|SMS Spam on Vmobile Nigeria (& other networks) by whizkid(f): 2:34pm On Jul 06, 2005|
This is a warning!
A friend of mine received an SMS saying that he stands a chance of wining N750, if he forwards same text to 10 people on the Vmobile network. Thinking that he had nothing to lose, he spends N150 and gains N600 in return, he started texting away.
3 days later, he got an SMS from Vmobile saying " Dear subscriber, if you receive an SMS asking you to send to 10 people on the Vmobile network and get N750 worth of airtime, please ignore it as it is not from Vmobile".
This is not the first time something like this is happening, I wonder what the network providers are doing about this. If you ask me, I think it is a ploy to rip off their customers, afterall who stands to benefit from all that text messages sent by innocent victims; your guess is as good as mine.

Well Trish u said the message was that "he stands a chance", so technically even if it was really sent by ECONET, still didn't mean he was guaranteed the 750 Naira. also there are hackers who spend hours trying to brek into websites just for the fun of it. It may just be some mischeivious pple at work.
