Everybody, 

Few days ago, I received an SMS from #VODAFONE , saying "Play & Win QR 100,000 in cash monthly. To participate in premium contest SMS WIN to 97711 for QR 5 and for a chance to win QR 10,000 in cash, SMS FREE to 97710."

It suggests that this is a one time payment, and note that nowhere in the SMS it mentions that it will be deducted automatically, DAILY.  

Guys, silly me, I joined, and now I cannot sign out from that bloody CONTEST..

The Vodafome web site doesn't mention anything about that, and there is nothing on the web too. 

GUYS , HELP

You can opt out by sending a free SMS with the keyword STOP to 97710 at any time.

It happened with me some years back. I reported the matter to Ooredoo at one of their branches. They blocked that number. That was it.
