The Guardian has a great piece on how the rise of Mobile phones in Africa is effecting change. The latest Peer-2-Peer mobile payment scam is that you buy a pre-paid scratch card and text the code so that some one else can use the credit!
This allows for users to pay "taxes" without having to meet someone face-to-face.
Just wonder how long it will be before the 419ers send my a text message offering me millions via pre-paided credits?
Another reason why SIMPAY was a good idea and the Networks should get on with making M-commerce work, guess I should have another coffee with the GSM Association guys and see if they might make something happen.
