MTN Scam! MTN Scam!! MTN Scam!!! by Champella(m): 11:19am On Sep 02, 2015
Dear wonderful people on Nairaland


It's rather unfortunate that i had to make use of this medium to show my displeasure on the way my network provider (MTN) has just scammed me.


I believe there are so many people who have been scammed by MTN and other network providers.


I recharged my account with N100 worth of airtime and dialed the codes *556# to check my balance and a pop-up menu came up.


On the pop-up menu, they advertised 100MB at the rate of N100 once you text "PFW" to 131.


I did just that hoping to receive the 100MB they advertised. Instead, i received this very funny message. . .


"You have successfully subscribed to the Project Fame WEEKLY bundle. Valid till 05/09/2015 21:44:36. Visit (www.projectfamewestafrica.com) to enjoy. Text PFB to 131 to check.Your online voting PIN will be sent to you shortly"


I feel very bad that a company as big as MTN would decide to scam me of my hard earned money by advertising for a service they do not provide.


I therefore call on the authorities of MTN to either:

1. return my "hard earned N100"

or

2. Credit my account with 100MB


Thank you as you do so

From:
An MTN Scammed victim



Mods, if this is not the right section please move it there. We need to let these network providers know that we are tired of all their excesses.

Thank you

My Broda u ar d one dat made a mistake. U saw PFW which simply mean "project fame west africa" and u know that is an mtn programme. U have only subscribed to vote for any of the contestants that's y they have giving u a voting pin, so go ahead and use ur mb wisely.
We fall victims by trying to be greedy. MTN can only give u 10MB for #100 and never a 100MB.

Don't mind mtn.... it's a way to scam unsuspecting people. Most people won't know that the 100mb is just for project fame website until after they have parted with with 100 naira. Not just that, there is always this advert on ipulse plan that if you spend 200 naira in a day, you will be given 250 mb free browsing between 1am and 5am. But for where... I don try am for more than 5 times. Mtn no give me anything. Just scaming people.

The way the message comes up any body could be tempted cos they didn't say text PFW to vote for any thing instead they said text PFW to get 100mb.
Moreover they can use any thing as subscription messages even though it's "GOAT" so don't blame the guy

This serves as a lesson to most of us...always read thoroughly before accepting an offer/plan/services so as to avoid stories that touch.

If not only that Seun Osewa is an accomplice to this crime he wouldnt had shield not making this a front page with immediate effect. This forum called Nairaland is the only avenue to make our cries heard to the whole world(The cries of the poor) and yet in it the Mods screws you with their beaurocratic bottle neck. This should make front page but they wouldnt do it. When Tonto sneezes it makes it to the front immediately, or Buhari snap picture it makes it too

So what is the scam here? Didn't they give you the 100mb pfw they promised? What stopped you from making little search to find out what it's all about? Everybody talking scam now even when they deliberately throw their money away.

@op u deserve a big knock on the head for...

(A) opening a thread n shouting "scam" when u r clearly at fault here.

(B) Making us waste our data opening this thread.



Due to ur greediness u subbed for a plan u knew nothing of n u r screaming "scam" here angry You saw "PFW" n u didn't bother to check what it was because u were so focused on the "N100 for 100mb" part.


By the way thanks for cracking me up with the "my hard earned N100" part of ur post grin grin
