I am using vodaphone Sim, VAS has been activated in my cell number..
Their actual funda to cheat customer is that….they used redirection techniques for example if we are visiting any site, they use click code to redirect us from that page to VAS activation page and then they start VAS without getting confirmation from customer…. Near abt 150 RS rental charges has been applied to their customer…. Please help us from this.
