E-mail from pal seeking money could be fraud

Did you get a mail from your close friend, who was in dire need of money, as he/she got stuck in a mishap, that too in no man’s land? If your answer is in the affirmative, then don’t rush or panic and try to bail out your friend by sending the money.

Your friend’s personal mail account could have been hacked to generate the mail in order to fleece you. The Central Crime Station (CCS) officials warn you to crosscheck the facts before jumping into action.

‘’If you find e-mails like these in your inbox, don’t believe them.

They could be fraud messages sent by a trickster to cheat you. If you want to help financially, discuss the issue with your friend and do verify the exact location and position of the sender with his close relatives,’’ said CCS DCP RS Praveen Kumar in a statement.

Another oft-used modus operandi is by sending mails or short message service (SMS) saying that the recipient has won a UK lottery.

The officials also inform that UK lotteries are not sent through email or SMSes.

‘’There were many cases in which the prize money was mentioned and the recipient persuaded to send some money for processing.

One should not send any money for processing,’’ Praveen Kumar informed. Saying that e-mails and personal information should not be shared, he said it was always better to delete mails from unknown recipients.
