Criminals are Changing Their Patterns as More Focus on Cybercrimes

As per history sheeters, criminals are putting more focus on cybercrimes instead of regular crimes like physical fraud, loot, and dacoity.

In the high-tech era, the method of cybercrime has also changed.  Earlier, miscreants used to commit fraud, loot, and dacoity by intimidating and threatening people with the help of weapons, but now they are targeting people with the help of new technology and electronic devices.  They are easily withdrawing their hard-earned money from their bank accounts and are also escaping from the police.

These cyber fraudsters are so clever that they come to know about the withdrawal of money from the account only when an SMS is received on their mobile regarding the amount being deducted from the account.
