RICA 2013 Scam

On Monday i received a sms saying "CONGRATULATION YOUR MOBILE NUMBER HAS WON R250,000.00 IN RICA 2013 ALL NETWORKS PROMO, REF NO: RIC624SA. Call Mrs Botha 0798307341 FOR YOUR CLAIM" which I did. when a man answered the phone told me the whole I have won story and I must send my Name, Ref no and postal address as he need to courier me the necessary documentation for my prize, so I sent it. The next morning at 9am I got another sms "Call Mr. Ben at 0218271224 for payment instructions Thank You Regard Management" so when I  phoned he instructed me that I will receive my money as soon as I make a payment of R 1 900.00 for VAT on the amount, I was busy at work so he said he will call later. I received another sms "Recieving Agent L.Mbambisa A/C 9275205519.branch code 8759 Absa.Fax your deposit slip to 0866673362 as proof of payment." He now called again this morning several times asking for payment with the phone number 0211827224. Please if you could trace and stop this man from scamming innocent people out of their money. All these numbers are still in working order as I am still to inform him I have just reported it.
