If you share your personal information in this temptation of cyber criminals, anyone can commit cyber fraud with you.

Debt of Rs 1.30 lakh per person - In this fake message, the cyber criminals have talked of giving Rs 1.30 lakh from the central government to all citizens as a Covid 19 fund. In a fake message, people over the age of 18 have been told to transfer the funds directly to their bank accounts. And at the same time, when you fill in such information, you are robbed of it.


The government issues alerts from time to time in case of such fake messages. Also, if you receive a message from an unknown number, do not make the mistake of believing it or forwarding it.
