Nokia Yearly Promo

@ 6:05 this morning (20 Jan 2012) i received an sms saying i had won R175000 from a Nokia Yearly Promo and am to call Lerato on 078 841 5430. I called her and she demanded that i send her an sms with my Postal address and my initials. I did and when i called her back she told me to buy her a MTN voucher valued at R120 so she could activate my pin code. That i didn't do because i already sensed that it was a fraud.

    Received an sms from this Anderson Dude 072 630 9337 - I know this is a hoax, but since RICA came out I receive more and more of these sms's and E-mails. Our "protected" Personal data is hanging somewhere where every arse and his family can get it, to try and steal your life!!! I received a phone call the other day NO NUMBER this woman tried to sell me something when I asked her where she got my phone number name etc. She flipped and started babbling, I said to her she's talking crap because I ALWAYS SELECT NOT TO RECEIVE ANY PROMOTIONAL NONSENSE!!! she put the phone down immediately. So Question: Who Is RICA?! WHo is protecting my HUMAN RIGHT?!
