I got this Unwelcome SMS from Maxis Hotlink on 17 March 2010 at 2:46pm.
The SMS stated Maxis Hotlink will credit RM13.00 to my account via deduction of my Hotlink Rewards Redemption latest by 25 March 2010.
If I DO NOT wish to get the credit then MUST Reply before 18 March 2010!
Less than 10 hours force Notice!
WHY must I Reply if I NEVER Ask for it?
It is like a Bank will send you a iPhone by automatically deducting your Bank balance if you NEVER reply to their Unwelcome notification Offer!
A Clever and Good way of Marketing?
Imaging your Credit Cards Company start to sending You Travel Holiday Packages or 58-Inch Widescreen Plasma TVs HDTV Offer and you forget to reply or too buzy or too late to reply, what happen?
You must be a “Proud” owner of this 58-Inch Widescreen Plasma TVs HDTV or “Enjoy” the Travel Holiday Packages even you NEVER ask for it!
This is truly an Unethical Business Practices!
Since when Maxis has started this Unethical Business Practices?
As a consumer, I know how and have a Right when to redeem my Hotlink Rewards.
I do not need any of these Unwelcome Notification Offer!
Would it be better if the SMS notification is Reword in this way?
Maxis Hotlink will credit RM13.00 to my account via deduction of my Hotlink Rewards Redemption latest by 25 March 2010. If you Wish to get the credit then Reply before 18 March 2010!
When replying to reject the Unwelcome SMS, I get notification that Maxis Hotlink will send SMS approval by 25 March 2010, on whether my request is successfully.
I need to wait for approval for this Unwelcome SMS?
