PROJECT: KNOCKS AND SCAMS - THE TWIN SIM SCAM

YOU MAY SHARE THIS PUBLIC DOCUMENT

 

The Twin SIM scam is an emerging and sophisticated form of fraud that has recently come to our attention. Fraudsters use this method to duplicate your cell phone number onto another SIM card, allowing them to intercept your calls and SMS messages. This can have serious consequences, especially regarding sensitive information and financial transactions.

 

HOW IT WORKS:

  • Scammers gain control of your primary cell phone number by disrupting your network coverage and diverting your phone calls and SMS messages to a secondary "twin" SIM card.

  • This tactic enables them to receive your One-Time Passwords (OTPs) and other critical notifications that can be used to defraud you.

 

HOW TO IDENTIFY THE SCAM:

  • Unexpected Loss of Signal:

    • Your cell phone suddenly loses signal in areas where you usually have good coverage.

  • Missing OTPs:

    • You do not receive OTPs or other important messages, even after multiple attempts.

  • No Incoming Calls or Messages:

    • You stop receiving calls or messages altogether, indicating that your number might be compromised.

 

PREVENTATIVE MEASURES:

  • Monitor Your Signal:

    • Regularly check your phone's signal strength.

    • If you experience an unexpected signal loss, contact your service provider immediately.

  • Enable Account Alerts:

    • Set up alerts with your bank and other sensitive accounts to notify you of suspicious activities.

  • Use Secure Channels:

    • Whenever possible, use secure apps for OTPs and communications instead of relying solely on SMS.

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTING YOUR CELL PHONE AND SENSITIVE DATA:

 

Your cell phone is a gateway to your personal and financial information. Safeguarding it is crucial in preventing

unauthorised access and potential fraud. By being vigilant and proactive, you can reduce the risk of falling victim

to scams like the Twin SIM fraud.

 

If you suspect that you have been targeted by this scam, it is imperative to act quickly.

Contact your service provider and your bank immediately.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: All potential clients need to be aware that owing to the nature of our work as specialist investigators there are people who have been caught on the wrong side of the law - who are trying to discredit me - Mike Bolhuis and my organisation Specialised Security Services - to get themselves off the hook. This retaliation happens on social media and creates doubt about our integrity and ability. Doubt created on social media platforms is both unwarranted and untrue. We strongly recommend that you make up your minds concerning me and our organisation only after considering all the factual information - to the exclusion of hearsay and assumptions. Furthermore, you are welcome to address your concerns directly with me should you still be unsatisfied with your conclusions. While the internet provides a lot of valuable information, it is also a platform that distributes a lot of false information. The distribution of false information, fake news, slander and hate speech constitutes a crime that can be prosecuted by law. Your own research discretion and discernment are imperative when choosing what and what not to believe.


STANDARD RULES APPLY: Upon appointment, we require a formal mandate with detailed instructions. Please take note that should you not make use of our services – you may not under any circumstance use my name or the name of my organisation as a means to achieve whatever end.
