RE: How to Prevent Fake Cellphones Check 'mobile IMEI ' Before Buy

in Project HOPE2 years ago

Some time ago, a colleague told me that the laws tend to be behind the crimes in terms of their time, that is, only the laws are made when the crimes already exist, in the current case, I have already encountered the question that the proliferation of mobile phones led in several countries to the proliferation of crimes associated with their possession, ranging from smuggling to theft of devices, for such cases, the use of IMEI block lists directly in networks of the service providers was one of the solutions that was implemented.

I hope this serves to help dissuade criminals who are involved with these kinds of crimes, but also that the notice serves to make the general population aware of the need to review what is to be purchased in order to avoid unpleasant surprises.
