Jio Free 399Rs. Recharge Scam

We have come across the website Jio-Free-399rs.com that claims to offer Jio free 399Rs. recharge with Rs. 399 100% cashback.

Most probably, the payment landing page was taken down later. Else, the visitor would be asked to pay 399 rupees for recharge that he is said to get 100% cashback. Point to note, Jio celebrated their anniversary back in September 2017 itself and as such they did not offer any free recharge. Moreover, we have seen the links that come with these stories of free recharge are not secured, and are not official announcements from the Jio service provider.
