OMO Washing Powder competition

Received an SMS that OMO has awarded R450 000 with ref no. 0029rsa. For claim contact ZANDILE on 0734196125.I didn't phone from the cellphone the message was received on. She answered that they were a promotional company for OMO and took the ref number and I gave the incorrect cellphone number.  She asked how I would like the money by bank transfer or delivery of the cheque to my address.  I asked what the catch was and she said there was none, that I must just send an sms giving the ref no. and cellphone number and then phone her back once sent.  I asked again what the catch is and she asked how I want the money so I said by delivery of cheque and she then told me to phone back.When I phoned back it goes onto an automated voice message, and there is no option to leave a message.This has to be sorted out!

    The scam and irregularities that go on in the name of Omo is realy getting worse. Where do these crimanals get your phone number is not from te Omo office? I took part in one promotion from a sticker on a Omo Liquied container - I nearly got caught, but the pay first then receive the price money rang the allert bells. Still - where did they get my number if not from Omo? When you phone to ask why do you have to pay R2000 to receive your price they get so rude. The cell numbers involved are: 0786900127 and 0730438150.

    I just received an sms saying omo washing powder have rewarded you R200000 (CODE:022.SA)Contact Miss Sharon or Mr Frank. My question is where did they get my number? And is there some way to blocking these scams?

  • Jeffry 13 May 2015, 03:38 PM

    I got the same message that said i won 200,000 from OMO washing my mind i knew it was not true but i called them anyway. I got a long story from a lady named Sharon she asked fro the code and stuff and asked me to call after five minutes. After about 15 minutes i called her she asked me how i wanted my money delivered by cheaque to my how or transferred to my account. I gave my details on purpose and i also called the my banks fraud detection service i told them to keep an eye on my account. I think this is the best way to catch them.

  • Jenny Currie 23 Mar 2015, 04:04 PM

    I reached a Mrs Hene, who answered her ph as if she worked for Omo. I asked her if it was a scam and she assured me it was not! I gave her my reference number and she told me to phone back in 5 mins. 10mins later when I phoned she hung up! And a second time! Undoubtedly this has to be a scam!

  • sandy6 10 Mar 2015, 01:55 PM

    i got an sms similar to your one, i'm sure it is a scam.
