Mobile connection / Fraud
I know you would probably think that having so muc awareness in media regarding this scam, there would not be any more victims!!
There still are. my husband was one on 19th Apr 2012. He received a call from [protected]. The Modus Oprandi is always the same. When we came to Dubai we head about the rafles and lucky draw here, so the call seemed quite convincing. He sent pins to coupons worth over 11000 aed. I dont know how it happened, but he could just not hang up. My intension here is not to say that over so many years Etisalat is not able to irradicate ths whole sca, cause I know that would be impossible. The awareness campaigns should still be on, with messages from new victims. And the best thing is to restrict the top up limit per user to 200-500 aed. Why is t tha noteven the sales agent warns you that or enquires thereason s to why you are puchasing all these high value coupons? Please have system in place not only to make the consumer aware, but also to protect the ones that fall prey by limiting their losses and warning them in time that they might be prey to a scam.
