OMO Washing Powder

I received a SMS from +27606956926 reading: " Great prize! You have awarded with R250 000.00 from (OMO) washing powder promo Ref no:OMP1902 Contact OMO Help Line on 0845099218 for Activation and payment.   
When I received this SMS I knew this was a scam.  I then instructed my daughter to call from her work - she reported that a foreign male picked up the phone saying " OMO Help Line how can I help you?" When she told them that she is going to report them to the Hawks he pretended he did not hear her.  When I tried calling the 0845099218 number 1min later the phone was on voicemail.  My question is this? How can this culprits be traced and what is OMO going to be doing about it as surely their reputation is being tarnished....
