Be careful if the person on the other end of the phone claims to be a government official. You have been asked to fill up the KYC of your phone number. The scammers are sending a URL link to complete the KYC. Clicking on that link will be dangerous.

Scammers are coming up with new ways to cheat people. But this time the method is different. They are calling and identifying themselves as government officials. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has issued a warning in this regard.

TRAI is sending SMS. Which says, “TRAI never sends any message or call to verify/disconnect mobile number/report illegal activity. Beware of such messages/calls coming in the name of TRAI. It is better not to believe if someone calls or messages in the name of TRAI.”

Cyber ​​scammers are calling people in the name of TRAI and asking them to verify their phone numbers. If something like this happens to you, complain immediately.
