Coca Cola competition SMS scam

My child-minder's daughter was sent an sms - telling her she had won R500,000 in a Coca Cola competition. VERY cruel indeed.
The numbers (repeated in different ways - so more people can find them on internet) are:
 +27 81 731 8552 = (+27817318552 - +27 81 7318 552)
072 157 7669 = (0721577669 - 072 1577 669) 
Name - Amanda for the scamster.
Hope these guys are caught and NAILED!

This person even went as far as to email me a winning certificate with a Coca Cola logo on and asking where I want my price to be delivered either via EFT or Cheque delivery. Is this true.

This time around their number is 0218297134 and the enail is can anybody help find these people and put them to justice???

    I received this morning the same type of sms saying i won R450 000 frm Coca Cola held in the UK with a ref no and to contact Mr.Morris on 0733012291. Who falls for this crap,getting annoyed how people can try every possible way to steal from others.

  • lana5 30 Nov 2012, 09:47 AM

    Fraud- i recieved an sms on the 2012/11/26,saying that i won R175,000-00 and a laptop from Coca Cola. the lady's name is Vanessa and the cell number to call is 0834037691 with this is definfetly a scam as Coca cola is not running this competiton. i the that Coke should issue a statement warning the public of this,especially now that it is the festive season.

  • Lidia 23 Nov 2012, 01:27 PM

    I got an sms from 081 235 5692 saying I won a Coca Cola competition. It said that I had won R450 000 and that I should call Mrs Maria on 079 600 5162. I called her and she wanted me to purchase a R275 vodacom airtime voucher and then send her the tilslip number as well as my ID number and banking details. When I wanted to know what Coca Cola's website is so that I can read up on the competition's T&C's she got very aggresive and wanted my details FIRST before she gives me any information. I refused and demanded more information, then she got mad and told me "You're asking me to do something I don't want to do" and hung up the phone. Complete scam!! The lady on the phone sounded like a foreigner.

  • Sephiwe 16 Nov 2012, 09:11 AM
