Vodafone Fiji wishes to inform members of the public – to be vigilant regarding incoming international calls on their mobile phones, from unknown international numbers.
The advice comes after some mobile numbers started getting missed call alerts on their mobile phones, from unknown international numbers.
Shailendra Prasad, Acting Chief Marketing Officer of Vodafone Fiji said – some of these calls maybe coming from scam operators, based in other countries with an intention to defraud customers.
He said if one gets such calls from unknown international numbers, to either ignore them or report them to Vodafone, so they can ascertain the authenticity of the calls, and take appropriate action.
Network operators around the world have an understanding and bilateral agreements, to pass calls from one network to another, to facilitate easier communications around the world.
Vodafone does not screen every call on their network, to determine whether a call is genuine or made from scam operators.
This would be prying into the private conversation of two parties, and a breach of customer confidentiality and privacy, which we hold in very high regard.
