The scammers are at it again.  I received an SMS from number 081 326 5375 stating that I have won R195000-00 and that I need to call the number 081 767 6658 with pin number NK22 to claim my prize.  WOW, but I am a little cautious so I called and spoke to a man with the name ISAAC,  He has a foreign accent. He confirmed that I had indeed won the money and that there was only 3 lucky numbers left.  If my number was the lucky number, where do the other two come from.  He also told me that they had already paid out the other 7 numbers money because the clients have SMS'd all their details.   He is very persistant and did not give me a chance to finish my sentance.  He also told me that I need to buy R180,00 MTN recharge voucher and SMS the UNUSED pin code and serial number with my full name and address and bank details so that they can register the claim.  Automatically I declined the bank details and asked for a check in the post.  He then carried on to tell me that I have to do it immediately because they are going to the bank to register my account, even though I asked for a check.  I asked a few questions as to where the offices are.  He answered in Cape Town. I also told him that I was not a MTN customer and he changed his tune very quickly to say  I can also buy Vodacom recharge voucher but it is then a R220,00 voucher I had to buy .  I told him I would think about it and  to my utter annoyance, he called me back and demanded that I go and get the vouchers immediately because they were going to the bank and had to do it before it closes.  Can't someone trace these cell phone number and do something about it.  I have seen all the comments posted with regards to this scam. and their are quite a few.
