Is it a scheme in a mask?

05 Jan

Kenyans are being lured into instant cash by simply sending text messages. But, could this be a scheme in a different costume? Why do I say so, you may ask?

You might have noticed that some of those winners are the same persons. They claim to be giving a particular amount each day, then why is it that we do not see new winners each day? Why is it that some of the said competitions do not post winners in the local dailies?

So, what does one get with the repeats? That there were was no winner that day. Meaning, they save on what they were to give that day and if you consider 1 million people sending a text each at 60 or 69 shillings, that is approximately 60 to 69 million daily. Mind you, out of this one million people, others will send more than one text. So the organizers are all smiles to the bank.

But for the poor Kenyan, it’s all about fleecing them their hard-earned cash.

    Sad that even established business compnies are into these schemes. Are they going to add the root from these schemes to thier annual profits? I wonder!

    Where is the Betting Licensing & Control Board? Aren’t they supposed to regulate all this? In fact, no competition should even see the light of day without clearly marked approvals and permission from the board?

    Too sad, and with the wave that has swept the nation that everyone wants a quick fix to everything the organizers will keep grinning to the banks *sob*
