    I received an sms that I won R295 000. I had to ph the no which was 0731129374. I told my counsin this is a scam. Then she said no it comes on Tv. I phoned and gave all my details, address and bank details. Now I'm very worried. Have to go to the bank to change account. Can't any body catch them. Surely something can be done with these people.

    I received the sms that I won R350000 from OMO 2013 PROMO, Reference MO147SA. I called the cell 0797756213 and was answered by awoman who asked for my cell and reference numbers. She told me to drop and call after 5 minutes coz she's checking to verify. Later, I was told to send my details. I did, that's my residential adress, cell number and the ref number. I'm still waiting for her call as promised. I'm not sure what they will do with my particulars. I'm aware that this is a scam.

    Received two SMS's today One from Rica Promotions and one from OMO WASHING POWDER PROMO. Ref No. OMO11UK Call Mrs Portia on 0769790012 for activation and claim. I phoned and a gentleman answered, I asked to speak to Mrs Portia, he told me that she is busy and that he is her PA. I asked what company that is and he said OMO WASHING POWDER. I asked him about the SMS he confirmed that OMO has a promotion and asked for my ref and cell no. (STUPIDLY I GAVE HIM MY CELL NO.) He then said he needs to verify my cell number and ref number and asked me to hold. I did and also noticed that there was no noice in the background - normally when you phone a company, there will always be noice in the background. He then came back to the phone and congratulated me on behalf of the company. He also asked whether I would like the money to be transferred to my account or delivered to my home address. I told him that I first need to check this story out before I commit. He said that it was fine. I then saw this articles on the internet. I phoned him back and told him that I knew this was a scam and that I was going to report him. He just laughed, I also mentioned that I was going to the police station to report him and he put the phone down. When I tried phoning the number given by the RICA PROMO it goes straight to voicemail.
