Received an sms from 079-825-8131 from a "Mrs Phelisa" saying I had won R1.2m in a GMA Bonanza draw. I contacted her and she confirmed my reference number as a winning number. she said i could collect the winnings in cash at a head office in the UK or go to an office in cape town. Or i could have the funds deposited. I told her to deposit the funds. she said i must sms or fax my banking details, id number, cell number and winning reference number and then call her back to make sure she received it.
I didn't pursue it anymore as I knew it was a scam but others may not. There is a number of reports on the internet for the same scam but with a different number and a different name.
