Hoax or Fact:

Hoax and Scam.

Analysis:

Certain stories doing rounds on WhatsApp come as a notice for Jio customers to upgrade to unlimited internet service till 31st December 2017 by following a link that comes with the message and installing the upgrade .apk file from the website. If the customer does not upgrade, it is also suggested that he won't be able to use the Jio Internet and calling services and that his Jio SIM might be deactivated. Do not get carried away with the lucrative data offer, for it is not a fact and a scam to mislead Jio users.

Jio Unlimited Internet Upgrade Scam

Reliance Jio has been in the news for sometime due to their 'unlimited' advertising of their 4G data. Unfortunately, cyber criminals have come up with various schemes to exploit this public craze in the internet service. In mid 2016 there was an online scam saying users in India can buy the Reliance Jio Unlimited 4G Internet and 3 months free calling service with a LYF Smartphone - all that for an incredible offer of - just 99 rupees. In the current case, when WhatsApp users followed the link in the message and tried to download the alleged upgrade to unlimited Jio internet till 31st December 2017, they were asked to provide their personal information like phone number, email address and state. The WhatsApp user was also required to share the message with his groups and with a certain number of WhatsApp contacts, before being able to upgrade. However, Reliance Jio did not announce any such offer or upgrade to unlimited internet till December 2017; these stories doing rounds on WhatsApp are simply hoaxes and scams. Earlier there was a similar scam offering Reliance Jio 4G Upgrade with 10GB Daily Download limit. The links that come with these stories are unsecured, and are not official announcements from the Jio service provider. Sharing

So we advise users not to get carried away with such lucrative offers and download unsecured apps that are only meant to steal your personal information and install third party software on your mobile phone, as it can send your data to cyber criminals. Sharing the message will only spread the scam further.
