Rica Yearly Promotion

I received an sms from the number 0741566185 stating the following: CONGRATULATION YOUR CELL NUMBER HAS WON THE SUM OF R250,000 IN THE RICA 2013 YEARLY PROMOTION, YOUR REF NO- SA774RC.CALL CLAIMS CENTRE ON 0825490651. T&C
I called the number from a private number but no one picked up.
This is no doubt a scam & sending out a warning to everyone out there

    I received an sms today stating that I have "won R196 000 in the Rica Yearly Promotion. Ref no: 019nkp Contact the agent Mr Fred on 0788113635 for your prize" I phoned, Mr Fred answered asking me for my location and ref no whereafter he stated that I had to phone him back within 5 minutes. I protested and asked him why I should phone back seeing that he sent me an sms in the first place and has my number! Seriously!! In this day and age do whack criminals really think we are so gullable??!!
