  • christine dirker 16 Sep 2011, 12:39 PM

    First I received an sms that I won R450000 from executive powerball promotions. Payment was suppose to be made by a bank in the UK, I had to call Mr Jake 0722305022. Obviously a scam as when I asked for the bankdetails to pay the so called "stampduty" it was an ABSA acc belonging to a person not a company. This morning another sms, I have won R350000 in the Coca Cola free promotion, I then insisted that if it is not a scam I want the money pd immediately with no cost to me and obviously they didn't respond and all of a sudden none are answering their phones.

  • Bernard2 13 Sep 2011, 09:56 AM

    My story is similar to those above, i.e. Nokia promotion, blah, blah, R250 000 etc. The number to contact is: 0813742597. what I want to know is why can't these numbers be traced through RICA registration and these phones made immobile?

  • Ione 8 Sep 2011, 10:29 AM

    Received sms: " Your mobile no has won you R150000 in Tobacco company promo held in uk 2011. Call Yvonne on 0735513882 for your claim @ activate with your ticket no

  • Krishan2 5 Aug 2011, 10:28 AM

    I rec'd an SMS, stating ther following info: "Congrstulations! You have just won R165,000 from NOKIA YEARLY PROMOTION, Ticket No. 8107. To claim your money, please contact Mrs Lebo Khumalo now on 0765018700. So i phoned the number & a lady answered, sounding all confused & told her a piece of my mind- that i was from the SAPS & that this call was recorded & that she must stop sending these hoax sms's. it also hapened to one of my colleagues. she just said, that i am not serious & put the phone down on me. i suggest that number given, should be at least traced, so the percon can be arrested & the number must be blocked off.

  • Edmund Schoeman 9 Jun 2011, 10:47 AM

    Hi Just received same message as all the others with ref SAF066/2011 call Mr Clintin (can't even spell Clinton) on 073 537 5070 from bulk e-mail messaging company named Caster.com. Luckily for me I'm very aware of such scams and did not bother to respond. I would however like to know when these fraudsters get caught? First time I heard about them was on 94.7 Highveld radio.
