Mobile fraud in Spain
If you travel to Spain for holiday be careful with your contacts with the operators.
I took a prepaid mobile connection with internet 2.50 per day when used, calls
within Spain 0.08 €/min and 1000 SMS/month.
In about 30 seconds their system sent 6 SMS to some Romanian number, each
charged 0,73€ + automatic SMS (the F-Secure security feature) to a given nomber,
which was OK,
Then I began receiving SMS messages in sequencies altogether about
70 (yes- seventy).
In three minutes I could kiss goodbye to my 20€.
This looked like a genuine YUR MOBILE fraud.
Very efficient indeed!
This was a "respectable" operator, operating in France, England and Spain.
The girls, two of them, spoke only spanish.
I managed later to get a listing of my "calls". That was clearly a mistake - they
were rather nervous of the whole business...
If you travel there the best would be to go to a cafe ask for a WIFI-connection,
that they have almost everywhere. - and it'ss free!
