KBC Lottery Scam! Pakistan using WhatsApp to dupe people

WhatsApp fraud alert! Pakistani fraudsters are looting your hard earned money from your bank account using WhatsApp.

Pakistan-based operatives are trying to trap people using the popularity of the Amitabh Bachchan-hosted show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) using several fake social media handles.

Fraudsters are sending fake KBC messages to trap individuals by calling from an unknown number telling you that you have won a lucky draw in Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC). These calls mainly come from numbers with a ‘+92’ country code, that of Pakistan.

The message says “aapke liye good news hai aapke iss number pe Kaun Banega Maha Crorepati ki Janab se Aapke is number pe 25 lakh rupay ka lottery laga hai lottery hasil karne ke liye Rana Pratap Singh se contact kare.”

Earlier, a household worker (maid) from Jammu received a call stating that she had won a lucky draw in KBC. Even though she had not participated in any such contest, the callers said that she will get Rs 25 lakh through KBC lottery! The family believed it and ended up dupped.

Watch video carefully and beware from fraudsters and duping.
