Let’s talk about this latest case, which happened with an elderly person living in Pune. We keep an imaginary name for these elders. Radheshyam.
‘Your sim card may be locked’
Radheshyam got a call from a person and told that he is speaking to the telecom company whose sim he is using and wants to give them a very important information. Radheshyam had no idea that fraud was going to happen to him. He asked the caller to share the information. The thug said, ‘Sir, your SIM card may be switched off soon, as it has not been verified. If you do not get the verification done within a day, then your SIM will be permanently closed. After hearing this, Radhey Shyam felt that perhaps his number would really be closed.

Now Radheshyam said that it is okay, he himself will go and get the verification done tomorrow itself. The thug got a little uncomfortable on this, he felt that if he (Radheshyam) himself goes, then the pole will be exposed and he will not be able to do the fraud he wants to do. Now the fraudster (thug) said, ‘You don’t need to go anywhere yourself. I am sending you a link, by clicking on which you have to pay only 11 rupees. If you do this then your verification will be done. Radheshyam felt it right to do so, as it would take a long time to go to and from the market.
Phone hacked and blown away Rs 6 lakh
Now that thug sent a link to Radheshyam ji. Radheshyam opened the link but he could not make the payment from it. After this the thug sent him another link. This link was working. After opening this link, the whole phone went under the control of the thug. The thugs withdrew 6 lakh 25 thousand rupees from Radheshyam’s account without any time. When the old man came to know that his account had been cleared, he understood that this was not a help, but a fraud.
