U Mobile IDD Bonanza with cash prizes

U Mobile’s IDD Bonanza is back and this time it offers cash prizes for lucky high spending users. From now until the end of the year, the highest spender for selected IDD Bonanza countries will be rewarded with RM18,888 cash.

There’s also monthly prizes of RM1,888 for the highest spender for each respective month. In addition, they are giving RM50 free airtime for every 10th entry for the first 100 users that spend RM10 on IDD Bonanza calls. If you win the RM50 airtime, RM25 will be credited in 2 separate following months. The monthly “2nd” prize mechanics is a little bit confusing which requires some reading on the T&C to understand.

Who’s behind the

We found this viral website masking itself as a blog that is championing the cause against – of all things – cheap Internet.

The People Against Cheap Internet Konection or PACIK for short, is apparently an organisation that believes the Internet is evil because it causes Internet addiction. The founder and chairman of PACIK claims that the inspiration for the movement came after a close friend lost his arm from too much Internet.


If you believe in the cause, you can join PACIK fight against cheap Internet and Internet addiction.

It all sounds a bit too far-fetched to be true and most probably everything on the site/blog is fictional.

What we’re interested in is who made this site/blog and for what reason.
