It’s 2009. And people are still forwarding emails and SMSes hoping to win something. Hello?!
1. It’s funny how boh liao people who initiate SMS hoaxes usually have bad grammar. 60 billion, not 60 billions. 10 people, not 10 person.
2. Under the Anti Spam Act (or whatever it’s called), Singapore companies are required to insert < ADV > when initiating mass messaging.
3. No self respecting corporation the size of these telcos will have smileys in their messages. Emoticons are reserved for casual messaging, and should not find their way into formal communication channels. If they do, it’s time to send the PR folks packing.
