How to Detect fake alert message
This will help you as a business owner to figure when fake alert comes in but not in all circumstances so don’t rely fully on it as our discussion here is two sided. You will understand shortly as you keep reading.
Knowing fake alert message simply means the sender uses easy to detect methods “The sms format” in this format ,the suspect already have your phone number so all they need to do is come to your POS shop for example and ask for your account details in quest to make a transfer.
They will then formulate the alert by editing already exiting credit alert on their phone and changing the name and other details to match the information you have provided after which details will be forwarded as an alert to your phone number using the bulk sms method.
The reason this bulk sms method is used is because the bank name need to show up in the alert so it won’t look like it was sent directly through a phone number.
If you are not careful you will give the money out before you notice something is off and by then the suspect might have gone.
Here are few things to take note of:
Confirmation: If the amount involve is that huge and you’re not so sure about the transaction, you may have to contact the bank for confirmation. This will help you verify the authenticity of the transaction without time waste.
You don’t need to go through the stress of entering the bank and filling forms.you only have to contact customer care for your bank.
- Suspects Characters: The suspects are always in a hurry to leave after sending the alert .they wouldn’t give time for confirmation instead all their reflection at that point goes to collecting the cash.
Thats why suspects always target busy shops. They usually succeed here because most times victims won’t have enough time to run a thorough check.They just give out the money out of assumption.
- Check for Errors: In most cases the suspects always make mistakes during editing since they are always in hurry and that’s where you see error in name or account number inside the alert.
Bank will never make mistakes in any spelling as everything is already configured. Check for spelling errors in the alert.
- Not phone number: You should understand that if anyone wants to send you money, they are not supposed to ask for your phone number. Just your bank name and account number and account name is OK.
If anyone come asking for your phone number you should take that as a red flag.
- Check Your Balance: Over 80% of people who does fake alert uses the sms method which means the victims bank balance will not be credited.
If your balance isn’t credited i think you already know what to do. Place customer on hold till funds are confirmed.
Does it mean you can detect every fake transfer? When the suspects uses advanced tools such as we have listed below you may not be able to know it’s fake alert unless after a while.

This app is affordable even though it’s not free. This app isn’t based on topup .all you need is pay for your token and you’re good to go.
FLASH FUNDS: This serve same purpose as Zoalert but of different concepts. With any of these tools ,you can send fake alert and it will reflect in the recipient balance.
The money will remain in their balance 14 days maximum duration after which it will disappear. This app is based on topup if you must get it running .it’s not free but it’s affordable.
Using the cardro pro app is another method to send fake alert but we don’t usually recommend it because it have some other features such as carding and bvn hack.
It will be better using a tool which is specifically designed for just fake alert rather than using the one with multi-functions. That does not mean that cardro pro is not a good tool don’t get me wrong.
You don’t expect real things to come free. People who love free things are those who get caught at last because they don’t want to buy effective tools for Hustle.
