Beware of Fake Wireless Broadband ISPs

Another day, and here comes another scam. We are told by multiple readers that there are some fraudulent people offering wireless broadband of 1 MB link for just Rs. 1,000 per month, even lower price in various cities.

These fraudulent groups are going door to door to offer their services. They claim to be representatives of renowned ISPs, and that they are offering special packages to home users at discounted rates.

It was told that group consists of well trained and educated youngsters. They carry well printed brochure and pose exactly like professional sales’ persons.

However, when someone applies and pays the dues – they are never given the broadband services, neither they saw those representatives again in the vicinity. We learnt that contact details of these sellers were fake and victims were left with no option but to repent over the situation.

We advise our readers to not to pay any penny to anyone, unless you are sure that salesman is authorized from the respective ISP.

It is alarming situation for ISPs, as this scam will impact their business strategy if they start door to door selling in coming days.
