JEDDAH: Saudi mobile users have been urged to ignore SMS messages claiming to be from a local bank or offering prizes.
The Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) warned mobile users about fraudulent messages and asked them to report spam via text to a specially assigned number, 330330.
The CITC works with service providers, investors, and individual and corporate users to advance the communications and information technology sector and implement government strategies.
The communications sector was the first to be privatized in the Kingdom. The privatization program seeks to increase the effectiveness and competitiveness of the national economy through liberalization of the services market and opening sectors to fair competition. The commission aims to regulate communications and information technology in the Kingdom.
