They requested that I text back the code they gave me - I hope this doesn't mean I have given them pernission to scam my Vodafone account. I hope 2degrees don't work in with the scammers such as IQ Quiz etc.

That code is just to confirm your mobile number is actually yours (ie: you have that mobile number in your possession).

Hey rubygirl - rest assured that you have not given us permission to scam your Vodafone account.

Cheers!

What if I signed with 2Degrees? Would you then allow scammers to access my account with you? Or is your company willing to make a stand with this? Will you be making money from this practice? Do you consider this to be a genuine service? Or do you think people who allow the scammers to slip under their scam detector to be fair game for ripping off? I would really LOVE to hear your feedback on all of the above questions.

Why is everyone suddenly so paranoid about scams? I imagine 2degrees would take every step they could to ensure that no one gets scammed, let alone scam themselves.
A new company in any market has a lot to loose if they make mistakes, so my guess is they will be doing their best to make everyone happy.

Rubygirl hijacked this thread. She's been warned. Nothing to see here...
