"A Hamilton woman who entered a television text competition is fuming that her mobile phone provider refuses to do anything to stop money being taken from her. "
Hellooooo..Welcome to the real world.
I personally think premium rate SMS competitions should be banned in NZ but the simple fact is they aren't. Why is this woman bleating to the media however that Vodafone are some how to blame? If you want to be unsubscribed from the service pay your $3 to send in a TXT which will stop the service.
For once I want to defend Vodafone. I'll be annoyed if you refund this customer due to her stupidity. Compare it to another real world scenario - should Holden be responsible for your speeding tickets if you get caught speeding in one of their cars?
