People are constantly falling prey to message links received on mobile phones. They are losing their hard earned money. Is it greed or is it innocence? Or is it that they want to avoid getting their work done by standing in long queues? The answers can be all of these. One such incident occurred with a retired professor who received a call from some one who asked him to update his KYC and took the OTP from him. As a result the professor lost 10.5 lakh rupees from his account.
Messages have constantly been circulated regarding online frauds and fraud calls but people are falling prey everytime.The professor realised that he had been duped and took the assistance of the relevant bank who could save 6.5 lakh rupees but even then the balance amount went to the fraudsters. Efforts are being made to retrieve the lost amount.
Please do not fall prey to any message or call as no bank will ever ask you to update your details over phone. It has been a constant endeavour of the cyber cell to make the public aware of such messages and calls. But people choose to ignore and trust just anyone asking for their details. Do not open any link or reposnd to any fraud call or give your details to anyone over phone call. These are all fraudsters trying to become rich through your earnings. Cyber cell or police might not always be able to recover your amount and you are quite likely to lose your money.
