With my 15 years in the telecommunication industry am failing to understand the whole story. Was his phone lost? Did those zubats went to Airtel for new sim card for same number (Ralphs number)? Did they got the call log to identify frequently called or calling numbers? or they waited for somebody to call for the number and then later demanded the money? Answer me please. Cellphone is most secure device and nobody can manage to remotely steal personal contacts from the simcard through the GSM network.

That is one reason phone numbers need not be made public, willy nilly.

And people should be ware of WhatsApp groups and other places which expose a user’s mobile number.

That’s not hacking, its called cloning. His sim-card has simply been cloned. Tamafunsani kaye zinazi!!

It’s not cloning either. Cloning a SIM card cannot restore the contacts list in the new card as indicated in the story that people are being contacted from Kasambala’s phone contact list

There is nothing wrong bwana, Hacking is the practice of modifying the features of a system, in order to accomplish a goal outside of the creator’s original purpose. Cloning is one of the thousands way of hacking.
