Twenty-one-year-old Chetan Chabra had no clue that his friends were sending money to a bank account assuming that it belongs to him. He got to know about it when one of his friends called him over phone and asked if he has received the money or not. A cyber fraud made a fake account of Chetan on social media platform Instagram and sent messages to his friends seeking money to address an exigency.
