eSIM is one of the new technologies that has started gaining traction as various telecom operators such as Airtel and Vodafone have started providing people with the option to go for one. However, the new trend is also prone to fraudulent activities that can steal your money. To stay safe from such online scams, you must stop believing the fraudulent messages they receive. If anyone fishy calls you asking for your information to update your KYC, DO NOT provide any information to the person. Instead, call the actual customer care number and ensure your phone number is safe. Additionally, refrain from sharing your banking details with anyone, be it via a Google form or someone over a call. If you have fallen prey to an eSIM fraud, immediately contact the customer care to stop the eSIM activation process.
