Orange Uganda has drawn the attention of Ugandan customers to the prevalence of fraudulent activities being perpetuated by fraudsters who aim to deceive and defraud the company’s Ugandan customers.
The fraudulent activities include tricks of obtaining money by false pretence from the company’s subscribers.
Job seekers are asked to pay a fee and get assured of jobs with Orange telecom Uganda if they honour such payments.
Sometimes conmen send letters reportedly from Orange Uganda. In a news release today, Orange Uganda disassociated itself from such offers of jobs. The management of Orange Uganda says its Human Resource Department handles jobs, interviews and placements.
Some Ugandans have been approached with promises of Orange leasing their land for erecting masks. The conmen ask for commission. Orange Uganda disclaims such activities and warns people to reject such offers when they come and someone asks for commission.
Some fraudsters design promotions hinged on promises of customers winning cash prizes and free airtime from Orange telecom.
The management of Orange says all its promotions a winner receives an SMS displaying the word from ‘Orange.’ No phone numbers are used to send messages to the winners. The management further says their prices are redeemed at Orange head offices on plot 28-30 Clement Hill road.
