A young woman who was lured by the promise of an online job with a huge salary ended up losing Rs 1 lakh to the criminals. Know the secret that will stop the criminals.

A young woman who was lured by promises of an online job with a huge salary ended up losing over a million rupees to fraudsters. The woman did exactly what no one should ever do when it comes to dealing with strangers online and messages received on phones. The woman was duped as much as 1.13 lakh in Nagpur by scammers who promised him an online job with huge salary. This was revealed by the police on Saturday.

The 23-year-old alleged in her complaint that a text message was sent to her phone on December 4 by an unknown person. The sender of the message claimed to be a project manager for an e-commerce company. The woman was offered an online job and promised an attractive salary, PTI said.

The modus operandi

The promised salary was huge 5,000 a day! The message instructed the recipient to click on the link provided in the message. In doing so, he opened an online page. On the page was a request to register there. Without this step, the process of providing him with the work could not be completed. Registration also required him to pay a certain amount of money.

She paid and signed up but the requests for more money kept coming afterward and the woman kept paying until she finally realized it was a scam and no job was forthcoming.

She went to the police and a case of cheating was registered against the fraudsters under Article 420 of the CPI and the relevant provisions of the Information Technology Act. Police said the investigation was ongoing to identify the culprits.

Know the secret to stopping online scams

As India increasingly goes digital and working from home becomes more and more popular, criminals have also started looking for victims to steal money through cyber crime. However, people can help themselves from falling victim to online scams. Here’s what you need to focus on:

1. Do not click on any links sent to you by strangers. Links forwarded by your friends and family to websites you don’t know should also not be clicked. Most likely, the links were sent by cyber criminals and no one should click on them.

2. If you click on such a link and end up on a website that resembles that of a very large e-commerce website, bank or other very popular social entity, you must be very careful as this could very well be a fake website which has been designed in such a way that it looks exactly like the official website of real companies and banks.

3. Don’t be greedy. So, do not believe the promises of job offers by strangers who have very attractive salaries but which are quite unrealistic. In this case, 5000 a day should have instantly raised suspicion.

4. Do not make online payments on websites that require you to insert your bank username and password. Always check the company URL first. Check if there is a padlock symbol and the URL contains an “s”. For example, https://. The ‘s’ indicates that the connection is secure. If it’s without ‘s, like this, ‘http://, then it’s not secure and you should avoid it.

5. Always check for spelling and grammar mistakes in the text written on these bogus websites. You will find that the language is extremely poor which no legit website will allow.
