Reliance Jio has turned into a casualty of deception once again, activated by its disputable information arrange for which offers free boundless access to high-speed 4G data, HD voice call, HD video call, SMS, and Jio applications. A message guaranteeing that Jio clients can upgrade voice call and Internet administrations till December 31, 2017, has been generally coursed on the online networking yet tragically, there isn’t a particle of truth about it.
It came a couple of months after gossipy titbits spread like out of control fire on Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp that a Reliance Jio client got a bill of Rs 27,718 for utilising 554 GB. The fake bill additionally expressed that Reliance Jio clients would be charged Rs 1,100 in the event generally instalment. It was scarcely a month after the organisation declared free 4G information benefit when the lie began yet individuals still spread it via social media.
This is what the hoax message reads: “Notice for all Customers Kindly Upgrade your Jio Internet and call services before 12:00/am tonight. We have extended Jio Till 31st December 2017 Otherwise you will not be able to use Jio Internet and calling services And Your Jio Sim might be deactivated. So Upgrade right now and You can surf upto Unlimited Internet till 31st December 2017.”
All things considered, one can easily make out that the message is fake, as Jio Team won’t make such grammatical mistakes. The due date to update the administrations is 12.00 am however there is no say of date while the connection given in the content is not legitimate.
Then, Reliance Industries has expanded its offer for a boundless access to rapid 4G information, HD voice call, HD video call, SMS, and Jio applications till March 31, 2017, with a little change, offering 1GB of information at 4G speed for each day rather than 4GB offered before. Web speed drops to 128kbps after a limit is crossed. Reliance Jio clients can likewise keep on having the advantage from April to June (three) months at just Rs 100.
The latest scam doing the rounds on social media is a trick to get daily 10GB 4G limit on your Reliance Jio connection. But beware, its a hoax that potentially puts your data at risk. The trick involves visiting an unsecured website upgrade-jio4g.ml where you are required to select your state, enter your mobile number and email address, followed by downloading an app in the second step.
The problem here – the URL itself is a fake one. After putting all your details, it asks you to share with at least 10 friends and groups to upgrade Jio service, after which it will ask you to download an app. Even the bottom of the page has terms and conditions mentioning ‘Go4G is not affiliated with Reliance orJio in any way.’ Those falling prey to this hoax are not only putting their information at risk, but also sharing with friends and groups, and thus putting their data in danger too.
