I received a sms on the 28th of June 2011 at approximately 22:30, from the number 072 127 9770, as follows:“Congratulations. Your no. was among the lucky winners on the Nokia Yearly Promo held in UK. You won R125,000.00. Ticket no. SA/NK 291. Call your agent Mrs Susan Patrick from 8am to 6pm on 072 354 4310 for your prize and make sure your ticket no. is activated before transfer.”On phoning the aforementioned Mrs Susan Patrick (who spoke with a discernable Nigerian accent) on the morning of the 29th of June 2011, at approximately 08:20, I was told that I must “activate” my “winning ticket” by buying R275-00 Vodacom airtime and smsing her the pin code for this airtime, along with my name and my bank details, so that my “winnings” cold be transferred into this account. Needless to say I have NOT complied! I can see on this website that any other people have also been victimised – DON’T GIVE YOUR DETAILS OUT, PEOPLE!!! People like this “Mrs Susan Patrick” must be CHARGED, PROSECUTED & DULY PUNISHED by the law. Report the crime YOU have been victim to, don’t let scum like this get away with it!
