    Received sms this morning from 0823435043 - congratulating me on winning R250000 in cash from RICA I phoned the number 0735492156 Lady asked for my ref (RC10471SA) and told me I had won R450 000. I could have money deposited into my bank account or send them my address and full name and they would post a cheque! Please can these people be traced and arrested - I have previously lost in excess of R300000 by scammers and they need to be stopped -there are a lot of innocent people who are desperate and will listen to these crooks!! and end up losing the little money they have - like I did!!. thank you.

    I've also received a winning sms luckily my sister works for the RICA head office and she verified to me that the sms was fake although she says there are some real winners (sometimes). If they ask you for airtime - it's fake! If you need help contact her: williamsvickyrose@gmail.com -

    Also me I got an sms like that. Same story. I won R 130 000,-. I've put R 110,- to protect my winning number. After that I was asked to put R 1600,- for transfer costs. I asked them to let me pick up my check but that was not possible. I asked them to send me her ID number to see who she was. She send me this number 8608265309080. They also send me some address information: Communication Centre 2nd Floor, Room 209, Tel. 021 8297281. Maybe somebody can find out more details. It is such a rotten thing. I wish they could catch this people somehow somewhere. And I hope we get that promised money as damage refund!
