There is a new message that is floating across WhatsApp and other instant messaging Apps and even via text messages as well.

It claims that jio has achieved its target of 100 crore subscribers (1 billion) and to celebrate, it is offering Rs 448 recharge free.

This is the message

The text message has a link that takes people to a website that looks like a 5-year-old kid has designed it.

It asks you for your first name your last name, and the operator name, which is pre-selected as Jio.

When you submit it ask you for sending the message to at least five of your WhatsApp contacts to validate the offer of recharge of Rs 448.

It’s a fake message thats aims to collect name and number of people.

The link has been shortened by bit.ly a URL shortener service since it’s a public link, we can view the stats for it.

The link was created on 28th August and has been clicked over 1.5 million times as of 29th August.

According to a report by livemint.com jio has got a subscriber base of 315 million as of June 2019, which is 31.5 Crore subscribers.

Also, this report by statista.com shows that there are around 813 million mobile users in India as of 2019.

Can it harm you are still your data on your mobile in any way?

While it is a bogus scam made to make money, it does not, in any way still data, other than your name and mobile phone if you plan to give it to them.

The URL takes people to a website, that uses a name similar to Jio, to trick people into thinking that it is an official website.

But it’s just a sh**ty website, so you don’t have to worry about anything.
Just don’t allow notifications from the website, because that’s the objective of the spam.

How do these spammers make money?

Scammers always look for lucrative offers to trick people into falling into their trap. Who doesn’t want free recharge, right?

The website is configured with Push Notifications subscription, and once you allow notifications from this website, you would start getting notifications now and then. It would be annoying ads.

So it is a lame way to show ads as many people as the can to make money.

Better to stay away from such messages and websites and remember nothing in this world comes for free.

Hope you find this article useful you can share it with other people who keep getting messages and have a habit of falling into such traps.
