Disclosing your national identification card details is risky because fraudsters could use them to create phone numbers for unauthorized transactions. In case you lose your national identification card in the streets, ensure to keep the police aware about it and get an abstract to act as evidence of losing it.
In case a fraudster makes an illegal transaction using a phone number linked to your ID, you will likely be found guilty unless you have a police abstract to prove your innocence.
Dial *106# which will prompt you to choose different categories with option one being to check numbers registered under your national ID details. Incase you find out that you don't use or recognize some of the numbers listed, kindly use the option of reporting the numbers to Safaricom so that the number can be banned.
Kindly pass on this information to keep people updated. Remember to follow me for more updates. Thank you.
