Cellphone SMS RICA yearly promo

RicaSA - Congratulations!! your rica SIM card won you R450,000 in Rica yearly promo 2014. Call 0721567599 for claims with REF/NO/RS04.Mon-Fri,8am-5pm.Sat8am-1Pm
Called and seemed really legit. Was given another number 0767474280 to which i had to send my name, address, ID, Ref No. I did that and was then sent another SMS from +27721825895 and told to contact 0110567049 for the payment cost of transfer. The lady seemed very certain this was not a scam and i was to trust her. Smelt a rat that i had to pay transfer costs before receiving my cheque. went online to investigate and notice someone else was scammed with the same details as mine yesterday. I do hope that in my stupidity giving my information, they cannot access anything further.

    I thought all cell numbers are rica'd, consequently a residential address is given and ID number Etc..so this then means that these scam artists are traceable.. and of course if not then the appropriate cell company can then disable their cell... if not, then just maybe they are in cahoots with the scammers

    I have a sim card I use for internet. I received an email stating I have won R250 000.00 with a ref no. I took a chance and phoned the number 071 196 9705. TThe person told me I won a yearly promotion for RICA. He asked do I want cheque posted or must he pay it in bank. I said he must post. He said I was to pay R2550. I told him I will pay once I have confirmed his number with police. He seemed to get aggressive. I told him that there are a lot of scams. He then put down phone. I searched number and it is from Romania. Can you do something to stop him
