She believes that the call was genuine and she clicked on the given link. There is the one application where she should be downloaded into her mobile phone due to payment. As par instructions, she made a payment of Rs2. However, on 9th November she received notification indicating that she debited Rs 95000 then Rs 5000 in her bank account. The victim made a complaint at Nerul station.
In such cases, firstly always remember that particular company’ individual not contacting the buyer person and asking about the bank details and as an individual you have the responsibility to not deliver your personal details about anyone.

If you receive a message about delivery, immediately contact the e-commerce helpline. Trusted sites like Amazon, Myntra, Mesho have their own helpline number in their official app or website. Always shop from trusted potrals.
