A new video that has been published online has been going viral as a South African man explains how to buy one gigabyte of Data for one rand. This seems too good to be true, and I wanted to see if it was real. Here's how he did it, and whether you should do it or not.
What he said :
In the video, which you can watch by clicking the link below, the man explains how to buy one gigabyte of data for one rand. He first instructs his users to go to the app store and download the Vodapay application. This next part is the part I don't trust as he instructs people to register an account and login. After which he says to click on prepaid and buy one gigabyte of data. However, while looking at the process he showed on video, I found something odd. To watch the video click the link below, or keep reading.
The things you need to notice :
The first thing I noticed is that he used a bank account to pay for the data, which is always a red flag, Because you shouldn't put your bank details into application or website unless you full trust it. The second thing I noticed is much more damning, it's that the data he bought was only valid for one day, the day he bought it. While it's possible to use a gigabyte of data in a day. Most people won't. So should you do this.
What I think :
Personally I don't see the value in buying a single gigabyte of data just for one day, and this may be only a one time offer. So setting up the application and giving it your bank details doesn't seem worth it.
What do you think, would you do it, tell me in the comments section and follow for more news as it happens.
