Lottery messages started when help was sought
Pankaj’s elderly father, who lives in Beta 2 of Greater Noida, succumbed to corona, seeking help from people on social media with a phone number to treat him. All the messages of getting lotteries started coming near their phones for help. If you called the message from which the messages were coming, they got busy or there was no response after the bell went off.
The father is being treated in a private hospital. When Pankaj discussed with his cyber expert friend, he told that in this hour of disaster, cyber thugs are looking for an opportunity to cheat those seeking help.
Help sought for elderly, people sent obscene messages

She said, ‘When the world is helping people with themselves to avoid this epidemic, some people started sending obscene messages to their numbers.’ Manju, who is engaged in serving the elderly, says the first priority is to get out of the epidemic, after that we will teach a lesson to such people as well.
Remadecivir injection was sought
Monica of Greater Noida called for help on RWA’s group on social media, seeking remadecivir injections for her husband battling Corona. Many people posted their message on their Facebook account. Messages were received to all the people claiming to have injected Remedisvir, the phone was stopped when the number was called or the number did not work. Two days later, the messages of cyber fraudsters started coming to them.
Women whose incidents of sending objectionable messages have occurred on the phone, fearlessly report it to the police. It is not necessary to give information to the police station. They should send the phone numbers of those people and the messages or pictures sent by them to my phone number 8595902513. Legal action will be taken against them by tracing wrongdoers on the basis of phone number, keeping their identity a secret.
