Some Vodafone customers have been victims of fraudulent acts after giving out their M-PAiSA account details to unknown callers.

This has been highlighted by Vodafone who are urging people that under no circumstances, should M-PAISA users disclose their account PIN or OTP over the phone or in-person to anyone whatsoever.

They say some M-PAiSA customers have lately been receiving calls from unknown persons claiming to be Vodafone staff asking for their M-PAiSA account details.

Vodafone further says some people have also been contacted through social media such as Facebook for customers to message them their account details in order to claim prizes or collect their financial rewards.

They add that no one from Vodafone including its customer care team will ever ask people for their M-PAiSA account PIN or one-time password either over the phone or through text message and email. The PIN must always remain a secret to the account holder.

Vodafone says if you disclose your PIN to anyone, you risk losing your account balance at your own peril.
