I received an sms at 21:28 tonight from 071-375-8687: Congratulations you have won R450,000.00 in the Rica yearly promo, your Ref no(SA55Z). Call Mr Richard Law. on 0780750467. Obviously this is a scam sms, although I could use the extra money for drugs and hookers... The funny thing is, I only bought this sim card on Wednesday. I haven't given this number to more than 5 people yet, and already on Friday I received a call from a life insurance company.
Is there a cellphone company person on here who can tell me how this works? I'm confused, who exactly has access to RICA data and our numbers, and is RICA or CellC selling these lists?
