An Irish company “www.prizeclub.ie” sends you a text.
Heres the scam, you click on a link that redirects you to a website address, All seems innocent at first you answer a question, On the website you are not told that it will cost anything and as you are answering via a website address everything looks is fine, but it’s not. They send you a message back to your phone which then cost 2 euro.
I was scammed by this and ended up answering a few more that I should without thinking about it, I must say it’s great social engineering scam.
I am going to be emailing comreg and o2 in relation to this, as I feel that these companies who present seemly great offer are scamming by people into thinking it is free until it’s too late.
At least with betting companies or the lotto you know before hand how much it is going to cost you to play.
I wonder did I over use the word scam ?
