Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has warned all mobile users not to reply to the international SMS, which informs that they have won big financial awards provided by one of the international mobile manufacturers. TRA has urged mobile users not to respond to any of the numbers stated in such SMS for receiving the financial awards. In a statement issued here yesterday, TRA said it has received a number of complaints from mobile users saying that they have received international SMS informing them that they have won huge funds and urge them to call certain international numbers to receive the same. “Any message saying that you have won £500,000 is a false message and one of the fraud methods by suspected foreign organisations,” the TRA statement added. To avoid being a victim of such fraud, TRA called upon all mobile users not to answer such messages or reveal their personal information to them.
