    I have just received a message from cell number 0796379912 stating i have won R250 000.00 in the omo promotion and gave me a referance number om111sa and the agents cell number is 0835184855. I have called the number and the person wanted my personal details. I have asked the person, how he could verify that he is really from omo. He then cut the call. I then realised this is a scam. Be careful as there are many scams out there. Don't give anyone your personal details.

    Also received scam message re OMO for R350 000,00 - I did phone the number from a landline, and they requested bank details etc, of course not likely to hand them out - the person I spoke to was a foreigner not a South African.
