Woman left furious over unsolicited gambling text message
A 3AW listener is fuming after receiving an unsolicited SMS from Sportsbet.
Maxine Fonovic told Tony Jones she has no idea where the betting agency got her number from.
“I certainly don’t subscribe to any betting agencies,” Maxine said.
“I could have been a minor or a reformed gambling addict. They don’t know.”
Maxine said the text made it more difficult than it should have been to opt out of receiving future messages.
Sportsbet has apologised for any inconvenience caused to recipients of its text message.
