    I did give a report earlier on this scam. I have now received another SMS asking me to make payment of R1850 to Mr. Michael Anderson on 0760350094. The SMS came through on number: 0817282026 Surely the Police are able to track these cellphone numbers? OR are we so primitive NOT to be able to track the number when it is called? Our Police force is QUESTIONABLE as far as competence is concerned and that really worries me.

I also had to buy R100 Cell C airtime, yet not load it on my phone, yet give them the number/pin.. which I stuipidly did.. anow they call every hour to say I must deposit R1850 into THEIR account for "insurance and bank charges" in order to release my R120 000 funds... not taking the calls anymore..
