An advertisement making rounds on Facebook and WhatsApp claims that Safaricom is offering free 15 GB anytime data and 15 GB Night express data to Safaricom subscribers (users) while exhibiting comments of “beneficiaries.” The link leads to a website purporting to have come from Safaricom.
Upon looking up the link, Piga Firimbi found that the website attached is not the legitimate Safaricom website.
Safaricom’s website is titled Safaricom PLC (Green Logo) while the advertisement circulating is titled Safri Rewards (Black Logo). A further search of the website on WhoIs revealed that the website’s registrar is not Safaricom.
The alleged promotion does not appear on the legitimate Safaricom website nor its official social media platforms as would any other genuine promotions.
This advertisement claiming to give away free data bundles from Safaricom is FAKE.
