Maxis SMS Scam – How it Works (Rampant Lawless Series)

This is totally crazy and ridiculous !! I never use, never subscribe; but now they said my subscription is RENEWED !!! - by a Maxis complainer

[Chapter 3]
By JP

Recently, I hear several grumbles from my mate about their mobile service prepaid balance being deducted unconsciously or postpaid account being charged for unsolicited SMS.
*Is this unlawful ?*

I even received one complainer tables with solid proof to show that the mobile service provider, the telco – Maxis had sent her unsolicited SMS and charges her without her consent!

According to the complainer, nickname - Amy:
I often receive unsolicited SMS since I subscribe to use Maxis as mobile operator. Some they promote to sell things; some approach me to subscribe for news alert; some with beautiful MMS to encourage me to forward the MMS to my knowing etc.” she continued, “Most of these SMS were clearly indicated by their company name, brand name or Maxis themselves
She added, “I will ignore these SMS everytimes.
She furthered, “One day, I received a SMS from [no name, only number showed 27770] written like this

{ RM0.
Ur MTweeter free trial will expire in 2 days.

Continue to follow friends tweets for only RM2/wk. }

That was strange, I never used or subscribed to 27770 or MTweeter. Why they said my [free trial], and further pursuing me to continue to use their servive?” !!!

(To my precious readers here - What would you do if you receive this ? Read the text again and digest it, then re-answer again)

She continued, “After a couple days, I received the second SMS from 27770 written -

{ RM2. Your MTweeter subscription is renewed.

To stop,
send stop mt to 27770 }

This is totally crazy and ridiculous !! I never use, never subscribe; but now they said my subscription is RENEWED !!!” She started getting mad of this.

She continued, “Some more (they indicated) that 2 dollars had been charged !

(What would you do then?)

Off course I sent back [stop mt] to the 27770.” She admitted.

(then?)

Within a minute, they sent me back this -

{ RM0. Click on the link below to unsubscribe.

http://m.mtweeter.com/stop/ }

She added, “I was unable to log that link given. I was totally frustrated and helpless then.” She continued, “Then I asked around friends to get help. They given the Maxis helpline to call.

(What if the unfortunate lady stop at this stage without calling the center, What could be happened to her billing?) !!!


She furthered on, “I called immediate to Maxis helpline. The first voice I heard was a machine sound asking me press 1 for ….., 2 for ….. and 3 for …….. Then after I press x?, the machine asked me to press this and that …and further on.

After unsuccessfully to unsubscribe to the Maxis – Mtweeter SMS service by logging into a web-link given by a continuous third SMS. Amy (the complainer) called to Maxis help-line center.

Amy furthered on, “I called immediate to Maxis helpline. The first sound I heard was a machine voice asking me press 1 for ….., 2 for ….. and 3 for …….. Then after I press x?, the machine asked me to press this and that again…and further on.
After several pressings, finally a human voice answered and I complained to her.”

Amy added, “then she calmed me down with her soft and gentle voice. She said she will help me to cancel the MTweeter service.”

(Was it been done so ?)

Amy said, “in the next day, I received another SMS from the 27770 again written -

{ Your MTweeter subscription is terminated. If it was an accident, don’t worry! You can still follow celebs & friends at http://m.mtweeter.com/ } ”

What this [accident] meant for ?” Amy doubt. She continued, “Is it meant that if the termination of subscription was accidental, then they will continue to charge me ?” !!!

She added, “And within couple of minutes while I’m still doubt on that, another SMS from [62003] pop in written

{ Maxis CS: Dear Madam, referring to your concern, SMS from 27770 is successfully blocked. TQ, Maxis } ”

She furthered, “And I was able to speak to another customer service. He told me that the MTweeter [27770] SMS had been cancelled and not to worry about the charge of RM2. It would be waived off.”

Amy was upset, “I asked him why my credit limit (there is a credit limit to users subscribe a postpaid mobile service) facing tremendous increased during these few days since the unsolicited MTweeter activated. This have limit me to make a long call out !”

Amy continued, “He (the customer service) again asked me not to worry and taught me to make a complaint to Maxis when I received my billing (at month end) if there is any mis-charging.”

Amy was totally upset with the way Maxis handled her complaint and eventually she intends to migrate her mobile service to another mobile operator.

That was only one of many living examples happening to mobile users in this country!
Many chosen the decision to [ignore] and silence about SMS scam.

In another news by the nation most read daily paper – [The Star], dated Thursday August 4, 2011, written -

{ a few days ago, I received an SMS asking me to reply in order to continue receiving SMSes. On the spur of the moment I replied, not wanting my SMS service to be unavailable.

The nightmare began as soon as I replied to this SMS. My prepaid credit of RM63 was immediately reduced to RM1.15, without me having made any long calls.


I was shocked at the drastic drop but quickly topped up another RM30, thinking that my service provider had auto deducted for my data plan. But everything went suspiciously wrong again. In the next two hours, after using my phone just once, my credit went down to RM3.21!


I called the help-line, and to my surprise, was told that I had subscribed to a package called (name provided), of which I was totally unaware. }

Maxis - Story Behind A Billion Profit Company (7th Part of Rampant Lawless Series)

Death is not the most scary part; dying but stuck to let go the last breath is the most regret!!

* Karma - It Shows *

[Chapter 2]
By JP


Maxis has became the most profitable telecommunication company (telco) in Malaysia.
Maxis top listed as the biggest gainer beating others amongst its same industry in the second quarter annual report this year 2011.


I have no question about its well performance where its BOD consists of many capable persons with great perspective and its great main shareholder – one of the richest people in Malaysia.

What makes me doubt is whether they are hiring a group of management with money scamming talent who have many to prove (their capability), to invent and operate such a scam to hook users money continuously.

Maxis - Story Behind A Billion Profit Company (6th Part of Rampant Lawless Series)

Death is not the most scary part; dying but stuck to let go the last breath is the most regret!! - by Jeff JP 1999.09.09

[Chapter 1]
By JP

Few of my buddies have advised me not to pursuit in writing the piece that could drag me suffering, with their good-hearted off course.
With my continuing blogging about to unveil the darkside of the most profitable telecommunication company (telco), the ‘top-seat’ there would have felt very unpleasant and this induces someone desperately to climb up could plot up something to show their ‘worthy royal’ to their master (the ‘top-seat’).
Nobody dares to crash against the most profitable company (off course, it’s perceived as a powerful ‘syndicate’ in collusion).
Who dares to touch a company with hundreds employees, gaining billion of profit and off course, could have linked with some ‘undisclosed background’ either in political or underground world ?” ;

Who’s the idiot dares to report officially any fraud or fault play which hooking up public money ?” ;


Who’s in the authority department dares to probe genuinely into any complaint against certain syndicate whom might had feed his/her superior periodically ?” …..


Off course many of us chosen the decision to [ignore] such a scam which only cheated off our penny of twos; many of us chosen the decision to [ignore] such a complaint which did not prick onto our own skin; many of us chosen the decision to [ignore] those unfortunates whom have nothing related to us.
This [ignore] habitual has pro-long and encourage such the scam which could has rolled off billion dollars of our nation’s hard earnings !! The most damned part is we hearsay that the billion being scammed off might have used to manipulate election result to strengthen their ‘feed-one’ power and eventually pro-long their scams. $15,000,000 or $60,000,000 considered easy money to them if they able to hold their bulwark !

What has Government done to PROTECT us? !! (5th Part of Rampant Lawless Series)


In Malaysia, we should ask: “What has the government done to protest us ?” !!!

The Asia countries had induced more scamming syndicates than any other region !!

Maxis - Story Behind A Billion Profit Company
by JP

[PREFACE]

While this country is celebrating its double festive - 54th merdeka (independence) day & 'Hari Raya Aidilfitri' (Muslim festive), joyful & cheerful could be heard everywhere.

I am not here to distort your precious moment. While you are having the great reunion with your beloved family, do you aware that few of them (even your own) might have got ‘stolen’ quietly of your hard earning by certain syndicated and well organized scam ?

While most of your reunion’s talks are grumbling about the bad economy situation, do you know that there are some legal and public listed companies might with ‘some undisclosed background’ gaining billion in profit ?

With my head still in surfing mode of daydreaming, I was living in a country named Matasia. One of my pretty playmate got herself murdered by two shots on her head then body exploded !
The case remains as a hit-chat even the killer faced his justice of being penalized to hang until die, but no much people (at least those other who are not in the court room) ever seen the killer’s face. With some good imagination of Hollywood movie that identity swapping technique widely used to protect ‘in-favoured’ person, who knows that the one to be hung then could be another scapegoat’s body ?


And my head could have still hangover with the faked cognac Louis XIII last night besides the long-lasting daydream now, one of my far-crossed-relative making a complaint to police that he been threatened by 'Ah Long' (loan-shark). An officer thrown him back with this: “Who asked you to borrow from Ah Long?”, further with this: “If everyone goes and borrows money from load shark then makes a complaint here with intention to escape from paying back, then you think we act like a shelter for Ah Long’s borrower !? “

With the officer way of treating to my poor relative, would you think he would continue with officiating his complaint ? ..Damned! These all are cracking my head while I’m feeling too heavy to command my fingers to type on with exploring the ‘darkside’ of cronyism.


Ask yourself these questions:
Would you do something to stop such a scam which rolls off billion of the nation’s hard earnings ?
Would you make an official report to complain against a scam ? To Whom ? By then, would you think that the authority you complain to could have put in genuine effort to stop the scam operation ?

The answers could be variant here unless you had chosen a decision of [ignore] to the first question.

Most of the us could have chosen the decision to ignore such a scam which is only cheats off our penny of twos. This psychological trick had been widely used by accumulating systematic scam. The tiny pence they ‘steal’ from you should accumulating into billion dollars if the number of victims increase! The answer to question of why the number of victims increase exactly hit the point here – “We all chosen the decision of [ignore] to the scam due to we ourselves just losing penny of twos” !!

Mobile phone scam is a form of spamming directed in the form of text messaging service (SMS) of a mobile phone.
As the popularity of mobile phones surged in the early 2000s, frequent users of mobile service began to receive many unsolicited (and generally unwanted) commercial advertisements being sent to their telephones through SMS. This can be extremely annoying expecially you are in the middle of tasting your lover, and your partner would definitely suspicious and ask “Who the fuck is that?
Unlike in email, some recipients could be charged a fee (or deduct their prepaid balance) without their consent for every message received ! This is absolutely damned if you intend to make a call but just to find out that your balance had ran out !!

[Rampant Lawless]
SMS scam is illegal under common law in many jurisdictions as trespass to chattels. Jurisdictions with specific SMS scam regulation and fines include China, Australia, the EU, and the United States.
In June 2009, three major Chinese carriers—China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom—imposed limits on text messaging in order to crack down on spam SMS. Under the restrictions, a phone number can send no more than 200 messages per hour and 1000/day on weekdays.
In the United States, recipients of SMS scam can file a complaint with the FCC (the US authority). Violators face substantial costs.
In California, Section 17538.41 of the B&P Code bans text message advertisement. Consumers can sue on an individual or class basis per a private right of action against unfair business practices.
In Malaysia, we should ask: “What has the government done to protest us ?” !!!

The Asia countries had induced mushrooming planting of scams by telco.
The amount of mobile scam varies widely from region to region. In North America, much less than 1% of SMS messages were spam in 2010, while in parts of Asia up to 30% of messages were scam!!

We create awareness, and we need you to share this with your loving one.
Fighting SMS scam is complicated by several factors, including the lower rate of SMS scam (compared to more abused services such as Internet email), which has allowed many users to ignore the issue. I’m very doubt that our authority could have make some good money of this by working in collusion!!
