Beware, give up the urge to take a call that you do not know, especially a WhatsApp video call from an anonymous number. Answering one such number costs a resident of Narsingi Rs 55,000. The 30-year-old approached the police only after he was made to pay money multiple times.


Incidentally, the person’s image was morphed with videos of others, and he was threatened to pay or suffer consequences. To go into his story, apparently, the person got a WhatsApp call from an anonymous number. When he answered the call, all he got to see was a blank video on the screen without any audio, and the call got cut abruptly. A few minutes later, he got a message allegedly showing a morphed pornographic video of him.


Some unknown person threatened to share the video with his contacts if he did not pay the money he asked for. Initially, he was asked to pay Rs 5000. Then after a few days, he was asked to pay Rs 30,000. Due to fear, the person gave in and paid the amount. Again after a brief lull, he was asked to pay Rs 20,000. This time, the person decided to approach the police.


Usually, the cheaters make friends with individuals and then coerce them into taking nude videos. Once the cheaters get the video, they start blackmailing the victim.


Normally, the numbers are accessed randomly from various social media accounts. However, in this particular case, the police have been unable to track how the accused got the victim’s number.
