SMS SENT FROM NUMBER: +27614258915


This is clearly a scam since the victim does not enter any so called promotions. Surely with the RICA thing somebody can trace the details of the criminals cellphone number?

    Received an sms just now saying that "Rica has awarded you R500,000 with Ref no: R08k. Call 0834933048 Mrs Linda or Johnson for claims. (8AM-5PM daily) T&C Apply". I don't know why these people are trying to scam other people when they know everyone is struggling to get by. And they also know that the people are so desperate that they will use their last savings just to get this money. They laugh all the way to the bank and you cry your heart out over debt you've incurred. Shame on them...

  • ceceline 15 Apr 2014, 08:34 AM

    I just received my second sms for the year. I know there is more to come. Last year I received about 8 sms'. My question is, What are the authorities doing about this problem. Their silence in this whole matter is almost as if they are part of it. Why is it not on TV to warn people? Why is it not in the news papers and in magazines. Here is my sms I received a few minutes ago. CONGRATULATIONS! YOUR SIM CARD HAS WON R350,000 IN THE RICA 2014 ALL NETWORK PROMO.REF NO:B499XX FOR ACTIVATION AND CLAIM CALL MR BEN MARK 0737937748 I need u to understand that about 3years I was scammed out of R4000 I am very angry because I came accross this site because I needed some answers. Since then I go onto these sites on a weekly basis and I see how people post their concerns but I never see anyone else post any results. So why is this site here, I assume 'just so we can vent ourselves' something needs to be done!! We need a vigilante!!!

  • Imtiaz 6 Mar 2014, 01:50 PM

    they have your cell number and banking details, i'm assuming this information is obtained from our cellphone service providers, call centers usually buy consumer information for large sums of money. At first it is sold to reputable companies, thereafter those companies sell their consumer data to other companies, somewhere down the line our information gets into the wrong hands. I had a prepaid sim for years and I didn't get any scam sms's whatsoever it was a phone strictly for business,I took out a contract for a personal cellphone and after a few months i started getting these sms's like crazy. I didn't give any company this number nor did i list it on any survey. the only logical explanation that i could come up with was with the service providers themselves. My brother used to own a legit call center.

    I received an SMS this morning stating that I had won R180,000-00 from RICA Promotions My REF no 6601KR contact Mrs Linda Buthelezi on 0738589858 for my claim. Out of curiosity I phoned from my home phone and spoke to Mrs buthelezi. She checked my ref no was correct then asked me if I wanted the money paid into my bank account or have courrired to my address. I informed her that she must courrer the cheque to me. I was then asked if i am sure, as it will be much easier to transfer the money into my account. I told her no, I want the cheque in my hand. She then said that she will inform the finance department and they will get back to me. I then received another SMS stating that my request had been approved and that I must pay the sum of R1800-00 before the courrer service will deliver my cheque..Surely something can be done in trapping these people or it seems to me that the police just do'nt care!!!

    Ek het 'n sms ontvang vanaf 0876620611 - u sel no is gekies in die 2013 Rica Promo - verw MBL074SA R250000. Kontak Johanna Potgieter by 0723659483 wat ek toe gedoen het, ek moes lugtyd koop van R275 en toe weer R830 by Checkers met 'n pin nommer, nou moet ek nogsteeds R3600 betaal vir fooi voordat hulle cheque kan stuur. Johanna antw glad nie haar foon, William dring aan om eers die betaling te doen - ek het voorstel vat R10000 daarvan en doen daarmee wat julle wil en stuur my wengeld. Johanna verseker my haar word is haar eer. Sy was ontstel toe ek vir haar se dat dit weer 'n scam is.

    I have also received a sms that I have won R160000.00 I was requeatd to purchase airtime to activate the ticket no 2200kp and would then have to psy courier fees of R1250.00 for delivery of the cheque. I tried to change from cheque to bank tranafer and was told this was not possible as the cheque had already been issued. Frightening.

    I was also scammed with this Rica award promo. The guy said how can ot be a scam. He will loose his job. The guy's name os Smik Lucas. Then received sms today to say I must pay R1950 to get cheque posted to me. Makes me mad that we are victims with this nonsense.

  • Charmaine 2 12 Nov 2013, 03:54 PM

    I received 3x smses and then decided to call today, all wanted to be called after 5 mins to verify something! Called the 1st one and she never answered her cellphone and the other 2 asked me how I wanted my money? via courier or via EFT I said courier they then asked me to sms my details including the address, I was a very skeptical about it so I goggled it and saw a few people posted there posing with checks and claiming this is not a scam but then that didn't give me any satisfaction I then called the number on that website 021 827 1674 spoke to a guy who was so aggressive and rude when I asked the questions he told me I'm the one who called him and if I want the money I should do as he instructs me to do, pay the courier R1500 before they could deliver the cheque. I asked him why don't they arrange for it out of this money he said if I want this money I will pay that R1500 or forget about the money coz there's nothing he can do. I told him this is a scam and I'm going to report it. so becarful guys people are hungry for money outside here.

    Just received an sms saying " COngratulations! Your Mobile no. won R950,000.00 in our rice end of year award draw. Call Rita Domini on 0845302785 with ref#: RICA 266 and activate" I call from my office landline and the person on the other end had an accent. They asked for my reference number and then asked me to call back in 5 mins once they had checked there system for the reference number. I then said I would not call and asked where are you offices based, the other person then hung-up the phone. I have no doubts that this is a scam.
