Trivandrum: The Police while creating awareness on credit card fraud said Fraudsters are active in promising to organize large sums of money through credit cards. Credit cardholders are attracted by advertising for this.
If you are attracted to the ad and contact the scam team, the scammer’s representative will come immediately. Then card number, CVV number, mobile number, etc.
Information will be required. When in doubt, they evacuate. It is common for the phone to be picked up and blocked later.
