Of late, with everything happening online, one is finding it difficult to figure out if something is genuine or a fraud. Despite many stories in the media, people are still falling for fraudsters. Recently, a woman from Hyderabad was cheated under the pretext of the KBC lottery.


Cybercrime police arrested one Rakesh Kumar from Patna for fraud. As per the police version, a housewife from Khairtabad received a phone call on October 2, and the caller informed her that she had won a lottery by KBC, and they explained to her the withdrawal procedure


The caller advised her to deposit different amounts in the name of fees. Other people in the guise of bank managers spoke to her to convince her to send money. Incidentally, the woman sent Rs 39 lakh in the name of different charges.


However, she later realized she had been cheated on and approached the police. The police arrested the accused, and they seized 16 mobile phones, 73 debit cards, 30 SIM cards, 11 bank passbooks, and two checkbooks.


Police have also cautioned people not to fall for KBC or Naptol tricks. In another case from Noida, four women cheated a woman in the name of reward points. A woman resident of Kanchanbagh received a call from a person claiming to be from the SBI Credit Card division and offered to redeem reward points in cash. The victim followed the instructions and even divulged the OTP received on the phone. Subsequently, she lost Rs 1 lakh over a period of three years.


The police busted a call center and arrested 11 accused of using it for cyber fraud. The fraudsters were involved in 18 cases across Telangana and 101 crimes all over India.
