Adidas Promotion

I received an sms from +2773770409 stating that I'd won R250 000 in the Adidas promotion compensating South Africans for successfully hosting the world cup. They sent a ref no and asked that I phone Ben on 0738043697. Although suspicious, I did phone and could hear that this was definately not official.  Surely police should be able to find these guys?  Isn't that what the whole Rica thing is all about?

    I received an sms this morning with the samne story only they are not so generous anymore. They are only offering R95000 now. It was sent from 0798394740 and I was asked to reply to Mrs Ndlovu at 0737839073. I am not going to waste time on this - You can tell by a mile that this is a scam.
