OMO Competition Scam

I received an SMS from cellphone number: 076-2056531.It contains a message that I won R195000 in an OMO washing powder competition. There is a reference number and a contact person to call, DAVID, at 078-345-4168, to claim the prize.I called the supplied number from another phone upon which this Davis character answered. He sounds like a Nigerian. I asked him several questions to verify this winning and he said in order to claim the prize I must send him my banking or physical address details. I just said I will send it but it sounded fishy from the onset and I don't intend to send him anything.

He hung up, tried calling him several munites later and he'd either hang up on me or the number would be busy.This people must be caught and stopped period.
