With the implementation of the SIM Registration Act underway, GCash is reminding its customers to be extra cautious against scammers who may take advantage of data collection.

Fraudsters continue to send out fake SIM registration emails to dupe users into giving out their personal information.

That’s why GCash reminds all its users that it will NEVER send links via SMS, email, or messaging apps. Philippine telecommunications providers have their SIM registration portals in place to ensure a safe and secure collection of data.

Everyone is encouraged to carefully check the messages they receive and never click suspicious links sent from unofficial channels.

GCash is also assuring its customers that their funds and account will remain safe as they go through the registration of their SIM cards as mandated by the law. To ensure undisrupted access to GCash accounts, the e-wallet is encouraging its customers to promptly register their SIM Card with their respective telco provider.

To report scams and other fraudulent activities, users can visit the official GCash Help Center at https://help.gcash.com/hc/en-us, message Gigi on the website and select, “I want to report a scam.”
