Third Party Charges for SMS from Content Providers

by SuperUser on ‎09-01-2017 04:40 PM - edited on ‎25-02-2020 05:25 PM by Community Manager

Dear friends,


Having concerns on unauthorized content subscriptions? Having surprises on your monthly billing?


If you are subscribed to a third party Content Provider (CP) service that uses a 5-digit short code, you can unsubscribe from the service immediately by:

1) Replying STOP ALL to the SMS message or short code.


Some tips to be mindful when receiving SMSes from short codes:
• Read the SMS carefully before giving consent or opting in to the service.
    Typically the SMS will ask you to type YES or Y in reply to the short code to subscribe.

• Do not click on any links within the SMS as it might lead you to accidentally subscribing to a service.

• Do not subscribe to any services from any unfamiliar or suspicious SMSes.

• Do not click on any suspicious banners or links that indicate you have won a prize.

• Do not enter your mobile number on any unfamiliar or suspicious webpages.

• Do not enter your phone number if a page shows that “your phone has a virus” and asks for your phone number to clear it.

• Beware of ads that may lead you to phishing websites.

• Beware of installing third party apps other than from the official Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

• Beware of granting permissions to third party apps to send SMSes from your phone.


For preventive measures, our team has now enhanced the 3rd party content providers service by implementing double confirmation action (e.g. AOC – Advisory of Charges and TAC) to confirm consumer intent before purchasing mobile content.

To activate only genuine subscriptions, subscriber will receive a confirmation web link as the below. This web link will lead subscribers to a screen to key in the TAC code sent to your mobile number before confirmation of purchase(as per attached in figure below).




With this added feature, we hope our subscribers will have a better experience in the subscription of these services!


We at Digi do not condone the use of our 5-digit short code service by errant third party CPs who do not comply to MCMC’s mandatory standards for the provision of mobile content services.

Hi syaz15,


Upon checking, the service from  32638 has been successfully deactivated on 21/09/2017. We recommend you to be careful when browsing the internet. You may check which sites were you accessing when you got the SMS to avoid the incoming TAC SMS ya. Please refer to the link given to avoid third-party charges:http://goo.gl/3MPvNG

Hi Jamal_lah,


Langganan tersebut adalah perkhidmatan game yang bernama "GameStrike Tournament". Langganan ni perlu hantar TAC code untuk memberi akses servis pengaktifan. Anda boleh tulis SMS 'STOP TOURGAME' dan hantar semula ke 20000 untuk permohonan pembatalan ya. Pastikan nanti ada menerima SMS balas untuk makluman status pembatalan. 


Untuk mendapatkan maklumat tentang perkhidmatan ini, anda boleh hubungi Gamestrike, butiran adalah seperti di bawah:

Anyway,for this statement "Langganan ni perlu hantar TAC code untuk memberi akses servis pengaktifan." i didnt key in any TAC code, but it auto subscribe me  into this gamestrike and charge me.


After i terminate by sending STOP TOURGAME, it successfully terminate. The next day, auto renew my subscription.

Hi Digi,


Just ignore this kind of message?  

RM0.00(excl.GST):Your TAC for x5 service subscription is 3661 (expires in 2mins).Please ignore if you did not request. Info@ http://digi.my/TAC


Doesn't sound good for DIGI.It is very annoying to receive this kind of sms for around 5-10 times a day.

Can DIGI solve this problem?



And i knew Digi had successfully help me  permanently terminate the 20000 (gamestrike) subscription.

However, the charges cost for the ridiculous and unreasonable subscription are not removed from my Bill yet.

This is so unfair to me and other customers.


Very appreciate if Digi can remove this extra charges from my bill and block those annoying sms.


Thank you

Hi Nat19,


These type of services can be activated either via SMS, triggered by one of the applications downloaded/installed on your smart device or pop-up ad during web browsing. You have to be careful whenever you access the internet or third-party application. Do not click any promo or advertisement that pop-up on your device or you will be charged for the subscription.

Saya terima sms ini daripada  20000 pada  3/11/2017 .


RM0.00(excl.GST):Mocoplay.Success sub for RM5.00/wk.Auto renewal on 09.11.2017. Access http://my.mocoplay.com/signin Cancel http://tinyurl.com/ybd4m7jr



Sebaik saja saya sedar sms ini saya terus  menghubungi wakil digi menerusi Live Chat di aplikasi MyDigi.



Wakil digi tersebut memberitahu sudah cuba memberhentikan langganan servis  seperti sms di atas. Beliau juga memberitahu untuk menuntut kembali caj RM5 yang dikenakan pada saya.



Hari ini apabila saya menyemak jumlah bil terkini,  ternyata jumlah RM5 tersebut tetap dimasukkan ke dalam bil. Malah ianya dikira sekali dengan GST sebanyak RM0.30.


Saya telah dicaj untuk perkara yang saya tidak mahu.



Sila bertindak.

Recently, my bill for this number was charged rm15.90 for unauthorized transaction. For SMS which I never subscribe. This number only used for modem for my house. As far as I concerned, Digi are not going to take responsibility for the unauthorized transaction. So, I requesting Digi to make my credit limit to minimum as possible. If possible, please make my credit limit set to RM0.00. I always paid my bill on time. I never use this number for calls, sms, etc. Just for internet connection only. So I not required for any credit limit at all. Thanks

 This thread was started more than a year ago and Digi still hasn't made a change. They either don't care or they're getting a kickback from these third-party content providers.


Well, I've been getting messages from Mocoplay. I never heard of them before I started getting these SMS text messages, but a web search reveals that fraud and theft is their business model.


Another Digi site claims that Mocoplay (and many others) has been blocked at least since 17-03-2017, but that's obviously  not true.




I'm postpaid and, if my next bill has charges for services that I haven't agreed to, it will remain unpaid and I'll be switching providers.


The only way Digi will be motivated to take action on more than a case-by-case basis is if they lose business.

Untuk makluman saya  dicaj sebanyak 4.00  untuk  value added services  dari nombor 33980 pada bil bulanan.  setelah diperiksa pada bil,  ia muncul pada 14/1/2018. namun begitu setelah diperiksa  pada inbox mesej , saya tidak dapat apa-apa mesej  dari nombor  33980 pada hari tersebut. saya harap pihak DIGI dapat menyelesaikan  masalah ini. kerjasama dan maklumbalas  dari pihak  DIGI amat saya  hargai.
