TSTT blocks hoax messages

By JANELLE DE SOUZA Saturday, March 15 2014

Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (TSTT) has blocked the international numbers which have been sending text messages to its customers asking them to call the numbers for a reward.

TSTT Head of Public Relations and External Affairs, Graeme Suite, noted that, starting on Tuesday, “several thousand” of its mobile customers received hoax text messages alleging to be from TSTT and Central Bank.

The messages claimed that customers had won money, and advised them to visit Central Bank to receive the winnings while other texts requested that they call the international numbers to receive a prize.

Corporate Communications Manager of Central Bank, Charlene Ramdhanie, told Newsday that on Thursday, the Bank received approximately 500 calls, ten visitors and several emails from individuals requesting instructions on how to collect their prize.
