Fraudsters are using social media like WhatsApp and Telegram as a tool to cheat people and extort money.

These calls have become more common over the past few weeks. Many Indians have reported receiving calls and messages from international numbers on Twitter and other social media platforms, including WhatsApp. These calls and messages mostly come from unknown numbers and people are confused by these calls.

1) Don’t answer any call from unknown me on WhatsApp If you get a call from an international number you are not familiar with yet, it is better to avoid answering it. When you respond to such calls or messages there is a high chance that you will fall into a scam and risk losing money.
