It has recently been brought to the attention of The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) that scammers may be approaching a number of subscribers through WhatsApp and mobile calls claiming to be employees in the TRA who are giving out cash prizes.
The TRA advises consumers to refrain from engaging with these scammers and report all suspicious communication immediately to The Ministry of Interior’s General Directorate of Anti-Corruption & Economic & Electronic Security. TRA also advises consumers to block these numbers on WhatsApp to limit further communication.
The TRA would further like to emphasize that it does not give out cash prizes or use WhatsApp as an official means of communication.
