Cyber ​​fraud on a person in Kanpur

As much as life has become easier due to technology, difficulties are also increasing. Most of the problems these days are coming in the form of cyber fraud. Despite awareness, cyber fraudsters are devising new ways to empty people’s bank accounts every day. One such case has come to light from UP’s Kanpur, where seeking helpline assistance has proved costly for an individual.

Jaideep Verma, a resident of Kanpur, was transferring money to an acquaintance of his. The money was mistakenly transferred elsewhere. To seek help and lodge a complaint, he searched for the bank’s helpline number on Google and dialed the number and complained about the wrong transaction. But what happened next shook Jaideep completely.

1,75,200 were flown

The person sitting on the helpline number got Jaideep Verma to download an app and after taking the bank details, he withdrew Rs 1,75,200 from the bank account. When he received the withdrawal message, he realized that it was a fake helpline number and that he had been cyber-frauded. After this he immediately contacted the cyber cell. DCP Crime and Cybercrime Ashish Srivastav said that the cyber team swung into action on receiving the complaint and returned the money to the victim after freezing the fraud transaction.

The cyber team took action

Jaideep breathed a sigh of relief after receiving the money and also thanked the cyber team. DCP Ashish Srivastav said that people need to be very careful and under no circumstances should share their bank details with anyone. Although Jaideep got his money back, there are many people whose hard-earned money is stolen by cybercriminals and have to visit the police station for days.
