I did however gave him my bank details ( and after speaking to him and finding out that this is a scam I called my bank and closed my account ) when I asked him I need some ligit information via email he confirmed that they are a ligit compony working with the saps and i dont need to worry. so I demanded a email send and still waiting for same. luckely both calls to him was recorded and have same as evidance.

    I recieved an sms saying my sim number has won a rica online promotion of R350 000 from 0813271748 and to call mrs caroline on 0734025058 to claim the price. I called mrs caroline and gave her my details. after a min i recieved an sms from 0799627452 instructing me to deposit R2450.00 for the release of the cash price and a laptop and to call frank on 0739952885. I called frank and asked him a lot of questions and he became annoyed until he swore at me. I googled rica to find out about this promotion. I discovered that there are also a lot of similar complaints.
