Shabox UnrealMind 32330 Scam
Prologue: Remember about sms.ac service that eats up your credit? We have another one...
This is happening to me personally. Take a look at the image above.It is my July bill This stinky piece of s*it, good for nothing company drained my pocket, not to mention boiling up my blood pressure for their so-called ringtones.
NO, I never send any request for ringtones and I definitely cannot recall when I requested for it. But somehow they managed to get my phone number. But from where?
I was charged for RM2.50 for every SMS I received (regardless whether I save or discard the ringtones). And I received this on regular interval, totalled up RM21.50 for nothing! And for June I was charged for RM29.50!
Don't bother sending STOP request to that number. It will tell you some error messages, and you will keep receiving these crap. I try to call their shitty customer service number and guess what, I was kept on the line forever!
This is what I did, and you should too!
1. Call 123 (toll free Maxis customer service)
2. Ask them to block external content provider
This is what you SHOULD NOT DO
1. Never give out your phone number when you sign up for fishy promotions. Why do you want to sign up for it anyway?
