Hi – I received an sms on my phone stating that my phone has won R175 000.00 in the Mobile Merit Awards (Ref No : MMA4UX and was told to contact Rose on : 0827197528 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. When we did phone in a guy by the name of Ralph answered and confirmed that it was true. He then said that I must purchase 2 x R400.00 telkom pre paid and phone him back. When I asked him if he is sure this is not a scam he got very upset and said that he will not ask us to purchase telkom pre paid if it was a scam.
According to him when we do purchase the telkom pre paid he will then take us through the process and he said once we received the cheque within 3 hours he will give us banking details and we must deposit 10% of the winnings into the account that he is going to give us. I sure did not believe him becasue if I won any money why must I go though all this process and how come it is a cellphnoe no that we must contact not a land line and also when we question them they switch their phones off? I would appriecate it if we could know who these people are that are doing this and charge them.
People like this we must jsut pray for them and let God deal with them.
