How To Identify A Scam SMS

A few days ago, a customer called in complaining that he sent an sms that was not delivered and yet his account was charged more than the normal sms charge.

After investigating this we discovered that he sent out his sms with the 'MTN N' Sender ID.

Now here's what happens when you send your sms with this type of Sender ID:

  1. MTN blocks messages like this from third party gateways like ours and will not deliver it.
  2. We have configured our systems to heavily bill Sender IDs of this kind (as a deterrent to spammers and scammers) so we don't get blacklisted by the network operators as a Spam network.


What To Do When You Receive A Scam SMS

The Best Time To Send Your Sms


There is the saying, 'Timing is everything'. There are two important aspects of timing that you should pay attention to if you really want your SMS campaign to be successful.

First, open-ended messages are less successful than messages that have deals that expire. For instance, a text message like

Wow!! Check out our designers men's outfit such as Turkey Shirts, Stock Jeans & Polo, Italian Shoes etc @ Shop 123 Alaba Market. For inquiries, call 08181610450

is less likely to get better response than

Get 50% Off all purchases TODAY on any of our products (Jeans & Polo, Turkey Shirts, Italian Shoes etc) @ Shop 123 Alaba Market. For inquiries, call 08181610450.

Create the text of your SMS to portray that the deal “expires soon” or something similar.
