I got a call from an unknown person from another city that they have a franchise and that they have the same number I have with 0321 prefix and they would give it to me for 500 rs with 500 credit. To cut a long story short I did't send him my id card or claim the sim.. After a few weeks warid people called me enquiring about the sim which has been issued and may be asking for conformation or what. I told them to block the number imediately,and I DO NOT own the number.
Then a 2 year jump.. I am porting out to UFone.. And My reuqest is on hold till the 4th of this month. A few days back the helpline people told me there is a "related" number with outstanding dues.. It turned out Warid,without proper verification or "consent" for that sake have issued a "post paid" number with a "security waiver" on my name.. Since the port out is due on 4th and I am really sick and tired of people giving me missed calls at the middle of night(they apologize when I call back in the morning),I want to use Ufone's call block facility badly. And after the advice that the fraud enquiry thing would take quite some time and lamba procedure and it would be wise on my part to clear the dues (Rs.348)and forget the whole thing if I want to port out NOW..
To be honest they were very cooperative and candid. My cousin has the same problem,only the number was not the same number with 0322 code but a totally different number altogether. He registered a fraud complain but did't follow it. Now what the hell is this really..
I did clear the dues and ask them to convert the number on prepaid for which I paid another 100 rs.. Kher ..the point is..How hopeless is warid ..issuing a post paid number with a "security waiver" without an id card (in all probability) and billing address verification ..And despite the fact that I asked them to block the number as I never bought it,they blocked it as "stolen"...
