Omo prize winning scam

I received an SMS on 22nd April from David Dube on cell number 0737020484 indicating that I had won R180,000 in an Omo promotion with a number 029GP. I phoned him on 23rd April and was asked how I would like it paid. I indicated that it should be paid into my bank account and was then told I would need to purchase a Vodacom airtime voucher for R275 and send them the voucher number beginning with a 9. I then checked on the internet and discovered numerous similar scams experienced by others so am reporting this one as well. I have informed my bank to watch my account.
