SMS Scam

Dear Mark,

My name is George and I have received a sms that states I have won R95000-00 (RAND) on a Blackberry Promo.

This sms was sent from a mobile number (0820493560) and states that I should call a (Mrs precious) “small letters” on mobile number 0785862518 and quote reference no. Uk 06.

Please can this be posted on your site. I am hopeful that these people will be stopped or apprehended.

Thanking you kindly.
