The woman did a tweet and 64 thousand rupees were stolen, have you also made this mistake?

new Delhi. The use of social media platforms has become common today. If you want news or answer to any question, everyone uses platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. By the way, it is very beneficial. But sometimes it also proves to be very harmful. You always keep an eye on hackers. One such incident has come to light in which hackers stole Rs 64,000 from a woman. This woman shared the details of her upcoming train ticket on social media.

Allegedly lost Rs 64,000 from a resident of Vile Parle Mumbai. The woman complained about this on IRCTC. As per a report, MN Meena had booked three tickets on the IRCTC site to travel to Bhuj on January 14. However, the seats were all booked. So he got RAC seat. The woman was confused whether her ticket would be confirmed or not, so she posted her train ticket details and mobile number on Twitter and sought help from IRCTC.

After some time the woman got a call and she introduced herself as the customer care officer of IRCTC. The phone was picked up by the woman’s son, so the hacker sent a link to the woman’s phone and asked her to pay Rs 2.

Meena and her son both thought that IRCTC had contacted them as they posted their complaint on Twitter. Without much thought, his son filled the phone and paid Rs.2. After this he got alerts of back-to-back payments from his account. In this way Rs 64,011 was stolen from his account.

The woman wrote on Twitter, “My son completely trusted the caller as he complained on IRCTC’s twitter page. The caller claimed that he was from IRCTC customer care and promised to confirm our ticket. Paid Rs 2 on his request and then Rs 64,011 was withdrawn from our account.

According to the police, the hackers stole Meena’s bank account and UPI security code details through a phishing link and then went unnoticed.

How to Avoid:
We have been giving you such suggestions earlier also that you should not give your account details to anyone. Also, don’t pay on any link on someone’s request. The way cyber fraud happened with Meena, you can also become a victim of it if you do not take precautions. Do not pay on phishing link or any unknown link. Beware of such messages or calls. Also, do not share your personal details online.
