Posted by kumar on 3/20/2023 7:21:05 am

yesterday i received a call from +965 66776070. initially, an automated voice was speaking in arabic and then in english, saying that my atm and civil id has been blocked by the moi and an officer will connect with me shortly. i realized its spam and was careful not to furnish any details. just to frustrate the so called ''officer'', who was asking for my civil id details, i asked him to show some sort of proof that he is from the moi. he said "wait i ll call you form the ministry landline" and hung up, never called again.

what i understood from this is :
1. the ''officer'' is some pakistani guy, trying hard to copy the arabic accent and speak like a kuwait official. but unfortunately, his natural slang dint help him there.
2. two days back, i had contacted ooreedo customer service regarding an issue, where i had furnished my civil id details and phone no. the customer service rep at ooreedoo was a pakistani as well. 2 days later, i get this spam call.
3. two months back, i had contacted ooreedoo customer service and again, 2 days later i get this spam call.

my question is, is these customer service guys / contracted agency is somewhat related to this spam group? because, these customer service guys are the ones who are totally accessible to all our info such and civil id and mobile no. what if they are all linked?
does someone using stc / viva experienced the same issue?

can a formal complaint be lodged to the ooreedo management to have a look into this issue ?

TOPIC : about "ISSUE" V/S "NON ISSUES" !!!

Posted by bk on 3/16/2023 10:39:10 am

it''s about a trick to keep all the effective issues away!
so for example :
bill gates visit the india. he met various key people by a special privilege,
so far this privilege was never possible for anybody else, never for any foreigner.
so what the "issue" here : nothing, because bill gates is businessman and for the sake of business (corporate-bushiness) he has been given special privilege.
so what the "non issue" :
bill gates has his trait, known throughout the world,
the way he acted during his recent visit is demoralizing the sovereignty of india
bill gates has insulted the india. "bill gates ne desh ka apmaan kiya"

so, the topic for voters could be :
(1) bill gates has insulted india or not?
(2) bill gates had demoralized the sovereignty of india or not?

but in reality, both above two is non-issue for the people of india.
the issue : how india can become better in education, health, infrastructure, equality.

( note: bill gates is looking for his own benefits, he is not at all interested in better education, health, infrastructure, equality for the people of india )
