Received an SMS from 0718097246 stating I my mobile number had been awarded R200 000 in the RICA ALL NETWORKS award 2014. Ref UK611SA Please call Madya on 0781179962.  I called, was congratulated and advised to SMS my postal address if I wanted a cheque or bank details if I wanted a bank deposit - then to call back and confirm the message had been received.  Receipt of SMS was confirmed and I was then advised to go and purchase R180 airtime at the shop and call back and give the number on the slip to register with the finance department - I asked how buying airtime would verify my details and asked to speak to the finance department - I was handed over to Mr Joe who said exactly as the script above,  When I said I was on the internet checking the validity of this Award, he said I must phone back when I have the airtime and he put the phone down.With the amount of SMS's I get like this, I should be a millionaire and have been able to alleviate all poverty in the land.
