One of the things that has been trending lately and bugging the hell out of me is those almost anonymous phone calls when a guy on the other end claims that you have one so many things that are worth more than 1,000 KD! if you still havent received any of those phone calls then you gotta be lucky!
I probably received more than 20 calls that are similar to this case with different gifts, coupons, mobile phones, mobile lines etc. If you are a first timer you would be so overwhelmed thinking that FINALLY your luck has kicked in and out of so many people YOU have been chosen! sounds cool right? not really. Here’s a similar conversation of how it goes:
X Called: Hello
Me: Hi, whose this?
X Caller: You have been chosen randomly as a winner of a Galaxy SII, gold line, coupons & vouchers worth of 1,000 kd!!
Me: Oh really? okay! What do I have to do to collect this?
X Caller: Nothing! all you have to do is give us your information, our messenger will deliver it to you today!
A lot of us have fell into this trap, and once the messenger arrives, you realise that the phone is Korean, you have to sign a contract of commitment for a whole year for the mobile line, and the vouchers are almost can’t be used as most of the participated places are located in far areas. This just sounds perfect!
I have no idea whose authorizing this!! it just sounds wrong, it feels like people are being manipulated to think something that it’s not! and whats pissing me off is that the caller has been taught exactly what to say so you would actually believe something that it’s not!
Tell us about your experience with this, am sure you have got a call or two similar to this!
