Rica Yearly Promo SMS

Received a text message on 26 Sept 2012 at 05:25:Congratulation: You have won R145,000.00 from Rica yearly promo, your Ref No. is 001KP. Call 0722525785 for the activation of your ref no.001KP & claim.
The message was sent from the following number: 0728133141
The guy called himself David Alfred and gave me the following land line number for his offices: 011 075 4893 which just keeps ringing. Hi spoke english with a strong accent that is clearly not South African. I could hear faint noises of children playing in the background.
He said he requires of me to give my bank account details to him to process the payment.
I asked him to give me their website address which he said he would send through via text message and never did. 
Hopefully his tel numbers are Rica'd so he can be traced by authorities and arrested for his actions.

    Op die 01/10/2012 het ek n boodskap gekry dat ek n R195. 000 en n laptop gewen het. Ek moet my IDno. Adres en refno. moet faks. n Klient sal my so gou as moontlik kontak sodra hulle die besonderhede gekry het. Maar niemand het kontak nie. Moet glo n Mnr Walliam kontak nr.0733309543 om prys te claim . Op die 11/10/2012 het ek weer n boodskap gekry R175 000 gewen het nadat ek nog niks van die 1ste boodskap gekry het nie.Moet glo n Eric kontak nr. 0782827782 om prys te claim.Julle weet ons almal kry swaar en as sukkel dinge op n mens pad kom ding n mense nie nugtig nie. Hoekom moet mense dit aan n mens doen. Julle weet ek dink julle is siek man kry help. Of gaan werk vir julle vir geld man dis waarom ons immers op die aarde is om vir ons brood te werk. En ek hoop kan met julle gewete saam leef om ons mense so vir n pop te vat.
