About the Equitel category

Equitel is a virtual mobile network operating riding on Airtel Kenya’s network infrastructure. It’s main focus is making it easier to make financial transactions from mobile thanks to its tie-in with Equity Bank and the target market is the bank’s customers.

Today me and 3 of my friends signed up for Equitel. Interestingly we all started getting spammed with ‘Your account has been temporarily suspended … … … For further inquiries call…’.

All four of us received several of these messages from different numbers. All this even after hatujamaliza na kutoka Bank. On inquiry the Bank guys told us those were fraudsters n we should simply ignore them and that this spamming was the subject of an ongoing internal inquiry …

What I am wondering is this: if these guys can’t secure their Sim cards how safe is our money…
