It has happened to me 5th time this year. however this time I ended up complaining to Etisalat.
” Sir, you speaking English ?”
“Yes, go ahead”
“I giving to Mr Ahmed, my supervisor. Hold aan “
The voice always seems to resemble to a particular nationality. I can’t definitely say, but I know it will definitely hurt many sentiments, so I prefer not to talk on the nationality of these scam artists.
I decided to go on with the prank and wait for Mr Supervisor to come online.
” Sir, I am Mr Ahmed, Supervisaar -Etisalat. “
” Ok, what is it Ahmed”.
” You newly coming Dubai now. You win from Etisalat 2 Lakh Dirhams. You must very happy no ? I aaalso very happy for you.”
I always disconnect the phone call at this juncture, though it’s very tempting to say –
“You can keep aaaall the money. A tip no. “
I have the last 2 number saved in my phone, if you have any more, please leave them in comments. Hopefully it should keep some innocent migrant from getting duped.
