identity fraud: Cyber fraud
The easiest way of cyber fraud is to steal people’s identities. For this, cyber criminals steal your Aadhaar, PAN card and bank related information. With the help of this personal information, money is illegally withdrawn from the victim’s account. Therefore, do not give such information to anyone under any circumstances.
Fooling with fake investment scheme
With the advent of online facilities for investment, criminals have also got an opportunity. By luring you with high returns, they trap you in such a scheme, where there is a high possibility of losing money.
Many companies even open offices to win the trust of investors. As soon as a lot of money is collected, these companies close their offices and run away. Therefore, if someone tells you about such a scheme, where the returns are more than that of banks and NBFCs, then keep your mind clear.
Trap people through emails and messages
For cyber fraud, criminals try to pretend that they are a legitimate company or person by creating emails, messages or websites. People fall into their trap, leak their information and become victims of fraud. Such phishing schemes have emerged very rapidly in the country.
