Vodacom fights scam SMSes

Vodacom today (7 March 2012) went live with a Facebook page to spread the word about scam SMSes.

“Located on the Vodacom Facebook page (www.facebook.com/vodacom), the tab is designed so that Facebook users can submit any SMS scams they have received, or simply “plus one” an existing scam,” Vodacom said.

“The plus-one button is located next to recently-added scams, and will allow users to note the prevalence of that particular SMS scam.  The tab can be used by anyone who has access to Facebook.”

“When users enter a new SMS scam on the tab, they will need to enter the number from which the SMS came, as well as the accompanying message. The identity of the Facebook user is kept anonymous,” continued Vodacom.

“Once a scam has been submitted, it will then be investigated by Vodacom’s Forensic Services team who will take appropriate action.”
