[1: 367 of 10,000] Beware: Pretending As Etisalat

In Reference on September 17, 2011 at 10:13 PM

To people who live in UAE, beware if you receive a call from this mobile number:

+971509521973 / (050) 952-1973 / 0509521973

He called me and this was the conversation:

Caller: Good afternoon ma’am.

Yor: Good afternoon.

Caller: I am from Etisalat. Congratulations! You won 500,000.00 Dirhams!!! (Sounds enthusiastic.)

Yor: Ok (…in a not buying it tone.)

Caller: Where are you from?

Yor: If you’re from Etisalat you should have my details.

Caller: (Ignoring my snotty tone…) What is your name madam?

Yor: If you’re from Etisalat you should have my details.

Caller: (End the call by cutting the line without saying good bye.)

I guess he didn’t like my tone and my answers. I reported the number to Etisalat and I am not sure what will they do with the information. I didn’t believe him because if he is really from Etisalat it wouldn’t be a regular number calling me but an automatic company name that says Etisalat on my phone screen especially that I am an Etisalat subscriber. Plus a family friend of ours also received a similar call and she got until the perpetrator asked for money worth 1,500.00 dirhams to get the prize (not a good sweepstakes at all).

It would have been nice if I did win a half million dirhams huh!
