'Women are called and blackmailed if they are caught watching porn videos'; police with warning to be vigilant against these fraud groups

whatsapp-

There have been many incidents of cyber fraud through video and mobile calls and messages in our country. The Kerala Police has issued a warning through a social media post to be alert to the latest type of scam. The police have issued a warning against groups that blackmail women through WhatsApp calls from abroad.

Calls come indicating that it has been noticed that you have been watching obscene videos and that you are under police surveillance. Those making such calls identify themselves as cyber DYSPs. The police clarified that women get scared from the call and are asked to pay money to avoid the case, and the only thing to do is to avoid falling into this kind of fraud.

Facebook post of Kerala Police

Beware of groups who blackmail women by calling them on WhatsApp from abroad.
Answering unknown international WhatsApp calls should be avoided completely. Many women have lost money believing these fake calls. Those making such calls identify themselves as cyber DYSPs. These people inform that your phone is under the surveillance of the police and they have received information that you are watching obscene videos. These people threaten by saying that they will be called for questioning. The women, who are scared by this, are called in the following days and asked to pay money if they want to avoid the case.

The way out of this is simple - don't accept calls from unknown foreign numbers. Be extremely vigilant against all types of cyber fraud. Report suspicious incidents to the police.
