The Consumer Council warns mobile phone users to be careful when replying to text and multi-media messages offering them free downloads or subscriptions to games, tests or matchmaking services as they may face expensive charges.
Nowadays, teenagers always send messages to the others. In my opinion, sending messages is a good way to communicate with people. Consequently, I am so angry that the people send the charged messages to the others. Some victims received a lot of messages which they are charged $5 each. If I am one of the victims, I will complain about the message services. So, the best way that people can protect themselves is to treat their cell number with great care. If you’re online and someone is asking for your cell number, be very careful about giving it out. Also, users should never disclose personal data to the third party on the internet. Be careful!
