While Reliance Jio 4G SIM is getting a lot of traction for the Welcome Offer that bundles free 4G data, calls and messages till the end of this year, the company is also in the headlines for scams related to it.
Lately, we saw a scam stating that the Reliance Jio SIM and LYF smartphone can be purchased at a meager amount of just Rs. 199. This fake news was getting circulated virally on WhatsApp. However, Reliance did not announce anything as such officially.
Now, there is another scam related to the Reliance Jio service, but this time is not about to the SIM card. This scam is about the Jio WiFi device. Take a look at more details of this scam and get to know how you can stay from falling prey to it.
Fake Jio WiFi website is making rounds
There is a fake Jio WiFi website that is making rounds all over the internet. Well, this website is identified to be fake as it doesn't have 'http' as its prefix to show that is a secure and genuine site.
Claims to offer the Jio WiFi device for free
The website claims to offer the Reliance Jio WiFi device for free. The device seen there is the JioFi wireless hotspot and it is claimed to arrive with the Jio 4G SIM as well.
Welcome Offer is applicable to this device too!
As per the listing, the Welcome Offer is also bundled with the Jio SIM card that comes with free calls, data , messages and app access until the end of this year.
Beware, this website is a scam
This website is definitely a scam as it asks for your personal details such as name, address, mobile number and email id. It also asks you to share the message on WhatsApp to get the coupon code. But, there is no guarantee that you will get the wireless hotspot device on doing so.
Always choose the official website
It is recommended that you always choose the official website to get whatever device you want. From the official Jio site, you can purchase the JioFi device and get a SIM card for it as well.
