Unsolicited Reverse Charge Txts

Here in the UK, my wife's mobile has recently been hit with a spate of many 'unsolicited reverse charge txts'.

A reverse charge txt, is where the mobile owner requests a service (weather report etc.) which is provided by txt and chargeable. Unscrupulous companies send these without them being requested and pocket the money.

Had just one arrived it would probably have been ignored. But many were sent, on occasions two in the same second, or in subsequent seconds. Hence it was realised something was untoward.

So far much money has been stolen and it has proved impossible to stop. The network provider is helping but it takes time.

I and others more knowledgeable were unaware such a facility existed.

Be aware!!!

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

We have the similar problem here. Everytime my mom recharge her account the provider cut 250 Tsh for the ringtone service she didn't request, sometimes she was afraid to recharge the account instead i lend her my phone. It took a while to fix the problem.
There is this one provider(tiGo) who charge 50 Tsh for calling customer care. And the customer care is a big problem, if u call them u will end cursing them because they have low knowledge.

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.

Hi Kuwese,

I do not know the value of 250 Tsh, maybe not much, but this becomes big money if applied to all Tanzanian phones whenever they top up.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
