my mom had this horrible thing happen to her.
she was browsing on facebook, and there was what looked like a legitimate link to a competition for a well known store, it said they were giving away a voucher.
She clicked on it, entered, and now, it turns out it was a hoax, and as a result now, money is being taken out of her phone each week.
She has a prepayed phone, and if she tops up by 10 euro, about 7 euro is being taken out.
Its awful. People disgust me. How they will do anything to scam people out of money.
I am going to call her phone provider tomorrow, as I am the nominated person on her account, so they’ll talk to me. I really hope they can do something about it.
As it stands now, she cant top her phone up with money because the money is automatically taken each tuesday, and when the service messages come in, that say they have taken money, there is no unsubscribe link.
Fucking awful! Makes me so mad for her!
