the Public WiFi provider “Purple” pranked users into signing what turned out to be very odd terms and conditions in order to access the free WiFi!
The user may be be required, at Purple’s discretion, to carry out 1,000 hours of community service.
This may include the following: Cleansing local parks of animal waste.
Providing hugs to stray cats and dogs.
Manually relieving sewer blockages.
Cleaning portable lavatories at local festivals and events.
Painting snail shells to brighten up their existence.
Scraping chewing gum off the streets.
“Purple” did this to show the consumer’s lack of awareness when it comes to agreeing to terms online.
Surprisingly only ONE person actually noticed in the two weeks they had the spoof terms and conditions posted. The good news is Purple is more prankster than anything and it is not going to enforce any of these things, but it does think that people should learn a lesson from the experience.
READ THE FINE PRINT PEOPLE!
