    Ek het ook 'n boodskap gekry dat ek Desmond Molozi moet skakel gedurende November 2012 Dat ek R50000.00 gewen het met Fifa Legacy Trust na die sokker wereld.Ek moes baie keer geld inbetaal wat hy belowe het weer terug betaal word aan my.Ek sukeel nou nog om enige betaling te kry en hy bly nog altyd geld vra vir oordrag fooie.Hy het verlede week vir my laat weet dat die bedrag wat hulle nou aan my gaan uitbetaal is R795000.00.Maar ek hey niks ontvang nie.Die Nommer wat hy vir my gestuur het is 07205030573082.Ek sal bly wees as iemand my kan laat weeet wat ek moet doen om my geld te kry.

    In these cases, it is nearly impossible to track the person down. With regards to RICA, it's sadly a pointless system - one can buy a Rica-ed sim card for just R10 on a street corner - so there is no real way of tracking them down. Even with regards to the bank accounts - they are often opened with factitious details or sometimes unrelated person would open the account for a fee and simply hand over the ATM card and PIN number to the crooks.

  • R250k winner 15 Nov 2012, 09:19 AM

    I received a "NETWORK NOTIFICATION" that states my mobile number just won me R250k, had a reference number and the option to SAVE or press OK. I pressed neither. These @$$hole$ have nothing better to do with their time. This Smith character should be locked up just for wasting my time, and for potentially stealing from the innocent.

So i called the number but knew it was scam but wanted to actually hear what they had to say. A black guy spoke had another accent and asked me call back from my cell phone otherwise i will not get my prize. I did not understand anything else of the conversation and told him that i am not interested. I called from an unknown number. Surely if this scam is caryying on for soo long the SAPS should get involved!!!!

    Yep. Same from 078 751 18576. R950 000 - lucky me. Only I'm supposed to call the 'claims department'. The most annoying part for me is that the police seemingly isn't doing the obvious thing - hiring some nerd to sit and get the numbers right from this site, trace them to the scammers and give them hell! - or does that only happen on TV crime shows? - The SMS woke me up last night - and yeah, for about a minute I was excited!

  • Peter41 14 Mar 2012, 11:29 PM

    Realistically you have to be pretty thick to fall for a scam like this one. I recieved the following from the number 0764859587, "CONGRATULATIONS! Your mobile number has won you R850,000 in FIFA 2012 Game Of Life Compensation Promo. Ref FC/701. Claims Call Agent Carlos Larson 0721585090". Note the grammar, really?! Secondly what the bleep is a compensation Promo?! Dont quite see how the police cant catch these people.

    Hi, I just received an sms stating I have won R650 000 on FIFA 2010 PROMOTIONS, Ref no.(MM2) and to call Agent MR.M.PETERSON on 072 079 9997.The number they sms from is 076 796 8149.I called the number and its a Nigerian guy, he said that there are 3 methods of payment, sms banking details to his number, go to the office in jhb or he can send a cheque. This is definitely a scam! Please dont reply and I hope all these Nigerians DIE!!!!

    Hi, I just received an sms stating I have won R350 000 on FIFA AWARD PROMOTIONS, Ref no.x97 and to call Agent Philip Mola on 071 540 2406. I thought as much this could be a scam and googled it and this site came up. I then called the number and it sounded like a Nigerian guy, he said that there are 3 methods of payment, sms banking details to his number, go to the office in jhb or he can send a cheque. This is definitely a scam!

  • Mell 5 Jan 2012, 04:02 PM

    Also received an sms with the same FIFA promotion, he asked me why im phoning from a landline, they need to confirm my cell..(1st set of alarm bells went off) then they wanted my bank details for register purposes(but im not that stupid), i told him to send me a cheque. He told me it comes from UK, i asked where his offices are he said Mandela bay then proceeded to tell if i want the money i must pay the insurance! (yeah right). gave him my email to forward all the info he requires (lets see if that happens) then i will report it to Fraud department. i told him he is on the fraud site and the answer was everyone has given them a bad name and the FIFA has only been giving prizes from Decembere 2011, (what nonsense as i see comments from the begining of the year?) beware all FIFA wouldnt notify you by sms.

  • Dirk3 5 Jan 2012, 01:43 PM

    Hi Guys, I received a sms this morning at 4:03 (Which is weir enough to get a sms at 4 in the morning). CONGRATULATIONS! YOUR MOBILE NUMBER SELECTED ON FIFA FANS PROMO HAS WON YOU R450,000 FOR PAYMENT CALL US ON 0729905180 8AM-5PM YOUR WINNERS REF NO IS FFP072 Now please dont be naive, I phoned FIFA directly after that and they have no idea about these prizes, but in hindsight the zero punctuation in the sms should have been the second clue. Hope this helps, but it is my theory that the information that they ask for is for the purposes of identity theft because all your information is linked via Cellphone numbers,email, ID numbers, etc. Beware!

    Hi Also got sms from 0721034176 saying I won R750,000 in a FIFA GAME OF LIFE PROMO. Ref No: CAT/101. To claim I had to call Tim Hixson on 0714769795. Called and a nigerian answered. He wanted me to send him my bank details and to buy 2 MTN vouchers of R275 to activate my claim.I knew it was a scam but played him up. I gave him my email address to give written proof. In no time his YAHOO email came with a certificate confirming the win. I then told him I would call tomorrow morning. Ja, beware of these crooks.

    Received an sms to say I had won R350 000 from Fifa Fan Promotions. I phoned back and spoke to Chris Anthony 072 2243222. I was given a choice of giving my bank details or receiving a cheque from Fifa UK sent by Fedex, in which case they needed my Name, ID & Address. Needless to say I did not get any info from me.
