Guwahati: The Nagaland government has alerted the public to cautions of the widespread operation of cyber crimes, and fraudsters and urged everyone to remain vigilant and follow basic cyber financial hygiene.
The state govt through DIPR informed in a statement, “Never open emails/messaged from unknown sources and never download unverified apps. Also whenever there is solicitation or advertisements or information regarding easy income, returns, loans, lottery, prize money, cash back etc. which appear attractive, one should be vigilant and not be lured by such scams.”
Citing some of the recent frauds unearthed in the country, the government stated that in one such scam, cyber crooks were arrested from different parts of the country for duping thousands of people by creating a fake State Bank of India (SBI) app similar to the SBI Yono and duping people by making them download the app through Phishing (fraud emails/messages claiming to be genuine to steal personal information like password, bank details etc. or to install malwares) and then impersonating fake bank employees asking KYC update details.
