    I reveived so many of these sms's in the past 2 years and just received one also this morning stating I have won R250,000.00 and my ref num with caaling back details to claim my price, well I never waste my time or money to contact them, there is no such thing that you win sumthing without entering a competition, pls be carefull. Do not ever respond to these or any prize winning money scams, they are out to get us all. Best when you get a sms like that just delete it and be happy that they will not steal your hard erned money :-)
