Rica promotion scam

I received an sms that stated "CONGRATULATIONS!!! YOU'RE AMONG THE LUCKY WINN'ERS IN THE "RICA" REGISTRATION. YOU'VE WON R150,000.00. REF: NUMBER A133RAS. CONTACT: CLAIM CENTRE ON 0735896232." A lady with the so called name Amanda Smit said i should send airtime to her number. She later gave me a number of a man named Williams. The bank details where as follows: NAME: N.NGENJU A/C NO 9274058656 ABSA BANK . This is a very serious matter as they are stealing peoples money and have access to our information. I knew this was a scam and therefore did not lose anything. These people need to be stopped!

    I recieved an sms saying the exact same thing just different names and number. Mr David Bruce, numbers 0725203156 or 0218255165 or 0218738623. The area codes don't even match when trying to find them via 0123 or internet shows western cape but not a area for (873), They are redirecting a land line number. These people MUST be STOPPED. What are the people doing about this NOTHING, seeing from the site there are posts from 2011, and its already 2013 and they are still continuing to send these messages. Thank you Hope this helps some one out there.
