Due to considerable increase of mobile fraud cases Ucell warns all subscribers to be cautious in order to avoid financial losses.

The following schemes are among the most common types of mobile fraud resulting in unauthorized write-off of money from personal subscriber account:

  • Subscriber receives an SMS notification about a prize winning and a request to follow certain instructions.
  • Subscriber receives an SMS notification about personal bank card account blocking and a request to make a call and follow certain instructions.
  • Fraudster calls subscriber on behalf of service provider company which tests any service/equipment. Then fraudster asks subscriber to make a call or follow other instructions.
  • Subscriber receives an SMS notification with a request to send another SMS to a short number for unlocking social media account.
  • Subscriber receives an MMS or SMS notification from unknown number containing active links.
  • Subscriber receives a call from unknown number (most often foreign number). At the answer to this call, connection suddenly breaks and subscriber receives an SMS notification from unknown number with a request to call back. When subscriber dials this number, answerphone responds and tries to hold subscriber on the line as long as possible while fraudster withdraws money from subscriber’s personal account.

Attention! If you faced one of the abovementioned schemes, you could be a fraud victim. In order to prevent mobile fraud consequences, please, adhere to the following precautionary measures:

  • Don’t rush to follow instructions and requests of strangers;
  • Don’t trust doubtful sources;
