Your ref no: SA75 for clain and activat Call FELICIA 0815978077.When i Call Felicia,  she said I must send her a R200.00 telcom prepaid voucher so that she can register the claim.  I do so. On the 10th of Jan 2013 I received a SMS from a Mrs Botha, the general accountaint in regards to the transfer of my fund, but I have to pay R3 480.00 for insurance charges before my winning cash can be send to me. Mrs Botha cel phone number is:  078 823 943.  Then she send me a account number for Z Xaba acc num:  9276202847 Absa.  I do the payment.  Then they send me a Winning certificate and said I have to pay another amount of R10 480.00.  They keep calling me and pushing me to pay that money.  This morning Mrs Botha call me and ask me if I have the money to make a payment so that she can send me an account number.  As I said no I dont have the money,  she was angry and cut the call.  Please I send this for people like me,  that want to believe that all the people are honest.Elsie de Beer
