Cyber Crime: Shortcode texture is a new weapon of cyber thugs, thus becoming a victim of mobile scams
Raipur. Cyber Crime: With the increasing use of internet which is becoming prevalent among the people, thugs have invented many new ways of cheating through it.
Until the day comes, they come up with new ways through which they can make people victims of fraud. One such new method has saved the swindlers these days. Thugs are making people victims of fraud by sending shortcodes on mobiles.
What is a shortcode, how are you cheating?
With this short coat, they hack the mobile number by saying that cyber thugs fasten the network on the call or dial *401*10 digit mobile number by giving any other reason. Cyber thugs use * OR # codes and easily scam people.
If the number is dialed with a short code like this, then all the calls of the concerned person will be diverted and start reaching the thugs. After losing the number, the swindlers will swindle your relatives, friends and acquaintances through the clone ID on WhatsApp by demanding money on WhatsApp. This new method of cyber thugs is very powerful and is being run with large networks. The cyber experts of the police team are also constantly trying to track such networks.
How to avoid fraud?
Do not dial any number without any information or speaking by an unknown person by putting * or #, put the two step verification code on your WhatsApp and get your SIM reshooked immediately. Raipur Police Cyber Cell is continuously running awareness campaign regarding this matter. In case of any problem, the cyber cell can be contacted on 07714247109.
