After the entry of Reliance Jio into the world of Telecommunication Industry, a lot has been changed. Be it’s the price, the quality or the competition, everything took a drastic turn. But somehow and unfortunately it gave opportunities to many unprofessional players to earn money in a very unethical manner. Wondering how? Here is how it’s being done.
India is a country where the word ‘FREE’ sells in a much faster rate than any other word ever sponsored or promoted. Currently, a WhatsApp message is on a roll where it promises to give you a FREE BSNL 4G Sim card with UNLIMITED Data.
The only thing that you need to do is just to visit the website and register your number. Seems simple and pretty easy, RIGHT? Well, there is no harm in doing that, but that won’t fetch you anything. Not even a sim card.
It’s just a fake message with a fake website URL that has just been made on an account of earning some quick money in a small amount of time. Well, we can’t provide you the link to that website since that would serve as a promotion in itself. However, the website looks like this.
Now, all of you must be wondering why the heck in this world people make such websites. Well, there is a reason for that. If we observe the website, one can easily find it that they are asking for your mobile numbers. The moment you feed your real number with the expectation of owning a FREE 4G SIM, the number gets saved to their directories and later on, they SELL your mobile number to various different companies who then text you with sponsored and promoted contents.
Since these websites get a lot of traffic at very initial stages of their existence, they put on various ad networks so as to generate revenue in a quick amount of time. Some of these websites also try affiliate marketing and do earn quite a healthy income through that. You need to be aware of such scam websites and report it to Google as soon as possible.
