An elderly person from Pune wanted to transfer money. He was not able to do it and the UPI application showed the server down message. As he was not able to transfer the money he thought of calling the helpline number of the UPI app and searched for the same online. After finding the number, he called up. The person who picked up the call sent him an SMS and asked to download the link in the SMS. After downloading the link, the victim was asked to share the number which was generated. As soon as he shared the number, Rs 11.22 Lakh was deducted from the victim's account in 15 transactions. The victim was made to download the remote access app.
