    Hi. I received exactly the same sms as Bessie and tweety! What can you do to stop these people? It isnt right.

  • Roxy3 16 Mar 2012, 09:19 AM

    I also received the sms about an hour ago for the same promo saying ESSON OIL PROMOTION:Congratulations!!!your sim has won R250 000 in RICCA 2011/2012 Award with ref NO EP301 Please call JOE ON 0788635793 for activation & Claim. Sens from +27799030816. Do they realy think people are going to fall for that????Then when you call them they tell you that you must give your bank accountanafter giving your banking details they tell you that you first must buy a R110 airtime,but not using it,because its for the activation,after giving them the R110 airtime the tell you again thta you must first deposit R1560-00 into their account for annual fees.Then you will never hear from them again,I also almost felt for that in December 2011,I went and bought the airtime,gave it to them,gave my banking details,after a few days I tried to load the R110 airtime,-the voucher number has been used,I called them regarding the "winning" money,it was just excuses after the other.So,I had to close my cuurent bank account preventing them from taking the asking anaul fees,and opened a new one from a different bank.So people,be carefull for such scams,first go and google it before calling such scam/number and giving out any information;-) Be wise out there
