One of the side-effects of the pandemic is the sudden rise in cybercrime, as just about everyone is hooked on to e-commerce sites and online shopping. However, cybercriminals are evolving by the day and are coming up with new and innovative antics to dupe the citizens.


In one such incident, a person was approached by a cybercriminal posing as a delivery boy. When the person said he did not order anything from any e-commerce site, the ‘so-called’ delivery person insisted that he take the parcel. Assuming that one of his family members would have ordered something, the person gave directions to his house. 


Once the ‘delivery boy’ reached the person’s house, he scanned a QR code from the product and asked for the OTP. The gullible person took the parcel after giving the OTP. Once the person was gone, he was shocked to get an alert that Rs 1,16,845 was debited from his account. He checked the parcel to find useless papers stuffed into the box. The person checked his bank statement and realized that he was duped as the ‘delivery boy’ hacked the account using the OTP. 


The person immediately lodged a complaint with the cybercrime department. One of the cyber crime department officers has issued a statement urging the people of Hyderabad and others to remain alert and not fall into such traps. Even if a small doubt arises, it must be immediately reported to the police.
