The way our mobile networks push out ads these days can be so annoying and sometime frustrating. They’ve graduated from sending multiple texts per day to spam calls. These robocalls initially came from funny looking 5-digit numbers. Now, (probably because of people rejecting or blocking their calls) they’ve migrated to using numbers we confuse to be personal phone numbers.
MTN has started sending out these pop-up adverts to people. If you’re not observant, you mistakenly press “OK” and you’re taken. Yes, just like that. The adverts come in the form of these screen shot above. See another tweet below form @JesseOguns.

It’s best you be cautious not to fall into this mess, because most times it’s hell to unsubscribe from such plans. Stay alert.
