Poonch, : In recent past, a number of cases related on online cheating/dumping of money have surfaced in District Rajouri wherein victims have been duped by online cheats on the name of lottery win etc.
As Per Police during Investigation of all such cases/complaints which were brought in the notice of police across the district were started on priority and many among these cases were taken to logical conclusion which include recovery of money.
However, due to lack of awareness among masses, more and more people are falling prey to the online cheats and are suffering loss of their hard earned money.
Keeping in view all this, people in general are advised not to fall prey in the hands of online cheats who lure on the name of winning of lottery or other such practices.
Alongside this, many cheats representing themselves as bank employees call on the numbers of customers and ask for ATM Pin and Card No for unlocking the bank account.
Many incidents of cheat in such practice have also come to fore wherein innocent people share their ATM Card No and ATM cash withdrawal PIN to online cheats representing themselves as bank employees.
People are therefore advised not to share their ATM card number and PIN with anyone and to inquire from concerned bank branch in case any call for bank account closure is being received.
Only awareness among people can foil the nefarious designs of such cheats preventing incidents of online cheating.
