Mobile connection / Fraud

1 United Arab Emirates Review updated:

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.

    Mobile connection - Rejection of sim card

    The cell phone connection subscribed by my wife Sunita Mishra No. 9938880632 has been shown rejection of SIM card before few days. When I contacted the local AIRTEL office they told me to produce document and pay Rs. 25.00. I paid the amount and produced the required documents and obtained the new sim card. They informed that it will be activated by yesterday night. But it has not been activated yet.
    Further rejection of sim so often is a big harassement for people using cell phone. This has become a common problem with AIRTEL network only.I got to know that many customers of our locality have sufferring with same problem.Is this a nasty business policy to harrass people and earning money inselling sim cards at the cost of giving trouble to customers in delaying their right to get connected.
    I find in near future customers are bound to take other network connection .
    Hope remedial steps may be taken. Thanks.
