An Expat tell his Story how he paid 335 SR on Fraud Sim cards on his name

Never ever buy sim cards from outside stalls in public places in Saudi Arabia, They will attract the people by giving free sim or ask them to pay very little money. One of our blog reader shared his whole experience on this matter, read it from below. Similar : Unknown sim card registered on my iqama

Hi, I am Alvin, a Filipino resident in Jeddah, I am preparing for my final exit as my company ended contract with me. I am trying to clear all my belongings before I left. While doing so, I go through a below link from CITC.

- I am shocked to see 11 sims on my iqama number, that too post paid sims, Trust me, I only use one sim that is Mobily prepaid, remaining all are not mine. I went to the nearest Mobily center, I explained them, I found 4 post paid sims of Mobily on my name, which are not mine at all.
- He took my iqama and gave me details of 4 post paid sims, In which there was a bill of 250 Saudi riyals, He tell me to pay it, in order to cancel it, every month it will be increased, if you did not pay it. I refused, he said its on your id, you are the responsible to pay it, without paying the amount we cannot able to cancel them, If you will not pay, you will be stopped at airport while going on exit, I paid it with my sad face.

- Then I went to Zain customer care center, After waiting for one hour, I got my token number, He said there are 6 post paid sim cards with your iqama number. In order to cancel it you need to pay the bill of 85 Saudi riyals. I tell I did not use it, He said its upto you, You want to pay or not but you will be stopped at airport as it is on your identity.

- I remember, I bought one sim card from outside stall, From where they use my finger print and issued new post paid sim cards in various telecom networks, I feel they did for commission, I lost more money than they earn from it.

- I suggest all to not to left your iqama or its copy anywhere, try to give it only to the authentic offices. Do not buy sim cards from outside stalls, where they attract customers with free sim cards or for less amount. Buy only through their official telecom centers. Otherwise you may face the same problem as I faced. Read : Know your STC number
