IANS 16 January 2023
A man in Lucknow was allegedly duped of Rs 1.49 lakhs in an online fraud when he dialled the customer care number to find out about a cancelled flight.
 
This is the 10th such incident that occurred in the last three months, where the victim was duped after dialling a customer care number from the search engine.
 
In the latest case, victim Amit Gupta had to return to Lucknow from Mumbai by a flight on January 9 but the flight was cancelled later.
 
Gupta called up the customer care to enquire about the same.
 
Later, he got a call from an unidentified mobile number. The caller asked Gupta to download Anydesk app on his mobile phone.
 
He was then asked to respond to some details.
 
A short while later, the money was deducted from his account.
 
Gupta has lodged a complaint with the police and investigation is on.
