Scam Pretending to be Samsung

Received an SMS as follows: Samsung has awarded you R350000. Ref no:0013SA.For claims contact 0798665179I googled this. Found nothing, so I phoned. Indian fellow answered as Samsung.I asked him immediately if this was a scam and how could I verify that I was at Samsung. He insisted that I was. Anyway the  conversation progressed.I listened to him. He told me this wasn't a competition but annual draw done by Samsung. I again asked him how I could verify I was at Samsung. He gave me a landline number to call, which I immediately googled. That number 0218237495.That phone number brought me to this website....Need I say more.
