    Exclamation Shabox is stealing money from mobile users.

    tl;dr Summary: Shabox is turning on subscription to their lame services without my input or confirmation and charging money for it. And grameenphone (in my case) is letting them, without any confirmation from me.
    This August, I suddenly recieved a message from the number 006624 stating something like "ClubZED service is on". I didn't think it mattered because GP sends various advertising and annoying messages everyday. But after two weeks when I recharged 50tk and few minutes later found there is only 10tk left, I sent the message "STOP CZ" according to the message's instruction and stopped the service.

    Then, two days ago, I got another message. This time it was SHABOX Puzzle service. It's taking 2 TK/day to send me some lame messages. This time the messages are coming from 006624 and 026624 and don't even have instructions to stop it.

    When I mentioned about it on a discussion with my friends, couple of them mentioned they have faced this issue too.

    Even if I first ignore the fact that they are turning on services and charging me for it without my permission, I may be able to notice them and and turn them off. But I don't think older people like my parents would know anything about it and keep losing money to these frauds.

    I'll go to GPC to sort this out. But I'm concerned that other peoples are getting ripped off too. This should be punishable by law.
