Scam from "so called" Vodacom employee

Received a call from the following nr: 072 499 4620. According to this Vodacom employee, I was the successful winner in the "Unlock Summer". The person even used address and a pin to the Vodacom offices in Midrand. the name the person used was Morne Vosloo. The person even send 2 sms, one with 2 gift vouchers for the 2 Samsung Galaxy Z fold 5 phones, and then in order to claim the R 50 000.00 rand I had to make a contribution to a community organization. For every R1000.00 contributed, another R 10 000.00 would be added to already received R 50 000.00. I checked and "yes" such a project as "Unlock summer" is running, the address is on the WhatsApp with the building. I then made a payment into the account as informed of R 4000.00. I received the vouchers in order to claim at Checkers. No need to say, Checkers did not know what I was talking about thus I called the employee and yes, he answered with an answer that he will speak to his manager and then forward me 18 vouchers of R 5000.00 each for withdrawing at ABSA ATM. The only problem was that I have to make another contribution to this community organization that will be refunded. Needless to say, I belief the person and made another payment of R 4000.00. The end result is that R 8000.00 later, this person just disappeared. I then realized this was a scam. I know I should not have believed the person, my mistake but due to being a lifelong client to Vodacom and as I checked everything looked true, I think that others should be clients must warn about this "so called Vodacom" employee. I feel terribly hurt and betrayed. I hope that this mail will be seen in the serious light it is and that something can be done to prevent this from happening to someone else. I thank you.
