    I also received the sms today from the number 0737982176 saying that I've won R250 000 in the Rica Promotions Competition.The guy that I spoke to gave me two names,Paul and Gary as he thought I didn't hear him the first time.Being the sceptic that I am,i phoned the Rica Head Office and its all just a scam.How do these people get hold of your number and not get caught out.Its all just so sad

Saying I had won R350 000, I lost the details because I couldn't save the message... I got a reference number and a number to call! I really thought Rica has a yearly promotion, does it definitely not at all?
