Following a series of complaints from consumers and further to ex officio controls, the National Telecommunications and Post Commission (EETT) decided to revoke the operating license of “Dynamic Communication and Technology Limited” (DC & T. Ltd) for serious and repeated breaches of the Code of Practice for Premium Rate Services (PRS), the Regulation for the provision of services under General Authorization License as well as consumer protection legislation. In this context, EETT revoked the company’s rights of use for the numbers 54787 and 54380 from which short messages via mobile phones (sms) of increased rate were sent to the consumers. The violations included: the distribution of short messages (sms) to consumers’ mobile phones of Premium Rate Services, such as online dating, without the consumers’ consent, previous registration to the service, or information of any kind; the deception of consumers through the imposition of increased and arbitrary charges without prior information about the service provided and the cost for it; the distribution of misleading messages urging consumers to constantly send short messages via mobile phones of increased rate; failure to satisfy consumer demands for removal of their contact information from the company’s registry; consumer inability to communicate with the company’s call center.
