The state Chairman, Mobile Phone Elite Technicians of Kebbi state, Malam Isyaku Garba said there is a fake 9mobile, formally Etisalat agent going around Birnin kebbi metropolis defrauding unsuspecting residents in the guise of Data promo on 9mobile SIM cards.
Isyaku sai “ This guy came to Taushi Plaza located at Ahmadu Bello way Birnin kebbi at about 5pm on Monday 17/6/2019, he went shop to shop showcasing bundles of rapped 9mobile SIM cards. According to him, the Data promo is for N1.500 for 5gb and N2.500 for 11gb, that is valid for 30 days even without applying any code. He said the data is automatic upon activation of the sim card, which he applied some tricks to show that the data is actually there upon request. But thereafter, the whole thing disappears”.
“After several complain, I went to 9mobile office at OASIS, opposite new CBN, but official staff told me the guy who simply gave his name as THOMAS with a phone number 08173317160 is not their staff in Kebbi office, and added that 9mobile is currently not doing any data promo in Kebbi state”.
“ It is in the light of this that I want to heartily pass this information to our good people, to avoid being victims of this guy who is about 5.7ft tall, dark skinned with a shrill voice, he dressed in complete 9mobile black T-shirt, black trouser, he was holding a black 9mobile leather file jacket”.
According to Malam Isyaku, the mobile phone line 08173317160 given by the alleged fake agent worked on Monday, but refused to go through, as all incoming calls were diverted to out of reach destination by Tuesday 18.
