Kaun Banega Crorepati hosted by superstar Amitabh Bachchan has been a game-changer over the years and has been winning the hearts of the people. The show which is known for giving away prize money on basis of personal intelligence is amongst the most popular shows in the world.
However now few people are misusing its popularity and committing fraud by running a scam around 25 lakh rupees Jackpot. Delhi Police’s Cyber Crime Cell has taken to their social media to issue an advisory about it.
Speaking to TOI, Bhisham Singh, DCP, Crime, said, “Every year when Kaun Banega Crorepati goes on air, these fraudsters also become active. They randomly select numbers and inform the victim that their number was selected in a lucky draw conducted by KBC and that they won a cash prize worth “2-25 lakh. And to claim the amount, a certain processing fee needs to be deposited.”
In the further report, Delhi Police has requested to beware of 25 Lakh promise by fraudsters as in last six months a lot of people have received calls through WhatsApp and messages congratulating them for winning 25 lakhs and promising them a chance to meet Big B.
Talking to the same publication Anyesh Roy, DCP, Cyber Crime, informs them that they have now included KBC lottery frauds in their cybersecurity awareness campaigns, and are asking people to be aware and not trust any such claims. They have been reciving several complaints from people saying that they get such messages or calls. If the amount is small, then the district police handles the case.”
