Good news!! Jio is giving free 25GB data : SCAM

If you have received a message claiming to be sent by Reliance Jio about new offers along with services then be very careful. The popularity of Reliance Jio is a prime attraction for scammers to send phishing messages and lure users into downloading malicious apps. Recently, cyber security firm Symantec found 152 malicious Android apps being circulated online that claim to provide free data boosts for Jio customers.

  • Reliance Jio has warned against fake messages promising 25GB of free data
  • Company has been offering free voice calls and high data allocation with its telecom plans

With users wanting more and more data above their existing allocation, many fraudsters have found this as an opportunity to dupe consumers with the lure of free data. One such case that has come to light is a fake message that is promising users 25GB of data from the company.

“Good news!! Jio is giving free 25GB data daily for 6 months. Download app now and register to activate offer,” claims the message.

But before such lies can spread like wildfire and assume a life of its own, the company has come out and issued a clarification announcing that this news is fake. This was done after the message was brought to the company’s notice on social media by a Jio user who received the message.

Reliance Jio officially commented on Twitter, “Jio does not send such messages/calls. All Jio offer related information is transparently available in your MyJio app or on http://Jio.com. Pls watch out for spam messages & scammers.”
