Latest Scam By Scammers by Enoquin(f): 9:45am On Aug 02, 2012
Someone dropped by my office in ecstasy showing me a text message that was sent from 'MTN'. The text goes thus:

Y'ello!! Your Number Have Been Credited 50,000 Naira AIRTIME. On The Cards Reward. Your Code Is 3232 For Your Line To Be Loaded Now Login To

I could not help laughing...Notice that each letter starting a word is capitalized; their other mistake was putting 'dom' beside 'mtn'...I only felt bad deflating the poor guy's joy...
Free airtime ko, Free recharge ni...MTN and their 'stingy kokoness' will not dash you any airtime, so beware...

HABA! Which kind front page.
If you are gullible enough to even read that text twice, that is your business.
MTN has been saying time without number , the only website is mtnonline . com and if you win anything , their agent will personally call you
