    If they are not a member of the Wireless Application Service Providers' Association ...stay clear !!!


    "..I’ve got a considerable database to whom I can start marketing right away "

    What about the confidentiality of customers' personal information and the fact that you can not sell or distribute such information to any other party without the explicit consent of the customer ?

    Hey , you can remain cynical and do business the same old way and get the same old results. Or you can join the e-commerce way of doing things, and access a far wider client base and yes even make money while you're sleeping.

    I don't know if this company is legite or not, but short service no's are the way to go. If done properly you can make money. Thats why so many corporates have jumped on this band wagon.

    Its also the reason that goverment are investigating the business practice, because it turns astronomical amounts of money p/a.

    If it's that successful, why would they want you to do it? They can rather do it themselves and pocket the money themselves...

    Legitimate selling via the web I have no problem with but these short code companies are 99.99999999% con artists! Like mentioned before even to get them to stop and get off their list you have to pay. And 9 times out of 10 they have numerous items for sale... so you as the poor sucker have to SMS them everytime to get off each product list... even @ R2 a go they make money off you when you never contacted them it the first place! AND because most are scumbags they actually never take you off the lists anyway, so all you do is suffer in silence or make enough of a stink with the governing body that they eventually might let you go. Furthermore it is precisely this type of industry that fuels the identity theft syndrome as databases are sold for the contact details that they contain!

    hehe I can assure you I don't call anybody unless they ask me to - and then I only call them during 9AM and 4Pm weekdays only. The only sms's I would send are order updates, payment confirmation and delivery confirmations - also only 9AM to 4PM weekdays.

    Believe it or not, I also get phoned by (Mainly) insurance companies and the travel people. I win cars alsomst weekly, from competitions I don't enter apparently at a petrol garage or shopping center, lol

    I couldn't agree more... It's the best feeling in the world to have set up a successful e-com business that virtually runs itself, and just about everytime you check e-mail there's an order or payment notification. Oh and the midnight sms's from the bank notifying of payments into your account is also another nice thing to look forward to each morning

    Default SMS Boodskap

    Ek het gister 'n SMS boodskap ontvang. Dit kom daarop neer dat my sel nommer het vir my 'n bedrag geld gewen. Om dit op te eis moet ek 'n sekere persoon by 'n gegewe E pos Adres kontak en 'n verwyssings nommer verskaf. Is dit eg of net weer 'n skelm strek? Ek is half kopsku vir die tipe van ding.

    watse tip email adres is dit?
    As dit a free een is dan is dit heelmoontlik. as dit n legit maatskappy is dan kan jy dalk in kyk daarop.

    Maar moenie jou hopes up kry as jy nie daai bedrag wen nie
    If you don't have a sense of humour, you probably don't have any sense.

    Yip, jy is heeltemal reg! As jy hulle kontak moet jy eers betaal om jou geld te kan eis... en dan raak hulle net weg.

    Ek sou nie twee keer gekyk het nie. Niks is vir niks, en ek glo nie aan feetjies wat geld uitdeel omdat hulle jou sel nommer laaik nie.

    Ja, dit bevestig net my vermoede. Dit gaan oor Fifa en die bedrag is 'n paar miljoen US dollar. Die E pos adres eindig met.com.hk. Ek het net vir interesantheid 'n toets gedoen en dit wil vooekom of die adres eg is, maar na my mening beteken dit niks.

    Cool

    Ek staan tans oor die $256 000 000 sterk. Ek het niks daarvoor gedoen nie, nie eers gewerk nie.....

    Dit is 'n baie bevoorregte posisie om in te wees behalwe, ek moet die vervlakste geld nog gaan OPEIS. Van die geld is nagelaat in Kenia deur 'n Amerikaner en nou soek hul net 'n bankrekening nommer om dit in te deponeer ens.

    Nee wat, delete die snert en moenie eers terug antwoord nie. Nogal jammer, sou kon doen met 'n stel Kumho's...
