Nokia Promotion R95 000 won

Received this sms and when contacted via landline...I am advised to load R200 of airtime before I can get the monies but should be sent via sms not email. I kept saying I prefer an email than sms. Mrs Precious said she will call me back.

    The fact that we can't just forward the message on to a number provided by crime-stop or the SAPS proves that either they don't care or they aren't intelligent enough to solve the problem, I wish the police could hire me to investigate all these electronic crimes, I might not yet be qualified enough to be a IT-investigator or whatever they get called, but I'm sure I could do a better job than the apparent absolute nothing that we have right now.

    I also got the sms which made me suspicious and discovered this page. I think mrs lerato and others are corrupt government officials. This stuff started when rica came into effect.

    Forgot to mention: Received sms from 0797315515 but you must call Mrs. Sharon 0729238798 What is the use in anyway, you report crimes but nothing happen.

  • Ria Dicks 24 Mar 2014, 01:01 PM

    Also received the same sms. when you call they say you must phone back in 5 min to confirm if the ticket no. is correct. This is such bull. How many people are there now that reported this matter en how long will it take fraud teams to actually sort this. Rediculous!!!!n

  • Christolene 27 Jan 2014, 10:03 AM

    Ek het vanoggend n sms ontvang dat ek R150 000 gewen het en dat ek Tracy moet bel by 0606984885 en die ticket nommer is NP01P. Dus het die scam steeds nie opgehou nie. Watse snaakse kontaknommer is dit wat verskaf word

  • Jacquie 23 Jan 2014, 08:11 AM

    Pls just ignore the msgs cos it's not like the police r gonna do anything about it cos if they did we were not gonna receive as many as we do. I mean I get one every month for some reaSon. I did a little in investigation myself , and these SMS r sent by Nigerians wat they do is buy numbers. U probably wondering by numbers, for example they have connection at service providers the people working there r the one that give them so u can't blame the service providers. The agent that gives them the numbers gets a certain fee, and that is hw we all get those SMS Wen u do call baq listen clearly to the accent of the person it's a Nigeria nd it's not a woman.its a man now that man has I inserted a device on his phon (non rica) thT makes him sound like a woman. If I fall into the trap u will buy the airtime that they use die personal use and then u will have to activate stuff that will demand cash and so forth SO BE VERY CAREFUl

    I am getting sick and tired of this now. Someone must do something about this. Before RICA was implimented we did not experienced half of what we do now. People are even getting our personal information now because of this because our Cell Numbers are being linked to our ID Numbers.

  • Lee-Ann van Tonder 29 Oct 2013, 04:30 PM

    i have also received a sms saying that i have won R95000.00 on nokia promotion and that i must contact mrs. sharon on 060 465 5188, and my ticket number is, 0166p. so when i called she answered the phone with "hello nokia promotions centre how may i help you?" so i asked her to call me back and she never did, so when i try call again she didnt want to answer and then after about a hour i phoned again and she told me that it will be sent via airtime format. but nothing happened, why cant the fraud police actually do something about this, they have this site that says stop crime but what do they do, just let people post their issues and then they dont do anything to help us, they make us rica our numbers for a reason so why cant they actually do something useful and trace the damn call. im sick of this now. wake up south africa. damn!!!

  • Jaci 23 Oct 2013, 08:05 AM

    SMS to say I had won R 95000 on the Nokia promo. Mrs Precious was the contact. The SMS came from cell no 0768447181. The contact no was 0604594996. Why can the fraud police not stop these scams? What is the point of RICA if the police cannot trace these cell numbers?

    I recieved an sms today saying i have won R250 000 in Rica network promotion 2013. I was told to contact agent William for claim. When i contacted him he told me to give him my full name and address. He also asked me if i want the money to be deposited in my bank account or a cheque which will be delivered at my home address. I said i prefered a cheque. He then said i should buy airtime for mtn worthy R180 thus when i became suspicious. I told him i will buy tommorrow but he phoned pressing me to do it today. I told him we will do it tommorrow coz shoprite had already closed. Police please do something
