    Do you think your method is full proof?
    Many a times, I have received messages after deduction of certain amount from my account.
    For example:On May 14, 2014, I received a message from 57171 saying Dear subscriber, you are charged Rs 30 for service WALLPAPER30 OF RENEWAL DATE 11-05-2014. For desubscribe, send SMS STOP to 57171.

    When I called to 1503, they gave me some vague answer and said we are directing you to concerned person…and the advertisement went on till I got fed up and stopped it.

    I made a complaint to BSNL through email, I got the message, your problem is resolved.

    Again yesterday, I got a similar SMS, this time asking me that deduction will be made on 13.6.2014.

    And the story wil go on….

    This sort of nuisance have started after BSNL transferred the job to some private service provider.

    Anyone listening?????
