For people who has a postpaid account to cellphone networks you should take care and give notice to network about this one. There is a wide syndicate impersonating a person just to gain something for free. This time we saw this from one of our friends that someone tried to be a globe customer impersonator just to gain a handset upgrade. This person made a fake id and even tried twice in a two different Globe store.
Last saturday evening, May 30, 2015, around 9:20PM, I received a call from Globe Business Center, SM MOA. Somebody claiming to be me was trying to avail of handset upgrades for 4 of my accounts. He’s supposed to get iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6, and the handsets will be charged to my bill. He provided IDs with his picture. But some of the data are not correct, like my middle name, ID numbers and signature. But my first and last name and the date of birth are all correct.
The CS at Globe SM MOA got suspicious only after he failed to answer a question about my last handset upgrade. So the CS called my number and told me about the situation. We hangup after it was verified that the person in their store was indeed not me. Sadly, I failed to ask them to have that person apprehended.
I immediately called their hotline (211) to report the incident and put a note on each and every one of my account with Globe to call my personal number first whenever there’s a transaction with any of my accounts.
Then the following day, May 31, 2015, at around 5:00PM, I got another call, this time from Globe Gateway Mall. Same modus as in SM MOA. An impostor is again claiming for a re-contracting of my account to get free handsets. The CS at Globe Gateway Mall handed the phone to the impostor, but the impostor kept on saying “Hello” pretending not to hear me. Then he handed back the phone to the CS and ran out of the store.
Based on the pictures of the ID presented and the description of the CS at Globe MOA, it was the same person who attempted to claim handsets at both Globe stores.
Let this be a warning to everyone.
Friends and readers please inform your other friends about this one. They might become a victim of such modus. Hope that next time once a network encounter such incident they should apprehend the impersonator.
