Scams like “earn ₹10,000/ day” will leave the victim in a devastating state, which comes from Facebook and other Social media platforms. It’s one of the cruelest ways to attract someone’s attention to getting trapped.
These fake scams are made with the name of big companies intentionally to make the victim follow the trap without any doubt. Even IT Experts get conned by the conman online for easy and fast money.
In the previous year, 815 cyberfraud money laundering cases were reported in the state. Till this year’s April, cases surpassed 438.
These traps are established via social media advertisements and unapproved lending apps from the Reserve Bank.

How will you lose money?
- Advertisement saying you can make a lot of money each day. You will be given an assignment when you click the link.
- To deposit the money, if you are successful, you must provide the bank account number.
- Even rating an English film will get you Rs 50 for the effort.
- Anytime is a good time to provide the rating. Money will flow appropriately.

- Also exploited for fraud is the OLX app.
Here, Loan Apps that the Reserve Bank rejects are another hazard. For obscene interest, money will be deposited into the account. The payback schedule will alter if it is postponed by one day.
