No, you have not won hundreds of Dhirams, sorry.


Etisalat has issued a warning against an ongoing SMS scam that fools users into believing they have won hundreds of Dhirams.

According to the telecom, all SIM cards have have the same first eight numbers (89971122) and are no indication that the caller is an Etisalat employee.

Etisalat also said that whenever they want to inform someone of a win, the winner would be required to go physically to an Etisalat office and claim the prize.
