    I'm sitting right in front of the computer then I just recieved an sms "Congratulation your mobile no has won R195.000 and a laptop in the RICA Yearly promot. Your Ref no NK22p. Call Mr williams 0733309543 for claim". If you check this sms you'll notice some format error in terms of the sms that would be sent by proffesional person from a well organised company. please those who knows what has to be done, help.
