Two years ago I posted how someone through a phone call attempted to scam me pretending I won 20,000 KD. Apparently this scam is still going strong, and it’s not just ooredoo telecom, Zain impersonators are calling everyone too. The idea of the scam is to get you to believe you won, then they ask you to send prepaid CashU codes or prepaid top-up codes then disappear.
I get a comment on my scam post around once a month with someone saying someone tried it on them too, I’m so glad I got to reassure a lot of people that it’s fake and avoided falling for it. Apparently the scam has been going for a good 5 years and the only reason it’s still going is because it’s working, some people fall for it. So spread awareness and make sure vulnerable people don’t get taken advantage of.
