Its our pleasure to notify you that your sim number has won the sum of R 120 000 from our Rica 2012 yearly promotion ref 12482. Contact Ms Mariana on 0736785052 for your claim.

    Yep - just got one myself saying 'Congratulations!!! Your cell numner has won R250,000 in RICA 2014 all network promo. ref no RICA 124 SA.' and 'COntact your agent @ 0769124602 for your claim'. No name on mine. On the very sane presumption that if it looks too good to be true, it probably is, I decided not to give them a call. :)

    Received same message as Hester, to think that some people still get away with this kind of scam, otherwise why would they still send sms's like this. Please people don't even call them. Some of the scams eats your airtime when you call and automatically you donate R10 to R100 to their bank account.
