Beware! Man lost Rs 57,000 to scamsters: Did you get this message too?

With more and more people going digital and using instant payment facilities like IMPS, fraudsters are also adopting new techniques to steal money from users. Every day, many people fall into the web of cyber criminals and lose their hard earned money.

In Haryana, police received a total of 36,996 cybercrime complaints from January to August this year through cybercrime helpline numbers 1930, portal cybercrime.gov.in, 309 cyber-desks and 29 cyber police stations. Of these, 20,484 complaints are under process and 15,057 have been resolved.

In one such incident, a man named Vipul from Kaithal in Haryana lost Rs 57,000 to criminals after he clicked on a suspicious link received in a message promising a gift. Vipul then approached the State Crime Branch of Haryana Police. Soon after, the police stopped the transaction and Vipul will now get back Rs 50,000 out of the Rs 57,000 he lost in the two transactions.

Experts suggest that one should neither click on unknown or suspicious links nor share bank details with anyone online or offline.

Also, if someone asks you to share the OTP, you should never share it with anyone. If you get any cash prize or lottery prize message, be sure to share your details to receive the prize.

Smartphone users should also note that they never need to scan any QR code to get money. The QR code is required to be scanned only when they want to give money to a person.

Sometimes users get calls like their ATM card or credit card is blocked or expired and then the caller asks for important details like card number, PIN and OTP. Experts say that users should never share such details with anyone.
