As per media reports, the volunteers, who are working on online safety, have already alerted all through a tweet regarding the email being circulated by scammers.

The reports say the phishing email displays an image saying ‘GigaFiber Activation Request Received’ having a click button.

As soon as a user would click on it, he or she is directed to a site which asks for the personal details of the user including the bank account details.

The fake site looks authentic having same colours and fonts as the original site.

It has been reported that to have a new connection, the users would have to register on Jio website and express his or her interest on behalf of their township or locality.

In order to register, the customers will be required to visit the website of Jio GigaFiber and book internet connection for their township or society.

The online registration for JioFiber connection requires the customer to first pick up the location for which the JioFiber broadband connection is sought.

It has been reported that the Reliance Jio Fiber services will be available in 1,600 towns across the country from the first day of its launch.

The Reliance Jio broadband plans will start from Rs 700 per month and boast of a minimum of 10Mbps speeds and will go up to 1 Gbps for Rs 10,000.
