Huawei's warning

The fraudulent activity is usually posed as a Huawei promo offering devices from the brand at a lower price or for free. It will ask the customer to sign up as a beta user and provide critical information such as credit card details to avail of the deal. Huawei reiterates in the statement that said news and promotions are fake.

Huawei also advises social media users to refrain from providing personal information if they find themselves in such situations as to not fall victim to cyber theft. 

Here's what you should do to prevent others from caving into these tempting bargains:

  • When you spot a suspicious post, click the options button (three dots) on the upper right part.
  • Click Find Support or Report Post/Report Ad from the options
  • Select False News from the items and you're done

Red flags users should watch out for include suspicious wordings that are too good to be true, such as "lowest price"; get a free Huawei P30 Pro for signing up to be a beta test user, or purchase the Huawei P30 Pro for only PHP 55.

The brand is taking strong action against these fake deals and are encouraging users to report these posts if they ever come across one.

To stay updated on the latest news and promotions on Huawei, follow their official social media accounts.
