Something to do with income and expenditure. It's so clearly coming from the fking government, it's an absolute outrage. I've now received ten of the bloody things.

And the mystery is solved and the culprit is: The Ministry of Economy


Text messages praising the benefits of an income and expenditure survey are part of a drive to encourage participation in the UAE-wide initiative, according to the Ministry of Economy.

Can I suggest, in the spirit of protest against this appalling spamming, that everybody refuses to cooperate?

Let's try to make the HHIE even more of a disaster than tedad (that's some challenge, I know, but I'm sure it can be done).

Remove the last digit from your income and add 2 zeroes to your expense. That'll teach em

So you're income will now look like AED 5618 and expenses AED2150000
