fifa worldwide promo

I got a sms from 0763905555 saying I won R450 000 with a ref no. 0149GK and to contact 078 914 2694 for my cash prize. Knowing that this was a scam, i called the first number from a land line. He then told me to call from my registered mobile phone. Should have just left it there. Being inquisitive, I did. I phoned the second number, and the same guy answered. A Mr. Adam Smith. At this point, the north african accent came through strong, he did however try to pull off a american one, to no avail. Very unprofessionally he congratulated me saying a team is standing by to make my wire transfer. Yeah right. I asked for another way to get my money to me and he suggested courier, wanted my physical address, and would call me back as soon as I sent it. So there I went, sending a phony address, still waiting to hear from him.
