Level 1: Cadet

company 8Z mobile scam

This is just a note that the company 8Z gameshaus is a scam company as is mobidol. using premium sms without notification mobidol will use some hidden link to subscribe you for the $10 per week, then when you unsubscribe with STOP,  you will receive a notification that you are subscribed to gameshaus for $5 per week. it is confirmed that there has been NO usage of this phone between the sms STOP and the subscription. a scam.


obviously the action of smsing STOP to mobidol does not just stop your subscription (the one you never agreed to hidden in some wall of text or obscured link), it also triggers stage 2 of the scam.


if this message gets filed with the other threads about mobidol, then i will know that telstra are complicit with these criminals. premium smsing without security should need to be enabled, not enabled as default.
