This is a suspected crime. I don't know how to confirm.
I received an SMS from 078 883 3309, with the following:
YOU have received 2.5million With a Ref Number SA/UCL/408 from the UEFA/IPhone Champions League Ballot Contact Your Agent On 0717583051T&C's Apply.
I called the number and was told that I had won R 2.5 mil. I was asked to send my address and ID number, and call back. This still seemed reasonable.
I was then asked which network I am on (CellC) and was told this competition is "Powered by MTN" so I need to go and buy 2 x R 180 airtime vouchers, and call again once this is done.
At this point it began to seem dodgy to me, and I didn't pursue this further.
My suspicion is that they scam many people this way, get them to buy and send through airtime vouchers, and then they probably have a way to sell these again.
