Feruccio Ferucci left Cape Town in October without suspecting that his banking information had been stolen.
Around the end of October, his Vodacom SIM card stopped working as well as his internet banking. Growing suspicious, he contacted his daughter in Cape Town to find out from Vodacom what had happened. They informed her that a SIM swap had been done.
“I did not authorise the SIM swap. My phone stopped working for about three weeks and then started working again.
“I haven’t heard anything from Vodacom telling me what happened because my phone just started working again three weeks later,” said Ferucci.
