    Be careful ofcalandi financial service. They scammed me R950 for loan approval. They wanted more unfortunately it was too late for me when I realised I was scammed. They say their bank if from london and Uk Metro Bank. The man called Donald is a cruel thieve.

    These are all scams to get money out of you. Check out quatloos.com, the Reserve bank websites for this types of crimes. They will drain your money and they are wreckless. They will forge a Reserve Bank Certificate to get money out of you. TAKE CARE AND DELETE THESE SCAM SMS'S ON YOUR PHONE!

  • JW 4 Jun 2014, 02:51 AM

    I agree with a lot of the things some of the people have said, this is ridiculous, if our numbers are supposed to be protected from all these scammers why are they able to do these things to us I have also received quite a few of these sms's and I am fedup with this. Infact I think this rica business must come to an end especially if we the customers/clients are not properly protected against these scammers. why must we rica our sim cards,I don't think it is necessary, do you? or is it for the scammers to get what they want or what? It is unfair on all of us who have been caught by these people, I just wish the police can catch them and lock them up, I just hope it's not someone who works for rica that's involved with this whole scamming vendetta.

    Recieved the same sms today Stating that I had won a money from rica. And the number I was asked to call was 081 089 7127. But the sms came from 078 588 2343. So I googled 'cash prizes from rica ' and found this... Which makes me wonder, why the hell do we register with rica. Were we not forced to register with rica for security reasons. I mean im sure these numbers are registerd and therefore are traceable. What does rica do for us if they are unable to prevent such. What is rica doing for us?

  • clive7 16 May 2014, 01:18 PM

    I received an sms from a Mr. Jeff Martins today congratulating me for having won R950 000-00 from Rica. His Cell no. is 0735691228.He then requested me to pay R1 200-00 up front as this amount may not be deducted from the cheque I'm supposed to pick up at no. 7 Fairview office Park, Ring Road ,Port Elizabeth People who do these things should be locked up summarily .because this is no joke. Some people are vulnerable and these rogues are taking advantage of that. I wish someone could do something about this .

    I receive same sms from 0825381087. Why can these sms's not be forwarded to a RICA report centre so that RICA can instruct the Cellphone co's to suspend the number and the applicant? WHAT IS THE PURPOSE IF RICA if this goes unattended?

  • Thabisa 3 Dec 2013, 01:12 PM

    I also received an sms from these fraudsters who claim that I that my cell number has been nominated for a Rica promo competition and that I have won R175 000, I then immediately deleted the sms, Rica SA needs to publicize this fraudulent activity on national radio, television and newspapers, they need to spread the word, people need to know about this scam, This means our personal information is not safe, seeing that these fraudsters have our cellphone numbers, question is where do these fraudsters get our cellphone numbers from?

    Hi, Message received from 0727208296: Thanks you for staying with rica your cell no has won R500 000 from rica yearly promo ref no:SA55, for activation & claim call on 0847012519. 6am-6pm. When you contact them they check your ref no. ask then for your banking details, id number and email address and for Vodacom R110 unused airtime where the pin must be sent to them. Funny since I am Cell C. Where after Accounts will send you a fake winning certificate. Looks almost real. Except they send it to you in a pdf document that is editable. Even I could fake it. In the email it states that a Administration fee of R2250 must be paid to the following account number. 0603427476. FNB. This is truly a SCAM!!!!!

    Sorry the email address to the winning certificate was (ricapromo223@yahoo.co.za) and the person i was to originally contact was a Ms Linda on 078 839 1959, but when i phone a nigerian man answered and if i remember correctly i was told that she was at nedbank making payments.

  • Candice24 26 Aug 2013, 10:13 AM

    i also received an sms that i have won 195 000 in rica yearly promotion. when contacting the number on the sms, a nigerian man answered and informed me that i have definately won the prize. he then informed me that i needed to send him my correct spelling of my name to the number that i have just called along with my email address and residential address. i was also asked if i wanted the money by cheque or eft. the next day i received via email a winning certificate from rica, sign by a Mr Van Der Merwe, and instruction to contact the paying department for payment procedures. No number has been supplied to contact the paying department. i wanted to contact them just for interest sake and see what they had to say, as the nigerian man i spoke to kept congratulating me on the winnings etc.

  • fenge 25 Aug 2013, 02:55 PM

    i just want to know if RICA and SA Police are aware of these foolish guys who are always sending these stupid messages and if at all they are doing something about it. i also received a message sent by cell phone 0794581131 on 7/08/13 reading "congradulations! your cell phone has been awarded R250,000 from RICA-BLACKBERRY 2013 Promotion, for your claim call mr jonathan on 0833516242. i doubted the sms but then called the guy who sounded like an old man with some missing teeth. he told me that indeed i have won the prize. he asked me if i want my money to be deposited in my bank account or would i prefer a cheque. i told him i dont have an account and that he should send me a cheque. the folowing day he called to update me on my prize and then he mentioned that i should send about R1700 for courier. i then told him that i dont have that kind of money and asked him to deduct the money from the money "i have won" he then dodged and said that he cannot touch the money as it is insured under my name but previously he had asked me my names. i realised that this was a scam and decided to quit talking to him. by grace of God, would these guys will rot in poverty. i'm glad that from the stories iv read they have not managed to rob anybody of their hard earned money. they should find something valuable to do damned scammers. they are disguating

    My SIM "won" 200k today from in the RICA MOBILE PROMOTION. In order to proceed they wanted either my delivery address or banking acount details (having your name, address, mobile number, ID gives them acess to your funds in some cases). When I requested delivery my call was dropped. The RICA Centre's number was 0717634723. Be awake - if it sounds too good to be tru, it usually is.

  • Envor Hassiem 14 Aug 2013, 02:24 PM

    I recieved a SMS from a number 0790201171 that I have won R195000-00 in a Rica Promotion - Ref - N299j, for claim call Mrs J Candy @ 0738337948, I called her, she advise that I send my name/cell/delivery address to the her number, this I did, later I recieved a message that from Mrs Margareth Fisher ( general accountant) to inform me that my cheque will be delivered by UPS and that I must have a amount of R1950-00 available for the insurance cover ready or call Mr Micheal @ 0810577646 for further instructions. I called this Micheal, he confirm that he's with a Company Called Rica Multi Networks, his office is located @ 88 Voortrekker Rd , Bellville.I then Googled the address to see it's actually the Lewis Stores in Parow's address, I asked him about the Company, when I told him this is 'bullshit' he drop the call. I then call Mrs J Candy, she also dropped the call after I enquired about the office, acc to her she is also @ the same address, what amaze me is that they send random sms around, if a person with very little savvy gets caught out then they score big time, the cellphone companies must make sure that the numbers that are using was Rica correctly as I notice that these guys get cards for all Networks.

  • Kyle4 13 Aug 2013, 05:55 PM

    I just received an sms from them as well. The sending number was 27 72 941 6212. I have recently Rica ed my sim so it has to be somebody in the department that handles the numbers that is doing this. Where are the internal auditors in RICA? If more details are required please contact me.

    Thanks for this site. I got the same Rica promotion by SMS. Phoned the guy on a land line number, he spoke with a strong French accent. Decided this is a scam. Found this site and saw that it is a big scam from other users. Thanks for this site it is very help full.

  • Bethuel2 17 Jul 2013, 04:30 PM

    Also received the same sms saying that I have won R175 000 and I called Lerato Mbau on 073 267 6984. She told me to buy RI80.00 MTN Airtym as am using MTN but I did not even bother to call agyn as she is also saying that they will need to deposit this whole amount before the bank close. How possible is that to deposit hard cash stryt into the bank? What is our justice system doing about this exactly? We r now reporting this and it dazn seem to be solving a thing at all. This people r robbing us cos at some point, they r successful and dey shud be exposed 4 who they really r. It seems like goa tshwana
