Mobile Carrier Fined For Spamming Competitor's Subscribers

from the pure-stupidity dept

You would think that a mobile carrier would be sensitive to the concept of mobile spam. However, it appears that many are still quite clueless. While there have been quite a few cases of carriers accused of text message spamming their own customers, in Denmark, it appears that German mobile operator Debitel sent SMS spam to subscribers of competitor Telmore trying to get them to switch providers. Beyond getting fined for the SMS spam, one would hope that this stunt would have the opposite of the intended effect, and would make many people stay away from the spamming operator.
