Ghaziabad: It’s amazing how often we get a message or a phone call telling us we have won something or the other. These glad tidings share plenty of similarities: the winner is notified that he has won a handsome sum of money or a commodity in a certain bill and must contact the concerned official to receive it. Sounds tempting, but alas, this is nothing more than network fraud.
Here’s another case from Indirapuram, Ghaziabad where Mr Bharat Bhushan, working in the media industry was the prey of such fraud via phone call from the digits +919801617261, that he has won a Tata Safari from PayTM on the last bill dated 3rd July, 2018.
Bhushan says, the man behind the phone call knew his last order details and was asking for his Aadhar Card number and PIN.
He added, I understood that the phone call is fake and immediately tweeted the matter to create awareness of such online fraud tricks and requested people to be vigilant when getting calls like these and not share any of your personal details to anyone ever.
