Police warn against online fraud

Amidst increasing cases of online fraud in the district, Jammu and Kashmir police on Wednesday asked people to remain aware and vigilant against online cheaters.

An advisory issued by SSP Rajouri Yougal Manhas said that a number of cases of online cheating have come to fore in Rajouri district in the last few months wherein people have been looted in the name of lottery win and other such fake assurances.

He said that police have started investigation in all the cases wherein complaints have been registered “and we will take the investigation of all the cases to a logical conclusion”.

The SSP said that more people in the district are becoming the easy target of the fraudsters due to lack of awareness.  

“As such, people in general are advised not to fall prey in the hands of online cheaters who lure in the name of lottery win or other such practices,” the officer said in the advisory. The police officer also advised people not to share their ATM card number, PIN or OTP with anyone claiming to be a bank official.
