sms fraud

i opened my facebook account then i found the capitec timeline asking how long have we been with capitec and then i commented.then they sent me an inbox  saying they are giving away airtime to all capitec clients but there are terms and conditions and they said type the cell numbers and date of birth ofwhich i stupidly did......within 3 minutes of doing so someone called and asked how much airtime do i use in the month and i told them R30,and asked for 3 numbers i frequently call and i gave them to her then she said i do not qualify to win then i said okay and she hung up of which she already asked me my province and surbub,in a few seconds i received a sms telling me a case has been opened against me at the SAPS and if i want to query i must call one const.Zwane the number that sent the sms is0719423825 and gave me 0603393742 then i called him to say it must be some kind of mistake and ask what was the charge and he told me it was a murder charge and said in order to put  things right and recorrect the number  i have to answer some questions and then he asked me the same questions the first one did and after answering he hung up and said he will few minutes i got an sms from mtn saying omeone has done a sim swap for my number and if its not me i should immediately caalthe call centre.and then i realised that its all a scam and they fish people's information by impersonating cops..

    I got sms from same number with same message, It's good to know it's a scam and not a real case.
