And one final person with maximum number of points will win 1Kg gold prize.

Complications:

No doubt, offer is a big one – and it all seems very pleasant till here. But the problem is that Telenor is constantly luring (spamming) it’s customers by sending misleading text messages. One such message is as following:

Apka number 03xxxxxxxx 10g sona rozana, 25g sona/Itwar aur 1KILO Sonay ke liye muntakhib hogya hai! Abhi 7775 par blank SMS bhejein! Rs. 8+t/SMS

It is unclear if this message was sent to selected Telenor customers or it was broadcasted over the entire network. We can identify few of those numbers if Telenor want to carry out an internal inquiry to find out the responsible for sending such misleading text messages to their customers.

It is also unclear that how much money Telenor has generated through the campaign.
