Get Money, Spend Money, No Money
I personally dont have a problem with MTC (Mobile Telecommunications) coming up with a way to draw people to buying airtime as a means to promote their brand, but in the end it somehow feels as if its some kind of con..How do tell people to buy airtime for $10 and get $30 worth of airtime,and then have the audacity to threaten the very same people on that last day, that if they dont use their airtime before midnight, they stand a good 100% chance of forfeiting it,leaving them with the the initial $10..Its like telling people that there's a special in the shop. buy a g-string and get two for free..aww! mam, but wait you can wear the two right now(together) because if you dont by the end of the promotion tonight,if you havent used them yet we'll steal them back from you..
So what are people suppose to do? They end up calling people and talking dumm sh*t..on the same network that people with real emergencies have a problem getting through on.
So not only was the service a con, it was also an inconvinience to those who had had emergencies during the course of the whole "gimmick/publicity stunt" or whatever you wanna call it.
MTC Never learns from their mistakes, and i'm starting to wonder why, everytime they try this Sh*t the network becomes unreachable/hard to get through on.
I'm not saying that MTC had a bad idea..but what i'm suggesting is that next time, before doing such promos they should make sure their network can sustain large quantities of data transferred through from one point to another..and they should not seduce clients and then con them..its not fair!!Who knows how much money they made off of this, and to think they could have left people with their little free airtime as a token of appreciation,but what do they do? spit in the face of their customers...aarrgh!! damn!! never even happened in the bible for god's sake..
people had money..spent money...now there's no money..they looking like dummies...
