UNKNOWN SIM REGISTERED ON IQAMA

SOMEONE REGISTERED UKNOWN SIMS USING YOUR IQAMA

Be careful, If you left your iqama or muqeem card copy somewhere or if you gave a photocopy of your iqama or muqeem to someone, It may be possible your iqama may be misused by someone for few bucks. 





I seen few of my friends whose iqama was misused, Even they did not share a photocopy of their iqama to anyone. Few of Small shop distributors register sims on unknown iqama and they sell your named sim to some other one for little money.  Recommended : Mobily Prepaid SIM

UNKNOWN SIM CARD ON IQAMA

As i said, My friend was a victim of this issue, someone registered nearly seven STC sims on his name without his awareness. He came to know that when he got messages from STC. He got that messages because he was using same network sim and he registered online account with STC to track his services. As he got messages, He checked his online account of STC and found those seven Sims available on his name. Recommended : STC Prepaid SIM





He called customer care, They requested him to go to store. He also used online chat option available on STC site, the response was same. He visited stores the response was not good. At last he visited main store of STC, finally he blocked those numbers and removed those Sims. Recommended : Zain prepaid sim

SIM CARD FRAUD ON IQAMA

You can also inquire about any unknown Sims on you iqama by going to directly telecom network sites customer care chat by inform your iqama. Ask them any Sims are registered with this iqama id? Saudi Arabia telecom networks are Mobily, Zain and STC. Its better to check all these three networks. Recommended : Friendi Sim card





Airport officials may stop you by going home, if there is any balance on your iqama. So be careful when you are using your iqama copies. Recommended : Virgin prepaid sim
