|Ever Sent Airtime To An Unknown Number Due To Typo Error? Share Your Ordeals.. by Ch1z0(m): 11:33pm On Apr 17, 2015|
It can be a frustrating experience to mistakenly send airtime to an unknown number while using share n sell... Even more frustrating if it's a large amount.
Well, here's my experience...
I was trying to get some airtime from my young cousins phone while he was sleeping(eh eh.. I wasn't trying to steal, I was planning to tell him when he woke up.).
Meanwhile I had a deal with my bro who was with the phone at that time that I would transfer some airtime in exchange for downloading 2go for him.
I forgot how to use the airtime sharing service so I had to do some googling. After that I started the transfer process. In my bid to be a sharp guy in my broda's eye I mis-typed my phone number and, KAKPOOM! The transfer was made(faster than usual unlike when mtn had to ask you to confirm the transfer).
I was beaming wid smiles and decided to check my airtime balance. I still found the same 0.35NGN in my account(guys like me who spend airtime browsing always have it like this... It's Neva 0.00.. Neither is it up to 1.00). I was like 'mtn don come with this their slow network'.
Then, a thought entered my head, what if I had typed the wrong number? . I decided to cross-check it to be sure and...
IT WAS THE WRONG NUMBER.
I dont know why, but I just started laughing(maybe because it was a small amount).
I immediately told my brother about it and he was like, 'call the number naa!!'.. There and then I tried the number but it was switched off.. Lol..
And then I thought of nairaland. 'Why not share your story', I thought to myself. And now here I am.
What an experience!
