    I received a WhatsApp message yesterday informing that I was selected for a reward from DU, Etisalat, Expo 2020 and DubaI duty free. I won an amount of 200,000 AED in the Happiness New Year of 2018. they gave me contact number 0566955941 and 0545192355 or visit the website: hxxps://online.dibaidutyfree.com
    there is another message with the same has Etisalat logo beside his mobile# 0564960767.

    I contacted the 0545192355. The person who answer my call confirm my mobile number and he knows my name. He said he will send the reward amount by asking my bank account number, but I didn't give. then he told me he can process the transaction thru Al AnsarI exchange by asking again my emirates ID number, but I didn't give again, then he started trying to convince me that this is a promotional and it is legit so on and on.

    I ended up the conversation.
    These people knows my mobile number and even knows my name. How you will ensure that these people will never victimize other people.
