RICA Competition Winner

Received an sms from Mrs Mdontswa 0791765113 "Congratulations you have won R 250 000 in 2013 Rica mobile promotion Ref no: 117KPP" I know this is fraud because the only company I gave my mobile number to was when I bought a new sim card from Vodacom - Sanlam Centre Parow Cape Town the day I arrived back in Cape Town  on the 29 Aug 13 after 4 years abroad. I hope you catch these fraudsters. I cannot figure out how they got my number from RICA.

  • Bernice4 17 Feb 2014, 10:19 AM

    please, have also just received this sms. I phoned the number and seems like a " computer" voice - I think they're trying to disguise their voice. remember, when something seems to good to be true, it probably is! I know we all need money - the scamsters do too! - and there will be someone desperate enough to listen to their instructions. Don't be fooled please!
