Don't let this fraud of Rs 20,000 happen to you, protect yourself in this way

With the increase in digital payments in the country, digital scams have also increased. RBI itself believes that there has been a 700% growth in digital fraud. These days a new scam of Rs 20,000 is spreading. Know about it...

Since the advent of the UPI payment system, digital payments have become easier in the country. It has also spread far and wide. But along with this, fraud in online payments has also increased. Scammers keep coming up with new ways every day to dupe people of their hard-earned money. For example, now a new fraud of Rs 20,000 is going on.

Yes, these days people are being cheated of up to Rs 20,000 at a time through UPI. For this, scammers have invented a completely new method. Let's understand about it…

20 thousand will be given in place of 200

Now the scammers send people Rs 200.00 on their UPI account. After that people suddenly get a call from an unknown number saying that he has transferred Rs 20,000 by mistake. He has to make an emergency payment somewhere or you mistakenly read the message of Rs 200.00 credit as 20,000 and transfer Rs 20,000 again to the other person. In this way, only Rs 200 comes to your account, but Rs 20,000 goes away. In fact, there is a direct loss of Rs 19,800.

Such calls come during the day

A pattern has also been observed among such scammers. Such calls are often made to people during the day or at such times when they are very busy. Therefore, they get confused in reading the message of Rs 200.00 properly and then they get duped of Rs 20,000.

How to avoid such scams?

The most effective way to avoid such scams is that first of all you should not panic or get disturbed by the call. Secondly, if the other person says that he has transferred money to your account, then first check your bank balance. Only then return any payment.

Recently, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had informed in its annual report that there has been a 700 percent increase in the number of digital frauds in the country. While their number was 9,046 in the financial year 2022-23, it has increased to 36,075 in 2023-24.
