As festive season has kicked in, more and more people are choosing to shop online to avail offers. However, cyber crime police says that cases of fraud related to online shopping have also started pouring in. In 2018, at least 20 cases of online shopping fraud and phishing have been recorded. “After online shopping, victims get a call saying they have won a lucky draw or coupon. The offender has details about the purchase and pretends to be from the shopping portal. Falling in the trap, the victims transfer money to individual accounts and get duped,” said S Harinath.
