    yup, this is a scam. They've been around for a while now, but change their contact details every now and then. Perhaps you should report the phone number to Vodacom?

    So if the RICA thingie was done properly, then the owner of the number should be traceable.
    Lets see if the RICA story actually works.

    Can the number be submitted via the Vodacom website? Because I am hard of hearing it will be nigh impossible for me to do it....
    Feel free to do it if you are willing?

    Hi Loma,

    This is your opportunity for some form of legitimate vindication! Provide us with all the details, as much detail as possible. How much you paid, how you've paid, how did you contact them telephone, email etc, the person's name etc.
    Try and get them to provide some form of explanation right here...
