GLOBE WARNS OF SALE OF MODEMS PASSED OFF AS DITO UNITS
Globe is exposing to the public an illegal activity perpetuated by certain individuals and online stores concerning its Globe At Home WiFi modems.
The modus operandi involves selling these modems to unsuspecting customers with DITO stickers making them appear as DITO modems. Globe issued the following statement to warn customers and the public.
It has come to the Globe's attention that certain individuals and retail establishments are illegally reselling and passing off as DITO Telecommunity modems, several Globe At Home WiFi Modems.
The modus is done through the unauthorized unlocking of the Globe device, substituting the Globe SIM with a DITO Telecommunity SIM and concealing the Globe At Home trademark with a sticker of DITO.
All Globe At Home Prepaid WiFi kits have pre-inserted SIMs in the modems ready for activation via the Globe At Home app or FB messenger upon purchase.
The company said it is prepared to take the necessary legal action against these unscrupulous individuals and establishments carrying out these deceptive business practices, through the assistance of law enforcement authorities.
