    Some one must forward this to the new police commissioner or the notorious public protector and let them do their job or call the president to reshuffle again.

  • Username1387 8 Sep 2011, 08:42 AM

    I also received this sms this morning from a number 076 105 7303. I called and was asked to call from my cell number. Once i DID THIS I was congratulated and asked to send my banking details via sms. This is where i got suspisious and reported it straight away. These okes should be caught but unfortunately we live in a country where criminals have more rights than the normal everyday people.

  • Ann16 7 Sep 2011, 11:09 AM

    I received the same SMS at 05h51 this morning. Definitely a scam.

    Well i recieved the same sms that said i have won 750 000, and i was told to buy airtime for 1100, i mean if u won why don't they deduct it from the money u have won? blooddy scams sis. This people should be traced and arrested.

  • Wobbs 6 Sep 2011, 09:19 AM

    Like all the other people I received this SMS what do these clowns get from this? you can forget about anything being done to stop this, look at the new smoking, seat belt, driving whiles using your cell phones laws. They are in place but nothing is ever done about it. Plus when did you last see a traffic cop anyway.....its a joke..

  • Fifadinkadoo 6 Sep 2011, 09:14 AM

    I received the same sms at 07:01am this morning. This really needs attention. What can we do about this?????????

  • danie13 2 Sep 2011, 06:47 PM

    i recieved a message stating that i just won 750.000 and the guy even called me saying i must buy r1100 airtime and send him the serial numba and then the money will be paid in to my account

  • howdyouwinmore 2 Sep 2011, 01:56 AM

    I was very unhappy to learn that whoever initially posted won R900,000. I only won R750,000.

  • bontle 1 Sep 2011, 03:34 PM

    i to got this message in the morning. i was over the moon as first but then wanted to check it out on the internet.thats when i found this site. so much for winning R750 000.

  • Koos3 31 Aug 2011, 10:14 AM

  • Marnell 29 Aug 2011, 12:55 PM

  • lopang 29 Aug 2011, 06:50 AM

  • Desi 25 Aug 2011, 11:25 AM

    good day, i received the same sms, what to do about it? no use you put in a complain, but no one does anything about it,

  • milli 20 Aug 2011, 11:32 PM

    I've also received the same sms then decided to google the key words "Fifa yearly promo uk" and I'm just concerned that comments r being left and no one is responding to them.can somebody tell us what this promo is or if its a scam how it works so word can be spread about it...

  • zeli 18 Aug 2011, 07:45 AM

    I received the same sms as the person above with the same ref number! It is ridiculous! I agree that these people should be caught using RICA. What is the point of RICA if the police are not going to make use of it!

  • Username1304 17 Aug 2011, 08:44 AM

    How do these people get away with this? Now the law is to RICA all cell numbers surely the police can follow up (no crime is too small usually leads to bigger crime)? A cell is like a GPS you can pin point exact location. Get rid of these guys - SA should show zero tolerance for all kinds of crime.
