Odisha government has asked Netizens to exercise caution during all financial transactions because of the rise in cyber crimes with fraudsters impersonating senior officers online to raise funds from people.
According to the reports, the government issued a statement to say that cybercriminals are using photos of senior bureaucrats on WhatsApp and other messaging platforms on social media, asking people to pay bills. It has come to notice that a fake telephone number 9315641784′ is using the photo of Chief Secretary Suresh Chandra Mohapatra and asking people to pay bills or remit some money.
Earlier, similar messages were sent to people from a fake profile of Development Commissioner-cum-Additional Chief Secretary P K Jena. He had filed a complaint, but the scammers were yet to be traced.
The government want to inform people that there is no such mobile phone number for the chief secretary. The chief secretary never asks anyone to pay any bill or remit money to any account.
