Your BANK Account could be Emptied without an Alert. Dear All,Please let's be very careful. There is a new HIGH TECH FRAUD in town called the SIM SWAP FRAUD.
We have to be smart because some people are already VICTIMS.
How does it work?
1.A new fraud called SIM SWAP has started.Your phone network will momentarily go blind /zero (No Signal / Zero Bars) and after a while a call will come through.
2.then after someone will call you and tell you that he is calling from (your network company) depending on the network you are using and that there is a problem in your mobile network.
3 He will start instructing you to follow in other to fix the network for you. It will get to a point where he will ask you to press 1 on your phone to get the network back. Please at this point don't obey any instructions from to person again.
In fact at that point if possible off the phone or put it at airplane mode for about 30seconds and on it back. That will help your account to be disconnected from their system.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU PRESS 1 OR FURTHER CONTINUES TAKING INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE PERSON.
If you press 1, the network will disappear suddenly and almost completely go blind again (Zero Bars) and by that action, your phone is HACKED.Within a second they will empty your bank account and you won't even receive any alert.
Then after It will appear as if your line is without Network meanwhile your SIM has been SWAPPED.
The danger here is that you will not get any alert of any transactions or so ever on your account but there was transaction which empty your account.
Please we have to be very seriouse about this especially those of us doing USSD Banking and Mobile Banking.
Please forward to your contacts, loved ones,and friends you might save someone by sharing this. The fraud is increasing day by day.
