I received a text message this morning at 3am reading the following: Congratulations!!! Your mobile number has won R710,000.00 in the FIFA 2012 LOTTO DRAWS, UK Ref no. PX776.  Call SA claims centre on 0718448779 for prize claim. The message was sent from mobile number +27764429308. Can something be done about this?  Sure the no's can be traced (?)  Suggest both no's are getting suspended by the service provider(s).

    I got the same sms 2.20am, 6 March - Your mobile number has won R71 000.00 in the FIFA 2012 LOTTO DRAWS, UK REF NO: PX776. Call: 0718448779 for your prize claim. I phoned, he asked my name, which I gave, I asked if this is true, he said to confirm my cell no and winning number, I did, he said call back in 10 minutes to confirm, I did, he said it is verified, I won and I needed to come in to the offices to arrange the money transfer - 277 Cape Road, Greenacres, Metropolitan Building, 2nd Floor, same floor as ABSA Bank. He had an accent, hard to understand.... I am not sure what to do...?????

  • Mary 18 14 Feb 2012, 10:16 AM

    These people basically steals airtime from others. Got the same sms. Called the Guy (Morgan Reeves), was instructed to buy 4 x R275.00 Vodacom Vouchers. Lucky I called my Husband first before I did anything. Something needs to be done about this scam.
