     i recieved an sms stating "congratulations you have won r450,000 and a laptop in the rica yearly promotion.your ref no (nk72) contact number 0735889908. for claim.  i phoned the number and spoke to a nigerian guy,he told me to call back in 5 minutes and when i called back he was kept persisting that i sms my details then he will sms me a follow up on how i will be able to claim my prize,before giving away any details i did a google search to verify whether the claim was legit or not,i then called the guy back asking for proof that this competition is legit,he then got aggressive and hung up on me.please do something about these fraudulant events.

    I am sick and tired that these bastards that are sending sms to numbers telling us that we have won ex amount in the RICA competition - today I got sms from (Claim Centre)to call 0760164339 and state REF-NUNMBER RK77C (note spelling of nunmber)and by the way this sms is coming from a "Card Support Centre line". The guy answered very unprofesionaly and asked banking details or if i wanted a check. I told him this is a scam and he got quite shirty and told me its not a scam. Where do we gro to from here with this scam??????
