Econet Agents Not Respecting Sensitive Customer Information

Share

When you subscribe to a mobile network you share some pretty sensitive information that you normally wouldn’t want to get into the wrong hands i.e your address and your ID number.

Econet agents who sign subscribers up seem to not acknowledge the importance of this information if a stack of customer forms found in town is anything to go by:

One would assume that these forms would be guarded by the agents at all costs but this does not seem to be the case with the pictures in question actually containing photocopied versions of customers ID along with all the other information that these forms contain.

    • Thats ubsurd, Ecocash customers have fallen prey to fraudsters coz they share their info and phones with friends and relatives, cant blame agents for that. As for the forms lying around, thats surely a deliberate attempt to tarnish Econet coz subscibers are given their copies and whether they lose them or not is customers fault.

      Techzim please do not be like Zimeye, write the truth, we have respected you so far, now you are becoming serial liars like shameless Zimeye.

  • Thank you for the article. Those papers no matter where they are a the property and responsibility of Econet and its agents,so be vigilant and careful with your information. It is more likely that the agents are to blame as Econet itself not only files allcustumer documents but also shreds them to protect our privacy when the are entered into their computer systems. Iam of the thought that this article is to inform not to persecute.

    Thank youTechzim
