R5000 free shares scam

Beware: There is a scam going around saying you won 5000 rand in shares from some JSE affiliated company.

I got two phone calls from +2781 558 0673 and +2781 5328212.

The first was telling me I won 5000 rands in shares. They knew my name, number etc.. They spoke to me in Afrikaans. The second call was to confirm meeting with them. I asked them if they had a website or who they were (MME or some abbreviation was given), they mentioned they are part of the JSE or something. When I told them I dont believe them they told me F*** off and hung up.

This is clearly a scam. I dont know how to report scams officially, but I hope this finds someone who googled this scam and persuades them to not go forth and lose money.
