I phoned and the secretary answered and same old story wanted bank account. I questioned where they are and I can come fetch the cheque and she said in cape town JBC building opposite the police station.

  • Username4232 3 Apr 2014, 10:53 AM

    Same story as all the others - R400000 for me! They asked me to contact my agent on 083872428, and the number I got the message from is 0762959660. I agree, these numbers should be traceable if everybody has to RICA these days. Cell phone companies are so sickeningly stringent about it that you almost need to bring your kitchen sink with you to register - it's unacceptable that others might be getting away with it or are untraceable!

  • zelda2 2 Apr 2014, 03:42 PM

    Got same thing, only I had to buy R275 vodacom airtime and phone back with the serial no to "activate" my Ref no.

    Just got an SMS from David. I have won R180,000 on an OMO promotion. His number 0737020484 My reference 029GP I called from my land line. He said I should call back in 5 minutes. I called back again on my land line and he asked if I wanted to receive the money by cheque to my home address or deposited into my bank account. I said by cheque. He wanted me to SMS my name and address details to his 073 number. I asked for a land line number and he gave me 011 075 4295 then changed it to 011 075 4259. I asked if I could e-mail it but he insisted on an SMS. I don't know how these things work but they need ones SMS to harvest your cellphone number

  • steve 18 26 Mar 2014, 09:18 PM

    Received the same thing just now.... I had to pay R750 as the money is tax free and its their admin charges ...... its bullshit

  • Thelma Nel 25 Mar 2014, 02:44 PM

    I received sms this morning from OMO saying I won R350 000 - with ref no. etc. I am a single mother and have been paying for financial break through and thought this was an answer to my prayers. I contacted the number and got approval that I in fact did win the money. Also had two choices - bank or delivery of prize money. When I sent my address and cel phone no I got a message saying that I had to pay R1250 deposit in order for them to release the R350 000. It was for insurance and delivery charges. I haven't paid anything as I think this could be a scam.

  • Portekeet 19 Mar 2014, 09:06 AM

    Just received an sms saying that I won R350000 in the OMO2014PROMO, with a ref. no as well as contact no of the claim center. Phoned the claim center and spoke to a very friendly, fluently English speaking lady. she kept on congratulating me while confirming my prize with the ref no. Gave me 2 options of claiming. either direct banking or hand delivered cheque. I just have to sms my full name, address, id no and phone no. I then asked her if she could just confirm this in an email before I send anything because there is to many scams going around, she said yes she fully understands my concerns. So I will wait and see what her next step will be. I did not use my phone for any of the coms. Used a spare not connected to any of my personal stuff.

  • Frank9 13 Mar 2014, 11:04 AM

    another number for the SAPS to follow up on, 076 113 5038. Aren't Cell phone numbers RICA's so their users can be traced? Have the manufacturers of OMO laid charges? Are they putting pressure on the SAPS to do their work?

  • Frank9 13 Mar 2014, 09:22 AM

    Rweceived an SMS 10 minutes telling me my cell number won a lucky draw of R450 000 on OMO promotion. SMS came from 079 782 4884 telling me to phone 084 8551862 to activate ticket, SA/033.

Then said I could have a cheque couriered to me or paid into my bank account. I hung up. Definetely some sort of scam. Anyone else had this happen today.
