Received an sms stating that I had won R250 000.00 with reference number SA112 and to call 0717865567 to claim my prize.  I phoned the number and spoke to a Mr Michael and was told in order to claim my prize I needed to give my banking details or my home address. He gave his company address as 11 Long Street, Cape Town. I DID NOT GIVE ANY INFORMATION.  THIS IS OBVIOUSLY A SCAM.  PLEASE WARN OTHERS.

    I received a sms this morning from number 081 745 9165, saying that my number has won R185 000 in 2013 Nokia global Promo, with ref no. 0029 nkp and to claim i should call Mr. N Joe on 079 348 0881. This has been going on since whe, the first time I get to know about this was December 2011. What's the point of reporting a crime/scam etc. if nothing's been done about it. These people steal from our people not only the rich but the poor as well, I Know about someone who have spend over R10 000 on a loan to pay these fees this people are requesting in order for the payouts, cause of the hope they been giving for a better living. Why cant our protecting agencies do their jobs and protect us. Its insane!!!! Please stop them, there are people with no internet access and who believe's them. May God help us because those who are appointed to do so, is failing us.

    Congrat!! Your cell number won R450, 000 in our 2013 Coca-Cola promo. Your ticket No CC6434CCP.Contact Mrs. Maria on 0796005162 for claim. I called this number and the lady said that I need to sms her my bank details for her to tranfer the money or a cheque could be sent to me from Cape Town, my I'd number and the pin number for R275 Vodacom airtime. She had a foreign accent and it was strange that she answered her phone on a Sunday morning. The sms was sent to me on 18 Jan but I only called on 27 Jan so she insisted I do it today to activate my winnings. I asked if this was a scam and she assured me that it was not but it did not sound legit.
