    I received a sms today from Siphiwe and when I said it is a scam, she hung up the phone. What a waste of time. They will be caught.

    ebrahim that was smart of you... please tell us if u got the money. i got the same yesterday. i called them, the first thing that gave me the chills was that Alex had a Nigerian accent. not saying anything about Nigerians but they got the reputation. i told him i cant load airtime in my phone but insisted i buy the 2 vouchers anyway. i asked him where he got my number and he said head office gave them the lucky four numbers. yeah right head office has got no address. i ask the name of the company and where they are based, company name is Nokia 2010 w/cup promo based in durban. do these guys think we fools or what, at this time of the year w/cup promo!!!??? if it was legit why not give a land line to call? why give people different cell no's, same ticket no. God Help us!!! vultures everywhere!!! but these guys need to be stopped.

    got that same sms today bought the r180 but key it in before phoning them so i got them

    I got exactly the same message. On enquiry I was told that, in order to clai my prize, I must buy 3 MTU airtime vouchers of R180 each and then phone them back with the voucher numbers. Needless to say, once he has the voucher number, he will have lots of airtime and I will have nothing. What do these guys take me for, stupid?

    I just got the same sms. After reading your comments above it seems these people have been at it for a while. I'm just curious as to how they have not been arrested as yet. I thought the purpose of RICA was to eliminate this sort of cellphone fraud and crime by ensuring that cell numbers were traceable?

    I received the exact same sms. But now they using a different cell number: 0710061256/0710061242. Be careful people.

    Yip, I got the very same sms. Congrats! Ur mobile No. won R150 000 in Nokia 2010 worldcup promotion, Ticket number: 8080AP. For claim call ALEX or SIPHIWE on 0785373710. Off/hrs 7am-5pm. So I thought ok lets call these people and spoke to "Alex". He says yeah sure you won but you must buy 2 R180 MTN recharge vouchers, phone them back with the serial numbers/PIN numbers so that they can "activate" the prize. This is such a SCAM! Be careful people don't let them take your hard earned cash.
