Bogus chain SMS: ‘Forward this message and get outgoing calls worth $49’

STOMPer Aaron wonders if this SMS he received is true. According to the message, the user will enjoy $49 of free outgoing calls if he or she forwards this message to 10 other people.

The message explains that this is in celebration of the three telcos in Singapore reaching a total of 60 billion local messages sent.

Says this STOMPer:

“There is a SMS going around.

“Content of SMS:

Today is the day when SingTel, M1 and Starhub celebrate the mark of Singaporeans sending a total of 60 billions local messages. Forward this msg to 10 person and you will have $49 of outgoing calls free!! After so, you may check your phone bill to verify.🙂

“Is there any truth or verification to this sms?

“Or is this just a hoax started by someone?”

Update:
STOMP spoke to a Singtel spokesperson and she has confirmed the SMS to be a hoax:
“We confirm that the SMS did not originate from M1, SingTel or StarHub and that no such marketing activity has been launched. Customers who receive this hoax SMS should simply ignore it.”
