    And, I thought Warid is backed up by world’s most strong financers. I wonder If Sheikhs and Singaporean owners of Warid’s new image.

    I guess, this is beginning of the end of Warid Telecom. And the actual owners ( arab sheikhs ) may not even be aware of whats happening to their company and their reputation in Pakistan.
    Apart from this advertising vendor, we other vendors are also in same deep problem. Our payments are stuck for many months, and we see no sign of our recoveries.
    I hope the learned Court takes a SUO-MOTO decision, and orders Warid Telecom to clear all dues of we all vendors.

    Hey i know that a lot of vendors have suffered at the hands of Warid, some big companies, but many small companies that cannot afford what Warid has done to them. SOmeone must take a stand against all this. Read the website Apnatime.com. This guy is saying that Warid Marketing team were involved in a big scam last year. I say anyone or any vendor that has suffered at the hands of Warid, please post your telephone numbers, or email addresses on porpakistani.com. Lets unite and do something about it. Maybe the honourable courts will take the matter seriously this way.Lets start by posting details straight away.

    What a shame for Warid Telecom, I heard the owners of Bank Al Falah and Warid – Wateen are the same people, Its a family thing going on here. They have pathetic customer service. Another Arab/Pakistani slave who brings investment from UAE and cant handle it.
