New scam offers fake Dh100 credit for UAE National Day


DUBAI – Mobile phone users in the UAE have been warned about a fresh scam offering fake Dh100 in free credit as part of National Day celebrations.

The scam tricks residents into choosing “du” as their preferred telecom provider and asks victims to input their mobile number to join the competition.

According to telecommunications provider du, they are running no such competition, and that any offer will only be announced on their official social media accounts.

Meanwhile, the Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (TRA) warned the public against clicking the links in anonymous messages about prizes.

The Dubai Police also reiterated a warning against dealing with anonymous callers, saying that these are likely to be scammers after their personal data. ICA/Expat Media
