    Guys seriously, I know we all wish we could win something from nothing however, This is such an old scam that it is sad to see so many people still falling for this. I received one today and the sender was Vanessa this woman is either delusional or really and idiot as she has been sending me the same message for nearly 3 years. After I sent her my reply she said sorry will not send again?? go figure. Her details are as follows: cell 0820920241 and the sending cell number is 0787835768. I even know there office number based in Cape Town but it is actually a residential address. When confronting them they get abusive but who cares. Am busy with SAPS colleagues and have sent some from her area to make contact with her and her idiotic group. Take care and know you will only win if you enter if not legal then no chance of winning. Be safe, be smart and delete these sorts of sms.

    Hi all, why do they do it? its simple, they are trying to build a database the easy way by cheating you to send details of yourself. the rest of us that are in the business of database building are doing it the hard, legal way.

  • Dee11 13 Mar 2014, 03:49 PM

    I also received this sms on the 12/03/2014 - congradulation's you have won R250.000. in rica yearly promotion your ref.no. 010sa please cont our agent on' 0714082200 to activat yourrica ref.no. and claim. I think since w rica our sim cards before we use them, network providers should either trace the numbers and arrest the scammers or block the numbers. In fact network providers are capable of doing more, just dont know if they actually do something about the matter. I wonder.
