Received an SMS  from 027794028991saying my cellphone number had won an amount of R250 000. I was supposed to contact a Mrs Clara Moore on 0735029187. I immediately realized it was bound to be a scam but phoned the given number anyway. A female answered in a most uncouth manner and brusquely told me to phone back on Monday as the "office was closed." When I got home I Googled the so-called Promo and saw this site among others. What do these idiots take us for?

    Just received a sms from 0741538122 to advise that my cell number won R850k in the Fifa Free Promo and my winning code is SA9782. Have to wonder if this is the same 'Clara' as I have to contact Clara Voni on 0789529419. Called the number and told her to stop sms'ing people and scamming them - we're not stupid!!!!

    Just received and can't believe I almost fell for it this is absolute rubbish. Some idiots sit around sending people fake sms's. Some one should put a end 2 this. FIFA is a big brand and these fools are giving FIFA a bad name.!!!

    I've received an e-mail to my google address saying that I have won the UK lottery. I know it is a scam, but was curios. I responded and received an e-mail from that claims I have to sign power of attorney and foreign transfer forms to set the process in motion. The e-mail address also belongs to a Ms Kylie Wong from Winman Okri in the UK. SCAM confirmed = the law firm no longer exists!!!

    rec sms from Rou Anderson - general manager of FIFA WORLD PROMO. In a sms he says rhar i won R450 000. Must supply my bank details and then purchase 3x R275 vodacom vouchers and as i give tnose voucher numbers an amount of R450825 will dep into mt bankacc. I know this is a scam, but what if you are so desperate for?money that you think about taking the chance. Becauese me and my husband can use that amount of money very useful. I wish there's somebodu outhere who can give me advice. This is a really desperate woman

  • Douglas Taylor 5 Jul 2011, 08:39 AM

    That's R350K above, of course...

  • Douglas Taylor 5 Jul 2011, 08:38 AM

    Same as the first case above. Contact "Mrs Clara" to claim R350. LOL! Should the police not be notified. It's not really Vodacom's problem if fraudsters are shooting in the dark to any made up number. That's how I think they're doing it - carpet bombing.

  • Martin8 27 Jun 2011, 11:15 AM

    Ek het n sms gekry om kontak te maak met 'n T.Roland om 'n prys wat 1.2mil pond is op te eis.Ek het so gemaak en is verwys na 'n Kylie Wong wat die oor betaling sal behartig.Sy se sy werk vir 'n firma in Engeland met die naam Winman Okri wat ek uit gevind het met navorsing nie meer bestaan nie.Ek het Fifa se hoofkantoor in die buite land gebel en hulle se dat dit 'n scam is ek het al die inligting wat ek het aan hulle gestuur ek hoop hulle vang die mense.

    Also received a similar sms this morning, however the contacy person was Mr Christopher Walker cell 0780503244. Wonder what I'm gonna do with my R450k lol. Also allthese opt out ads are very annoying, we shouls change to an "opt in" approach = less sms charges.
