International Call forwarding fraud

During the early hours of Sunday morning my cellphone was stolen at the Cubana restaurant Menlyn Piazza c/o Glen Manor & Lois avenue Pretoria.The  phone being an Iphone 4, I automatically assumed that it was the handset the thieves were after. Being that late in the morning hours and also having no means to call from home, nor did I see any significant risk in not taking immediate action in reporting the sim as stolen. I managed to report the incident first thing in the morning at the service provider.To my shock I was told that I had incurred fraudulent calls to total of R25 000 to within 6,5hrs!
Your simcard is the new target not the handset.
Protect yourselves by making sure your international roaming services is not active unless you need this service.
