Stay safe from cyber risks: Advance fee frauds for Covid-19 tests see a rise in Madhya Pradesh | Bhopal News

BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh state cyber cell headquarters has issued a fresh advisory warning that the scammers have changed their modus operandi and are now targeting health care institutions impersonating as army personnel, posted in some distant land, while requesting to get Covid and other tests done for their family members.
In lieu of advance payment for the tests, money is transferred from your account by cyber criminals. Officers have already received couple of complaints in the last one week, one is from a prominent hospital of the city.
They are cheating in lieu of advance payment for the tests, officials say. As per the advisory scammers impersonate as army personnel while contacting hospitals, doctors and pathologies, requesting an advance booking for Covid-19 and other relevant tests for their family members on grounds that they are posted at a distant place.
For the advance payment of the tests, they ask for your payment wallet number on PHONEPE, GOOGLEPAY or PAYTM and total amount to be paid for all the tests, through WhatsApp. Their WhatsApp display picture (DP) is in army uniform further making your belief stronger, said an officer.
“In the name of verification of their account, the fraudster asks you to make transfer of Rs 5-10 to their account and immediately returns the amount to your account to gain your trust,” advisory says.
As soon as you are convinced, the fraudsters send you a reverse request of the said amount on phonepe, googlepay or paytm and request you to follow his instructions in order to receive the payment.
“Citing the Army’s rules, they ask you perform the process quickly. As soon as you click on the request and enter the UPI PIN, the said amount is withdrawn from your account instead of receiving. This type of modus has been attempted with 2 reputed hospitals of Bhopal. Similar crimes can also be attempted against service providers like CA, lawyer, medical practitioners etc,” say officials.
