Hi, not sure if this is the best place to put this, but it is re my MTN mobile contract, that I recently upgraded:

Basically got phishing mails (initial links are not even to MTN website, and then goes to mtn.com), I did request an
OTP on the fake website, with no intention of even entering anything. (Didn't receive said OTP anyway). So I sent the link to MTN fraud dept by mail and waited for them to come back.

Meanwhile, this morning 10:00 I get an OTP that I usually get with accessing the MTN Billing links sent via SMS (been getting them for years via this number) except I didn't request it. Tested the link immediately, it warned me that I had already gotten my OTP. Waited a couple of minutes whilst looking for MTN contact numbers to phone, tried again and got a new OTP from the system.

So someone is trying to access my acc. obviously.

I am just hoping someone on here can point me in the direction of the correct number to dial to report / query this?


Thanks!
