'Money transferred by mistake': Beware, it's a trap of fraudsters
Ankit Tuli, a resident of Karnail Singh Nagar, was a bit surprised when he received a WhatsApp call from an unknown number with the caller claiming that he had mistakenly transferred Rs 1,000 into his e-wallet. The caller even shared a screenshot which confirmed that the payment was made to him. The caller humbly requested him to send back Rs 1,000 and shared a QR code for the same. As the caller sounded genuine, Ankit decided to transfer him Rs 1,000. But soon after scanning the QR code in order to return Rs 1,000, he received a message that Rs 23,000 has been transferred from his account.
