WHY THE HELL IS NOBODY DOING ANYTHING ABOUT THIS??? surely the RICA fraud dept can see all our comments and incidents. WHY IS NOTHING BEING DONE???

  • sabiesun 21 Jan 2014, 10:49 AM

    Just received a new sms - Omo Promo 2014. I have apparently won R350'000. I phoned the cell phone number (just to chat), and no one answered. Phoned the land line (to check), and some guy answered without 'welcoming' me to this supposedly winning promotion. Anyway, the offices are in Stellenbosch (that's what he said), and when I didn't want to give my cell number, he ended the call.

  • Judy2 8 Jan 2014, 12:33 PM

    Cant we get these fools caught already. Got the same SMS telling me my sim card had won R350K, ref No. RIC445UK, to contact 0839922858. Asked who I was speaking to, she told me her name is Asanda - yeah right! I asked for their company name, she said RICA, asked for their physical address, she told me No. 2 Century City, Canal Walk, asked for their landline, she told me 021-836-9491 and asked who their Mktg Dir was, she said Mr. Smith. I mean come on!!! Trouble is, there are gullible people out there, who dont know that for every call centre in the world there is message-on-hold, it doesn't just get answered by someone who sounds like they're standing in their kitchen taking calls. And usually when you've won something, they give you all your details to verify, they don't need you to SMS them your details, and what company issues you a cheque for your prize, I mean please!!!! When there is so much IB in the world nowadayz. This is boring and irritating, these people need to get caught now, we shouldnt still be wasting our time getting pathetic sms'es like these. I only called her because I had nothing better to do for that few minutes and thought it would be interesting to hear what she could come up with, but after a minute I just got bored. If I worked for the police service, idiots like these who think they can make a quick buck would be a target for me for jail-time. ah, so irritated by this sh1t!

  • harry8 2 Jan 2014, 03:04 PM

    Well I was stupid, Got sms to say I won R450 000 but I was required to pay certain fees, which I did, including R3750 t obtain my pin number. Then I got asked to pay R20 000 into one account and another R20 000 into another account for tax fees. THIS I DID NOT DO. I received a cheque payment into my bank account of R450 0OO, but after verification the bank confirmed that this payment was fraudulent so they stopped payment. SACF-Rica Promotions (Cape Town ) a Mr Roberts, APOLOGISED and my prize money was subsequently increased to R550 000. and I now have to got thru the whole process again. I even got a certificate from SACF RICA to authenticate my winnings. It all seemed to be real, BUT........?????? I have now gone to RICA AND THE INTERNATIONAL LOTTERY ORGANISATION IN THE UK.

  • Aaron2 12 Dec 2013, 05:59 PM

    I received an sms that I had 'won' a rica competition and needed to buy R50 airtime before I could phone 'Michelle' back and claim the R250 000!!! Please, people - be careful, this is a SCAM!!

  • Merlin 28 Nov 2013, 10:29 AM

    I received an sms saying I won R450,000.00. When I phoned I spoke to a guy named Alfred. He said he is representing RICA as their agents, what I would like to know is why RICA has not done anything about this scam because their reputation is being tarnished. So Alfred wanted my personal details, when I refused to provide same for him he began to get aggressive. Then when I asked why the address he provided was differrent from RICA's offices he told me if I don't wish to collect my money I should just phone the police. These guys should be caught and charged!!! Something needs to be done.

  • Matilda3 14 Nov 2013, 11:13 AM

    Just got the same SMS Congratulations you have won R250 000.00.Off course an unprofessional Nigerian dude answered the phone asked me if I work, whether I am a professional. With that, its just a scam. the good question is how do they get our numbers? The RICA initiative seems to have opened such doors. This should be well publicised to protect innocent people. I think people behind this are satanic and belong in the pit of hell.

    I am continously receiving smses indicating that I am the winner of R295000 in RICA COMPANY NEW YEAR PROMOTION & A LAPTOP, when I contacted them they requested my home address. Government is passing legislations claiming it protect our personal information (eg POPI: Protection Of Personal Information), but people with foriegn African accent easily access our information that is "proctively guaranteed" by our hard earned democratic SA government. Where is the trust that has been initiated by the so-called SA GOVERNMENT structures??
