  1. Why would you have 2 USSD codes to begin with? It creates confusion. Even their app transition was not great and could have been done in a better fashion.

    This is what creates opportunities for attackers to publish fake notices too and execute phishing attacks.

  2. They should have just updated the old USSD (bring the new features to it). Isn’t ecocash was able to improve functionality by using its same code. This thing of “rebranding” can create unnecessary confusion.
