    JUst received an sms saying I won R900k with Pepsi UK Promo. Phoned from a landline and a guy with an American accent said he would verify my ref. number and get back to. I know this is a scam and that is why I phoned from a landline. You don't win if you don't enter! Do they think we are all STUPID or just them?

    I've just received it as well. "CONGRATULATIONS!!!...900 000 Rands...PEPSI... Ref no. P189. For claims, call the SA claims centre on 078 525 6524.", received from 079 473 5684. I immediately searched "PEPSI YEARLY PROMO UK" upon receiving the sms as this is the countless time I have received these "WINNINGS" sms's. I'm working for a Telecoms company & know of SO MANY of these incidents occured all over... Now what I'd like to see is this "reportacrime" site to update us with where they're cornering these "Fraud thieves". Everybody always just "Says" but "Do" nothing... Now US VICTIMS can only report this as we are doing, PLEASE LET US SEE SOMETHING DONE ABOUT THIS!!! "IF SOMETHING BAD CAN HAPPEN, THEN SOMETHING GOOD CAN ALSO HAPPEN!!!"

  • Matt11 29 Nov 2011, 08:42 AM

    I just received this same SMS, but I think that it was from a different number: 0798236262, and I was told to call 0785250039, the same as stated above. I wish we could get someone to tap the line when we call him so we can trace & catch this slimebucket!!!

  • Jolene4 29 Nov 2011, 05:59 AM

    Just received the same sms so clearly the scam is still in operation! Didn't bother to call as I didn't enter any pepsi compos.

  • Christo10 28 Nov 2011, 07:28 PM

    Received the same sms as Graham from the same contact number. Surely a scam.

  • Graham13 28 Nov 2011, 12:21 PM

    I received an SMS at about 2.30 this morning from 0727773924 Ref P298 and to contact 0737608647. Another scam of course. Why is it these people can not be caught? These numbers should be RICAed. Or, are we missing something. Are the Cell phone companies maybe in with them? Surly something can be done about these conmen.

  • Marleen 28 Nov 2011, 07:06 AM

    Received "CONGRATULATIONS! Your mobile no. has just won R900 000 in the PEPSI YEARLY PROMO UK. Ref no. 298. For claims call the SA claims centre on 0717014582. This is your opportunity to prove to all South Africans why it was necessary to RICA their cellphones! PLEASE expose these individuals? This should also be reported to PEPSI for their knowledge of their defamation.

  • Caron2 25 Nov 2011, 09:42 AM

    Also received the same sms from Yearly Pepsi grant Ref no P 786 and to claim prize at 078 525 0039. This is obviously a scam and did not even bother phoning any of the numbers. Hope this info will help catch the people behind this syndicate before someone's account is emptied! Date 25 November 2011

  • Carolyn 24 Nov 2011, 11:38 AM

  • Eagle 22 Nov 2011, 08:35 AM

    Have also received the same message. ALL THESE SO CLAIM YOU WON STUFF IS BULL#$%@. I phoned from a land line and the person immediately saw that it was not my cell phone and he got angry about it. The person even cursed when I said that you are a scheming, con artist and hung up. Please we need to catch these buggers and send them to jail. SAPS ,or even RICA, get them.

  • Craig6 21 Nov 2011, 09:41 AM

    I just received a similar sms for a 'PEPSI YEARLY PROMO,UK' from 0721237118 to reply to 0837360511. At 9:24AM. How can we catch them?

  • Willem4 19 Nov 2011, 09:46 AM

    This a fraudulant setup to take airtime vouchers and / or to get access to your bank account to steal your money. You receive a SMS stating that you have won R850 000,00 in a Pepsi London YEARLY Grant UK, Ref no. P786 When I phoned the number, 0785250039 (SA claims centre), a person with the name of Mike Maxell told me to buy 2 X R275.00 Vodacom prepaid airtime vouchers. You must then phone him back and supply him with the pin numbers on the vouchers. The PEPSI company in the UK, will then transfer the money into your local bank account, the next day. I believe that this is a fraud scam and need urgent attention / investigation to catch the thieves immediately.
