Vodacom  still profiting from wasp fraud

When appeared on 26 July with a lead reporting that rogue WASPs have been allowed to steal (mostly FROM Vodacom subscribers) airtime unhindered for over a decade, the first thought that crossed our minds was that MyBroadband was plagiarising, wholesale, a story published in Noseweek 11 years ago!

I have been fighting Vodacom CEO for nearly a year to get them to stop supplying my details to people who call with this complaint. I had registered a company name ( LLC registered in the USA in 2007 that did internet marketing ) with them. In 2016 I closed the said company. A 3rd party based out of Cyprus AND a WASPA member registered a very similar company name

Now when someone calls Vodacom to complain about monies being debited, they give the angry client my details, notwithstanding me having written to the secretary of the CEO and the CEO directly supplying all the details , supplying all the proof including letters from the WASPA member. In my case, the WASPA member is Netsmart in Cyprus 0867 940 7333. 99% of the angry calls I get are from rural African cell phone owners who have no idea how to resolve their problem, so I sms the correct details to them

I am very careful about clicking links in any message and never do . 2 weeks ago I received and sms from Vodacom telling me that seeing as I am subscribed to content from Vodacom I could manage it at another link...which turned out to be the download link at the playstore for the Vodacom app. I never subscribed to any service ever

Time to port my numbers elsewhere
