Rajasthan. Earlier, there used to be fraud through ATM cards, in which the thugs themselves used to call people and ask for ATM password etc. But this method has become old and people have realized this method, so now the thugs have adopted a new trick in which people themselves call the thugs. The thugs now send such a text message to the electricity consumers, after reading which the electricity consumer gets blown away and he immediately gets the phone under the guise of the thug and then within 10 minutes the bank account of the thug consumer is emptied completely. gives. The big thing is that even educated people are becoming victims of this type of cyber fraud. Recently in Kota, a 50-year-old educated woman became a victim of such fraud, more than 60 thousand rupees were cheated from her two accounts, whose report she has lodged in the police station, but till now no trace of the thugs has been found.
How do you cheat?
The thugs get the mobile number of the electricity consumer from somewhere and then send an English language text message on it which reads “Dear consumer, your electricity will be disconnected by the electricity department tonight at 09.30 because your last month’s electricity Bill not updated. Kindly contact our Electricity Officer immediately on the given number. Thank you”. After reading this message, the electricity consumer gets nervous and connects the phone with the mobile on the given number. On the other hand, the fraudster directs the consumer to install a (QS or any other) application in the mobile as soon as possible to update the electricity bill and when the application is installed, then run the application by directing Then it asks for the code shown on that application and when the consumer gives that code, he hacks the consumer’s mobile and empties the money from all types of his account.
How does the thug do this work-
Priyanka Saini, Principal of Excellent Law College in Kota, told about this that “Team Weaver application is installed in the name of QS application in the mobile of the consumers by the thugs and the user is asked to run it and the code coming on it is asked. Is. Once the consumer gives that code, the consumer’s mobile is completely in the possession of the swindler and he vacates the account.”
Personal information can also be leaked-
Dr Saini says that this type of fraud is very dangerous. In this, the thug gets full access to the consumer’s mobile and he can use all the photos, contacts, WhatsApp chat, email, Facebook, Instagram etc. Can also use your photo contact etc. in any way anywhere.
do not what-
According to Dr. Saini, if you have any message from any such department, then think at your discretion whether there is any company’s name in the said message? You can confirm the above information by contacting the concerned local office, because no one can cut your electricity connection through text message or phone in the same day’s short notice. Therefore, never call on unknown numbers or install any unknown application in your mobile.
