people who are struggling with finances.

I always google these things but what about people who do not have the resources and are really desperate for the money? Really now, why did we Rica our sim cards?Was it not for the purpose of preventing these kind of things?Something must be done

  • Edith du Toit 2 Aug 2011, 12:53 PM

    I received a sms 2 days ago from them. Reacted today by email and they emailed me the certificate of proof and a landline. I did phone the landline and they gave me the same address, 145 Long Street, Cape Town twice. They register me and send me a new sms from Mrs Botha, with the answer I need to pay R1,800.00 for insurance and the amount that will be paid to me will be R96,800.00 I did phone the cell number, not available and they phone me back from a private line and again the same address was given to me and again I was told this is no scam. I told the man I need to speak to my husband because R1,800 is a lot of money today. I asked him for the banking details in order to pay the money over, his answer, as soon as you spoke to your husband phone me and I will provide you with the banking details. How can you trust any one today??????

  • Natasha24 22 Jun 2011, 02:25 PM
