Rica Yearly Promotion

Got an sms stating "You have won R350 000 in the Rica Yearly Promotion". Was told to get R275 Vodacom voucher and then send pin and serial number. Did this and was then told that to receive money we had to deposit R1800 into an account. We were contacted by a Mr. Benson via a CT no. and told this was not a scam. Luckily we checked and found this scam on the internet before parting with more money. Mr Theor had exact same ticket no and ref as us. BEWARE.
