WHY WAS MY BULK SMS ACCOUNT SUSPENDED ?
The major reason why your bulk SMS account might be suspended has to do with the content of a sender ID you’re trying to use to send a message and/or the content or body of that message. When you use a sender ID that is not acceptable by network operators and that is scamming, the system at SmartSMSSolutions recognizes this and suspends the account. The same also applies in the content of the message.
As an example, one of the messages that potential scammers has tried to send from the platform, warranting a suspension of their bulk SMS account is this: SENDER ID: Firstbank, MESSAGE CONTENT: ‘Your Acct 30XXXXX006 Has Been Credited with NGN450,000,00 On 04-MAY-2015 12:41:39 By (NAME).
It is very obvious that the above message is a scam message. Financial institutions, government agencies and some private organizations have their private bulk SMS platforms which they use to send their alerts and messages. Once you send any message with such organizations as sender ID or the content of the message looks scam-like, the system here has been optimized to detect such and suspend the sender’s bulk SMS account.
In a bid to control this more and also avoid situations where you send messages and they don’t get delivered by the network operators, at SmartSMSSolutions we have a filtering system where we try as much as possible to get the list of these unacceptable words and word combination, and whenever you want to send a message that contains them, you are warned about their presence at the point of sending. See here list of words and word combinations not allowed as sender ID and list of words and word combinations not allowed in the content of a message.
