There is a new technique being used by armed robbers and car hijackers to escape from arrest.

These robbers are now collecting used recharge cards, and once they abandon the hijacked cars or where they dump the dead bodies, they leave the already used cards at the scene or near the victims.

When the police arrive, they are using the scratch card’s serial number to track on which phone number it was loaded; and they start tracking the owner of the phone number. Already, two people who fell victim of the trick are in court.

To be on the safe side, once you load airtime, make sure you destroy the card before you dispose of it.
