If you see even now we are shown add's of Asain Paints where they ask to type GUIDE and send an SMS to 56161 to receive a free copy. I have sent such SMS totally five times where I have also received call from their customer care two times asking my address, permission to call and market their products in future e.t.c., but am still waiting for the copy. I had first sent an SMS in month of September, In October I had also received an email.
When we send an SMS we get charged Rs.5.00 so in case if there are hundred's of customers like me who send an SMS and never get a copy imagine the rate of FRAUD. If they cant deliver as said in the add they should return the amount charged and STOP THE ADD.
I don't know if I will get a response but I surely hope that other people are aware about such scams and that too from company's like such whos brand names we trust and hardly put a finger on.
Thanks & Regards,
