Stop Giving Your Phone Numbers To Strangers– DSS Cautions

The Department of State Services(DSS) has warned citizens to exercise caution when it comes to giving their phone numbers to strangers.

The Deputy Director of DSS in Anambra State, Yekini Ishola, gave the advice while presenting a paper, entitled, “Developing technological strategy towards crime reduction in a tertiary institution,” at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University.

He said, “Cybercrimes are not committed by individuals, but by syndicates using theft, hacking, stocking, malicious software and other dubious means to gain access to personal information and account details.

“Desist from disclosing sensitive personal information like Bank Verification Numbers, ATM pin numbers, passwords and phone numbers to unknown persons.”
