May not be a big deal again, given name and number database is widespread. But this was a personalized message that read I owed the lender (whom I never had a relationship with) and I could now make a payment with their app.
Digging up on I found anti competitive concerns from other telemarketers over the new blockchain system, because the blockchain solution provider who licenses the compliance solution to 3 of 4 major telcos, also has interest in telemarketing and other telemarketers have moved to Delhi HC regarding it.
What is not being spoken off here is - the privacy of users in the existing blockchain system if all SMS of 3 / 4 telcos pass through one entity’s infrastructure - Even if its comparing templates to messages and matching with consumer preferences. The lack of a detailed technology infrastructure architecture prevents anyone to do a privacy impact assessment of the solution.
