Promo 2010 / mtn nigeria promo 2010

1 Nigeria Review updated:
Contact information:

I am writing to express my dismay at the attitude at which you handle Promo 2010.

I sent an sms for this promo and was asked questions which was answered correctly. The questions are:

1. What is the acronym of the Football governing body? A: FIBA B:FIFA C: FIVA, my answer was B: FIFA.

A text message was sent to me to confirm that I got it correctly and a second question asked.

2. What will a Linesman carry? A: Stick B:Umbrella C: Flag. My answer was C:Flag.

Another text message was sent to me to confirm that I got it correctly and a third question was asked.

3. How many officials officiate a football match? A:4 B: 3 C: 2. My answer was B: 3.

I was expecting to get a message that I got it correctly to qualify for the daily draw of N1m or other prizes, but to my dismay what I got was a rude shock.

Below is the text message sent to me by MTN Promo 2010:

''The Keeper saved it. U were wrong, here is another question: How many teams play in the EPL? A: 15 B:20 C:25 Txt back letr A. B or C only''

If I may ask, what is the relationship with the number 3 question asked, how many officials officiate a football match? and the answer 'The keeper saved it'

I hope this is not another scam Promo to defraud innocent Nigerian subcribers of their hard earned money. The 200 Naira that I spent answering those questions may not be much, but its something to me. I wonder how many million subcribers that has suffered like me and denied the opportunity to win a prize and also the free sms.

I answered those questions with an expectation, what did I get for it? I want you to investigate these short practices, and also to compel MTN Nigeria to compensate as many of us that has suffered this very unfair treatment.

I guess MTN Nigeria will not like the media to hear this, considering the fact that they have a reputation to protect.

    The director,

    Mtn sms promotion


    Dear sir/ ma:

    complaints about mtn sms promotion

    I, jimoh akanbi olorunse received a message on my phone (08036088301) informing me that i'm one of the lucky winner of the mtn fifa sms promo (n1, 000, 000 : one million naira only). I was given a pin with which I logged in. on getting to the third stage of the confirmation, I found out that you requested for some information which are very unusual of you about my bank details... e. g atm sim code, number e. t. c.

    Getting to the final stage, it couldn't confirm my bank details. I therefore write to request your directives on what to do. also, I need to that the message is from mtn as we have received several messages from mtn and our banks not to reveal our pin to anyone.

    I wonder why you are now requesting formy atm pin because mtn is announcing currently warning against that..

    I also wish to confirm that "" is official for enquiries..

    I shall be most grateful if you could relpy my mail.

    Thank you.

    Jimoh a. olorunse

    Hey!!!. I decided to check mtn website and lay my complains like you guys but after reading all your postings it dawned on me that I have been scammed. look, if the text came in with 2010 as the sender forget it. it happened to me. I have spent thousands too replying their messages thinking that am playing a genuine game trying out my luck. this is serious, I think mtn should do something about it.08064601108.
