News Verification: Today most people have a Smartphone in their hands, due to which they are connected to some social media platform. Although it has many benefits, some chaotic elements are also active on these platforms, who keep searching for a way to cheat people in some way or the other. Now the Press Information Bureau of the Government of India has issued an alert regarding this.

PIB has released a video, which explains in detail the methods being used by the thugs. With him, PIB wrote that when the 5 crore lottery winning message comes on your phone, it feels great to see and hear, but be careful. This is a trap laid by thugs. Do not share your personal information due to this, otherwise, you may get cheated.

Avoid these methods Usually, thugs will first send a message or email to your phone. In this message, it would have been said to win big prizes. Although sensible people ignore it, many people fall into the trap of thugs. In most messages, you will be asked to call a number. Whenever you call on him, all your information will be taken. Some thugs will ask you for OTP in the name of sending money to the bank, while some will ask for money in lieu of depositing tax on the prize money. As soon as you send them money, they will stop picking up your phone.
