    I had a very long and hard conversation with the scammer . I think sars must investigate this accounts that hard given to would be robbed victims

    I also received a sms today that told me to call Mrs Samantha and well I know its a scam but on the other hand not everything is a scam so I'm going to call and see, maybe just maybe because you never know

    It is actually very bad that your Rica name gets used so openly for fraud And nobody does anything about it! I can understand that the world is full of scammers but it is really bad for a government to be used like this! The number I had to phone was 072 366 2383. DO something,,,,, We do have police , not so?

    Don't these idiots get tired of a scam everybody is aware of? Why don't they just go out and rob a bank?

    Soooo i also received an sms and phoned just now. Said they can pay the money in my bank account if i give them the account number so i said "NO" so she asked for my name, surname, address and province and they will send it to me. Said i can sms all my details to 072 7823840 and i phoned 021 8282337 and i won R250 000.00...

  • Seleb 18 Sep 2013, 01:32 AM

    And I'm not sending anything, it seems like they are phising for info

  • Seleb2 18 Sep 2013, 01:28 AM

    Just got a message. It is in all caps and there is one English mistake in it. I'm also just a bit curious: if proof of residence is required for RICA, why send an SMS to call some agent? Would be sweet if it were real, to pay off my studies, but people with filthy intentions will take advantage of the desperate...
