According to cyber police spokesperson, on January 16, 2021, a complaint was received at Cyber police station Jammu by one person namely Maidul Islam that he received a call on December 7, 2020 from unknown fraudsters, pretending themselves from Max Insurance Company. They lured the complainant by offering him a bonus amount and subsequently convinced him to deposit a fee to claim the due insurance bonus and eventually duped him of an amount of Rs 10 lakh in multiple transactions.
