    I was sms'd by these people. They sms'd me from this number,0728912624, requesting me to phone them on 0731598814. I stupidly phoned, and a 'Linda' picked up. She asked me to send the pin code of a R220.00 voucher to validate the pin code provided in my sms. They also wanted my bank details. The irony is that they did not specify which network's airtime was required, meaning tat if you actally send the voucher from a network they do not use, they may actually just throw the voucher away.

  • Susan13 25 Jan 2013, 11:59 AM

Is this a scam or not? I called out of curiosity, she said I should call back, having doubts.....these people ...jeez!!!

  • TJ 11 Jan 2013, 09:25 AM

    I received an sms this morning also stating I had won R 350 000. People should know that if you respond to such messages or call the sender they either hack into your phone or steal your airtime/ take up airtime or all three. Any person who contacts you for a competition you didn't enter probably is a scam artist.

  • James S 10 Jan 2013, 12:48 PM
