The Problem With CarlCare: 3 reasons why fixing your phone at CARLCARE may be a bad move


I used to be a huge fan of CarlCare in Nigeria, you know the service company that repairs Tecno, Infinix, Itel phones officially with offices across Nigeria and elsewhere. My experience with them started when I learnt I could change any part of my Phone that is still under the warranty grace period at CarlCare at no cost.  Since then I have been an advocate of CarlCare, telling my friends and others to always use their services to get reliable fixes.
However, my latest discovery of their services was shocking, to say the least.
I went to CarlCare center, located at Obafemi Awolowo way at Computer Village Ikeja to fix two Tecno phones; one is a Teno Boom J8 that had broken top screen ( that means it was only the upper screen(touch) that was broken and the inside screen was not broken.
I also went with a Tecno Camon C7 that had a bad screen (both inside and outside screens where bad due to fall and water).

SECURITY ALERT, MUST READ! See Top 3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Hold Your ATM Card In Your Hand While On Queue



We must really be living in a jet-age because if you might wanna know, even with you just standing on the ATM users queue waiting for your turn (with your ATM card in your hand, someone behind you might just be paying for some bills with your hard earned cash.

So don’t be surprised if it gets to your turn and you can’t find any cash in your account again.

Yea…that’s how technology has evolved.

So might wanna see my top 3 reasons why you should neither give someone you card to withdraw for you nor hold your ATM card in your hand while on the queue.

NOTE: there are many but I just culled my top 3, may differ from yours.

1. Online Shopping: Without your ATM card PIN, one can still pay for goods online with your card, all that’s needed is your card’s:
»Serial number (the 15 or 16 digits in front if your card)
»Expiry date (just below the serial no.)
»Security digit (can be found at the back of your card, usually 3 digits )

2. Clone Cards: Payoneer master card owners always fall victim to clone cards. If anybody get hold of your card, they can easily get all the details of the card and clone it exactly. The cloned cards can then be used to withdraw your money from any part of the world.

Payonneer might just not be the only victims but they are very common.

3. Payment of Bills From Scam Jobs or Websites: If you give your card to somebody that is knowledgeable about Internet stuff, he can easily use your card details to sign up on websites like domain registrar, website hosting or some tutorial website that involves subscription. These websites will keep on sucking the hell out of your money monthly without your knowledge.

To avoid falling victim of any of these 3 and other dangers, don’t give somebody else your ATM card for anything and keep your card in you purse or wallet while on the ATM queue.
