@Philly08

Thanks for the post and I can confirm that this is a legitimate offer. Apologies, it took a while to confirm but it's all good.

Cheers

Mike

@Philly08

 

Thanks for raising, will check on that, doesn't match any current offers and that phone number looks questionable.

I received this text from ( +64 21010038225) last Friday and wondered if it's a scam:

 

Vodafone:

Hi there, as a loyal customer of Vodafone we have reviewed your prepaid account and have an exclusive Vodafone loyalty offer! It includes 200 mins to landlines & mobiles (NZ & AUS) & 1GB data and extra 500 MB data bonus for first 12 months  + Unlimited texts (NZ & AUS) + 1 NZ Best Mate Number all for just $24.99 per month open term (cancel anytime, no contraracts). If you are interested reply "YES" or call 0800 434 448 (ext 238) between 8.30am-5pm.

 

I replied YES but nothing changed on 'My Vodafone' then this morning I got another text from another number ( +64 21010038226) saying:

 

Vodafone: 

Hi, I just tried to call you in regards to a plan I mentioed earlier. Unfortunately I have been unable to reach you. Is there perhaps a more suitable time between 8.30am-4.45pm I could try call you again? Thanks Payal

 

 

Regards Philly
