In Sambhal district, cyber thugs are extorting money from people by creating fake police IDs on Facebook. Cyber thugs cloned the official PRO cell account of the police. After this, the thugs started demanding money from the people by cloning the Facebook account operated by the SP of the district. When the news of cloning reached the SP, he warned the people by posting a post on FB with the original ID.
The special thing is that this is not the first time this has happened. Even before this smart cyber thugs have harassed the police. But, still the police did not take any lesson. Police have failed to stop these incidents of cyber fraud.
Used to call earlier, now let’s clone the account
In the Corona era, the incidents of cyber fraud are breaking all the previous records. Earlier, thugs used to make calls posing as bank employees. Then by taking account details, they used to withdraw money from the bank account. But after cloning people’s accounts on Facebook for the last one and a half years, money is being cheated from their relatives and acquaintances on Messenger. In these cases, the police has never been able to go ahead with filing reports. These cases are handed over to the cyber cell. The investigation of which goes in cold storage over time.
Police is now appealing to people to avoid fraud by putting information about cloning on social media.
