    NCC alerts Nigerians on fake adverts of Davido’s airtime, data giveaway

    NCC
    The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has warned Nigerians about a fake Davido’s airtime and data giveaway advertisement that has surfaced on social media.

    Dr Ikechukwu Adinde, NCC’s Director of Public Affairs, made the announcement on Tuesday in Abuja.

    Adinde stated that a bunch of con artists had published an advertisement titled “Davido Airtime and Data Giveaway.”

    He stated that the viral advertisement claimed Davido was giving away free N5,000 airtime and 10GB of internet data across all networks to celebrate his birthday.

    He said that the NCC uncovered a purportedly syndicated gang on the prowl to scam unwary members of the public while conducting online social listening.

    According to Adinde, the fraudsters took advantage of the kindness of David Adeleke, also known as Davido, and affected millions of Nigerian telecom customers.

    “The Nigerian-American music star, songwriter and producer recently announced he would donate N250 million to various orphanage homes across Nigeria.

    “In the advertorial, the general public was urged to hurry and get the gift by clicking on the links that supposedly redirect them to network sites, where they would be credited with airtime and data. This is a scam.

    “The NCC wishes to advise our teeming telecom consumers to have nothing to do with the advert or any similar bogus enticements.

    “The adverts are what they are, social engineering rip-offs designed to get people’s Mobile Station Integrated Services Digital Network (MSISDN) and other information that fraudsters can use later to defraud unsuspecting telecom consumers and members of the public,” he said.

    “This number is unique and identifies subscribers/owners in a GSM or other mobile networks.

    “Therefore, it suffices to state that any unscrupulous person or unethical hacker can use the number and attendant protocol to undermine the privacy of the real owners of the number through identity theft and other scams.

    “The NCC, therefore, reiterates its earlier warning to telecom consumers to be cautious and not to let their guards down. If a promo or an offer seems too good to be true, then it is likely untrue.”

    Adinde stated that the commission will not rest on its laurels in providing telecom consumers with the necessary information and education to safeguard them from cybercriminals intent on using telecom platforms to commit fraud.
