Vodafone and Telecom tell us they can do nothing about these scammers, that they just *have* to take on these scam companies as customers. *Have* to take their share of the loot more like!
Again, yesterday, I spoke to a friend who said his father had just lost $25! And again NOTHING was sent/texted from his phone - he'd simply completed an on-line quiz. All the scam companies need is a mobile phone number, NO PIN required. Even though Paul Brislen of Vodafone keeps insisting that a PIN number is always required to subscribe. Another lie.
How many more Kiwis will Telecom, Vodafone and the Commerce Commission allow to be scammed before Kiwis have had enough and put the pressure on them to do something about it? Some how Telecom and Vodafone have managed to cloud the issue with the Commerce Commission so that this obvious scan can slip under the radar. Surely New Zealand has more need of these millions of $$$ than these foreign scammers.
I'll be switching to 2 degrees just as soon as I get my free SIM - thats the only problem I have with them, the delay in their getting out the SIMs.
