In view of the fact that various types of cyber crimes are on the increase in the recent months, people are advised to be more vigilant before answering SMSs and mobile calls.
Of late, mobile users are getting SMSs in the name of girls, claiming to be in the age group of 19 to 24, luring them by stating that she is alone at home, getting bored and want to ‘have a chat with you’. ‘Dost, I am waiting to have a chat with you. Please call me on phone No. ——-‘, says one message. Another says that ‘I am missing you a lot. Please dial my No. —- and talk to me and share pleasures’. Yet another message, shocking to many, particularly the elderly people and those who believe in some ethical and moral values, says: Hi, I am Anaimika. 23 years. Wanna get on me? I am Waiting. Dial now to (some number). Girls Wait’.
Reports in the newspapers show how some gullible people were duped by fraudsters in the name of jobs, matrimony, enticements, etc. So, people in general, particularly youngsters, are advised to be careful while answering such messages. There is every possibility of the cheats engaging you in sweet conversation, promise gifts and pleasures, and elicit your particulars like your name, address, bank account, credit card number, etc. and then dupe you in many ways.
