Coca Cola Scam

This is the sms I received: "Congratulations!! Your cell no has Won R145,000 in the COCA-COLA YEARLY PROMOTION, Ref No: SA011. Contact Mr Lawrence on: 0783444191 for your prize."
I did not respond because I assumed it was a scam.

    I gt this sms on the 14th of january “CONGRATULATION,Your cell no won R350,000 on Coca Cola Yearly promotion,contact Mr.Jerry Van on 0714455656 for payment pin no: C12UK.” I called the guy nd asked if this was a scam or what then he asked how old I was.I told him I'm 18 then he said I should call him after 2 minuets then he'll tell me where I can get the money. After 2 mins I called again and he said I need to buy R130 mtn airtime and then send it to him. I told him I don't have R130 so he said R90 will be fine sO I told him again I don't have money and so he got angry and said “OK! Bye then”. I couldn't hold myself so I laughed, he must have got annoyed cause he dropped the phone. Then I sent him an SMS saying “I pray God helps you, I really needed that money though”. He just called me again.....about an hour agO saying I should call him first thing tomorrow so that he can tell me where to get the money. I then went online to check this whole thing and now I see its a scam. I'm kind of scared coz thz ppl have my number.

    I too have received this sms and did phone Mr Lawrence. All the above information sane as mine. Realised it was a scam and came online to verify. How do we stop this invasion on our privacy?

    Received this message today, except Mr Lawrence's tel no is 073 236 1954. I phoned him from my work phone and he seemed upset saying I am suppose to phone him from my cell phone. Luckily I checked google before phoning again.

    I also received an sms on the 30th of August 2011, saying that my cell no has won R145 000 in the COCA-COLA YEARLY PROMOTION, Ref nr.SA011. Contact Mr Lawrence on: 0783444191 for your prize. When I phoned him he told me to quote my reff nr. after I did he said to phone him back in 5 min. I phoned him again. He told me I have won and need my bank details to deposit the money into my account. I had a suspition it was a scam, so I told him, I am in the process of changing my bank, so I will contact him in 3 days time with my new bank details. He then said if I go to a Pick 'n Pay, Shoprite or Spar I should phone him again then he will tell me what to do,so that he can transfer the money to me. (What a cheek) I was weary and contact Coca-Cola.They told me it was a scam and the police is trying to catch him. I then phoned Mr. Lawrence again. Told him I just spoke to Coca-Cola, it's a scam, and said a few words to him, that I can not repeat. He just said O. and I put the phone down. I can not believe these people. Are there realy people that will give their bankdetails to such person?
