Cell phone fraud

I received an sms to advise me that I have won R175,000.00 in the Nokia Global Promotion; to contact Grace Botha on 078 575 4511 and my ref no to claim the prize is 0029. I called her and she insisted that I give her my cell no to which I responded "if there is reference no you should be able to pick up the cell number on that" but she just said "for last time give me your cell no" and I told her that if she can't pick it up on her records then it is a scam and, clearly, she picked the wrong person. There must be a way to nail these fraudsters!!
