Well they're at it again. This morning, 8:21am AUEST I got this text "-my-name- this image was just received http//:papadoom.com/c/d?i=1VUil8lUrd" ..
I have an OLD 2G phone and can't even VIEW images on my phone - so I typed it in, on my laptop and the screen began to load an R rated preview trailer then stalled and asked me to REGISTER first.
WTF Videostipe? My number is a SILENT/WITHHELD number ... and I'm not some perve that would be interested in anything 'R' rated either.
My guess is whatever company is sending the mass-spams is just mass-texting blocks of entire mobile phone numbers.
Videostripe hides behind the 'disclaimer' that they have NO control over what the Ad companies are doing - well er, NO.. as the PAYING CUSTOMER, Videostripe CAN stipulate to any service provider, that such enmasse' text-spamming IS NOT TO BE UTILISED. They are the paying customer, they CAN set rules for what is/isn't acceptable for promoting their company/image. Videostripe obviously doesn't give a flying-F**K who they *** off/make themselves look bad. They're playing on statistic averages based on that "1 in 10 score rate" - if 1 million text are sent then on average, 100K 'customers' will 'register' and of those 10k will remain beyond the 1wk free trial and start paying for the service... that's a LOT of money and Videostripe isn't going to give a s**t who they *** of in the process.
Videostripe have been typing out the same lame excuse all year and still continue to mass-text-spam.
Reason of review: unsolicited spam text.
I didn't like: Unsolicited text-spamming.
