It started this morning...


Didn't take long for someone to make up something so that others will spam you in the hope of getting $50 credit.



Don't get me wrong, although I like free texting even if its only to 021/029 handsets, it isn't exactly at a time when I need it.

Arghh! And people will fall for it. Like the old "Bill Gates will pay you to forward this e-mail" stuff of years ago.

its what free texting does to people.

Things like this defy logic, its quite funny. First off after getting this message a ton of times this morning, before I thought about forwarding it there was inconsistent and incorrect spelling. Some english, some txt spelling and some just plain wrong - see original - further to that why would any mobile operator in NZ give anyone $50 credit, that $50 if I called all telecom customers from my 021 phone would cost vf more than just texting it away.
Fools!
