    I received this text this morning, knowing that I just bought my SIM two days ago, I decided to research the text because it sounded like a scam, it turned out to be just one. Here is the text "CONGRATS! YOUR NO HAS WON 960,000.00ZAR IN THE FIFA 2014 AWARDS REF NO:BPL0147ZA CALL MARK TREVOR(0833595238) FOR ACTIVATION & CLAIMS" PLEASE GUYS DO RESEARCH ON THINGS THAT EXCITE YOU THE MOST, EVEN PEOPLE CLOSE TO YOU. IF SOMETHING IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, THEN IT'S 99% NOT TRUE.

    They are still at it The FIFAuk/premiere league lottery, reference number, and contact (Danny Aivares.

  • Jaco28 24 Apr 2013, 08:13 AM

    I have received this sms quite a few times, But it is funny to me how they are unable to trace this guy as its sent from a number in SA meaning the sim is rica'd and therefore is registered in someones name.

  • Teboho3 28 Mar 2013, 11:58 AM

    I also received the very same SMS specifying that I won R960 000. 00 with the ref number: JF 102/uk. Call Agent Dr Alex cole: 0719149667. I suspected that i could be a scam just by looking at the name, i know Nigerians like to give themselves these superior Tittles. When I called it was a Nigerian accent trying to disguise. He told me to SMS him my personal details and that I must buy vodacom airtime for R275.00 and call the number 00447012953944 in England for activation of some sort. When I asked for that Fifa promo site to verify if its genuine he immediately got furious and started passing comments like " are u illiterate" People beware!!!! These Nigerians are viruses polluting South Africa. we must stop being ignorant and start taking action because they are slowly taking over. This is NOT XENOPHOBIA, it's a well known FACT. Where ever you look Nigerians are involved with SCAMS, FORGERY, DRUGS, PROSTITUTION etc. Government officials must now take a stand because it affects all of us. Tomorrow it could be you, your child or any one related. "Enough is Enough"

  • Ms Moodley 5 Mar 2013, 01:30 PM

    I received the same 960 000,00ZAR win sms. I emailed back & actually received responses, but when told that I needed to pay a transfer fee as I'm not a UK citizen, I realized it must be a scam. They even sent me an attachment with an attorneys guarantee from the UK that I have won... And the amount changed from Rands to Pounds! How is it FIFA & the other people involved not know that their companies are being used in these scams? And how do we put these people behind bars???

    People should do something about these criminals! We are all desperate for money and once we get that sms we get so happy because that will mean the end of our worries. Come on SAPS! You guys can trace so many cell numbers. Why can't you do anything about these criminals. My question is, where do they get our cell numbers if all the chat sites actually promise confidentiality?

  • Mr. Johanness Mzaba 20 Jul 2012, 01:53 PM
