Thread: 0860 Toll Free Scams

  1. #1

    Angry 0860 Toll Free Scams

    Why is it that reputable companies in South Africa openly deceive the public by advertising their 0860 number then calling it toll free??

    086x is a share call number.
    0800 is a toll free number!

    One such example, on a previous thread rent to own options were being discussed, and teljoy was mentioned, albeit negatively who also offer this false toll free number!!

    Edit - Who else do you know that is openly lying on their Website or their printed material?

    Also watch out for the Maxicall 0861 ones which is fully paid by the caller at long distance rates.
