Win an Apple iPad!

Suddenly this message popped up on my screen and it read..





I am selected??

Curiously, I clicked the site and filled up whatever I was asked..




Finally, I was offered a chance to win an Apple iPad!



I answered a few questions and I had one more step to go!


So, without hesitation, I texted ON WIN..


Shortly afterwards, I received this message.


Then, next..

My goodness, I was charged RM4 for this message..


One after another came but it was terminated as my credit was too low.


Phew..Later when I topped up my credit, I quickly texted STOP ALL..


It was a trick..I learned a lesson..

Never ever trust this kind of scam..

  3. The modus operandi of this scam is very easy,, you see if one day there are 100 person fall to this scam, the scammer would have made RM400 nett, how about the next day and the day after..hahahah.

    you are lucky, you could still stop it in time, others got it quite bad, simply because they keep sending back SMS and each SMS you receive, you will always be charged for like at least RM.50,, and worst still,sometime the telco will tell you they can't stop the scammer and only you will have to inform the culprit ..

  4. Wow! They gotcha! But thanks for telling us about this. At least we will not fall victim of this scam.

    I really hate it when I receive contest SMS. I just cannot believe it to be real. Not only that, a scammed call, that tried to fork out my credit card details.

    Just be careful yeah?

    Have a nice day.

  9. Be careful of people who call your handphone, sms, email and say you win something too. My answer to all these people is either, 1. Nothing is free in this world or 2. There is no such thing as a big bull frog jumping about everywhere in the street, haha!

  12. Oh dear. The scammers are very clever nowadays. Glad it was only $4 and your credit (hope not too much) that you lost.
