In the name of cash on delivery, nowadays people are being fooled and money is being looted from them. So do not pay attention to any link, SMS and call. Always check your product after opening it.
Online shopping has become very secure now. Cases of rigging are now seen very less than before. Like earlier, if you used to order a phone from online, then a brick would come out in your box. But now this does not happen and the goods reach your home safely. But there are still many such scammers who are defrauding people in new fraud ways. Cash on delivery is now new in this.
In this, you get a call in which the person says that he is talking to the delivery executive. After this, he asks you for money regarding your cash on delivery order. The scam here is that even if you haven’t ordered anything, the delivery executive gives you a parcel and asks you for money.
Apart from this, you can also get a fake message from the courier company and you can be asked for money by clicking on the link. As online shopping is booming in India. In the same way, these scammers are also fraud with people in new ways. Scammers here assume that someone will definitely fall into their trap. Scammers come to this point that, if you are not at home, they can also ask for money from your neighbors and family members and can deliver fake parcels by entering your name.
Don’t make this mistake even by mistake
Let us tell you that if a scammer calls you and gives any such information, then ignore it completely and do not pick up the phone again. At the same time, once in the app, you must also check the purchase history so that you will know whether you have ordered anything.
There is another scam in the list called SMS scam. In this, you will get an SMS from the delivery person in which information will be given about not delivering the package. But now after the lockdown and corona are over, the delivery partner will give you information about the package delivery and will ask you for personal information in return. After this, he will deliberately delay your package further and then in the end will ask you for payment for early delivery. After this, as soon as you make the payment, you will be caught in its trap. So do not trust such links, SMS or calls by mistake and always stay safe.
