ALL promotions, competitions or game shows by corporate companies that state contestants with the highest number of votes will advance are scams. They already know who the finalists will be.
Do not part take in these SMS competitions. They are upper class beggars. Except these companies sell you nothing.
I don’t even have to mention after the late night porn was cut from our only free TV channel they had to find something to keep the people busy. They then had the silliest gambling game shows appear on TV. Wonder how many parents phone bills got un-affordable. Some of the parents incurred the costs themselves other times kids have stolen their parents phone and are subscribing to many VAS services.
The game show offers R5000 prize money the answer is so simple everybody enters. R7 to R15 a SMS.
The hostess then tramples around repeating the same mindless words over and over. Finally a caller phones in. I swear the lines are crossed because sometimes when these contestants give their answer it’s totally unrelated.
Seriously I was surprised they were able to operate a telephone. I also suspect that some of the contestants that phone in are employees of the game show. Lets call them actors.
All just a money making scam to SMS answers or subject you to their advertisements.
