Attention! WhatsApp users have become victims of hackers, who are now looting money in this manner and do not know how to save

You are in danger if you use WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. Fraudsters have devised a new method of defrauding the user. Users should keep a few things in mind to avoid falling prey to such con artists. Let’s get the word out…

You are in danger if you use WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or other social media platforms. Friends and family can contact via social media. This, however, has the potential to deceive you. It does not directly assault users; instead, it pushes them to provide personal information in order to steal money from them. On social media, people are frequently sent a message promising a prize or benefit in exchange for clicking on a link.

With a simple click, users are reduced to paupers.

The only way to gain these benefits, users are persuaded, is to click on these links. However, as soon as the user clicks on the link, the user’s phone or computer will be infected with malware or programmes. These are intended to monitor users and transfer data to scammers. All activity can be easily tracked, and data can be sent without the user’s awareness.

A fictitious form is filled out and a fraud is perpetrated.

Users are prompted to fill out several forms and enter their login and password after clicking. These forms are false, and they’re frequently located on phoney websites that look like they belong to a legitimate bank or other institution. As evidenced by press reports, a considerable number of people have been misled by the fraudsters’ schemes.

In order to avoid falling prey to such con artists, consumers should keep a few things in mind…

1. Recognize a fraud when someone promises to provide substantial benefits in exchange for money. Remember that nothing comes for free, and those who promise it are most often deceiving others.

2. Consider it a scam if someone asks you for your login and password or other sensitive information. No bank or respectable business will ask you for this information.

3. Credit and debit card numbers, CVV, PIN, Internet Banking User ID, and Internet Banking Password are all banking credentials that are never shared with anyone.

4. Never give out the OTP (One-Time Password) that you receive. This could be a scammer attempting to gain access to your bank account or other personal accounts. Anything from your Aadhar card to an e-commerce website can be used.
