Cases of online fraud in India have increased rapidly during the lockdown. Recently, the cyber cell of Maharashtra issued an alert, urging people not to click on the message or email from a company called Mont Blanc. Let us tell you that Mount Blanc is a world-famous pen manufacturer and the price of this company’s pen is in millions. Hackers have duped people by taking advantage of the name of this company. So in such a situation, it is necessary to identify fake websites and emails or messages.
First of all, before opening any e-mail and website, check the spelling of the text written on it. Usually fake e-mails and spelling of words on the site are misspelled. Also, the grammar also has many mistakes. At the same time, there is no such mistake in real site and e-mail.
Hackers take the name of famous companies
Often hackers try to trick people by resorting to the names of world-famous companies. If you have also received an e-mail or message from a company, do not forget to click on the link given in it. Let us tell you that companies do not send direct e-mail or message to people.
This is also a way to identify fake sites and emails. Mouse over any matching link before opening it. Now you will see the original URL and hyperlink as a popup. With this you will be able to identify fake websites.
Do not share personal information
Many times hackers send e-mails or messages for the purpose of cheating by resorting to the names of famous companies. Be alert in such a situation. In any case, do not provide your password, personal data, and debit or credit card information. With this you will be able to protect yourself from fraud.
