    I received an sms from 0820637476 on 19 November 2012 stating that i have won R250000 with Rica promotions - i called the lady on the number provided 0722036187(her name is Monica) and she says they based in cape town - i asked her to send me an email verifying the info and she was reluctant - therefore this is definitely a scam as i too was asked to buy R110 vodacome airtime and im with cell c - non of this makes sense and i think these people need to be stopped.

    This is really sick, people taking advantage of other people. I received an sms this morning stating that my mobile number has won the rica promo of an amount of R195000 with ticket no Z166p, for claims I must call judith or Mr Mark to activate. Please be careful, I did not even bother to contact them as I firstly googled this promo and saw it is the scam.
