Jammu: Your electricity will be cut off, new trick of cheating, be aware of such messages





For your information, let us tell you that dear consumer, your electricity will be disconnected from the electricity office tonight at 9.30 pm. Because, your last month’s bill is not updated. Please immediately contact the electricity office on 6392832038. Thank you!’ This is the message many people received on WhatsApp in Udhampur’s Chinaini town on Sunday. The logo of JKPDC was also displayed on the profile of the WhatsApp account of this number. From Sunday morning till afternoon many people were sent such messages asking them to deposit electricity bills. Along with this, for not doing so, a warning was given to cut off the electricity. Some people were puzzled for a while by this message. Some people tried to contact the concerned number, but the phone was disconnected as soon as they dialed. Then many people contacted the electricity department personnel and officials. Got information from them that the department is not sending any such message. Avoid them and ignore them.

Targeting by downloading applications from Google Play Store

According to the information, the number from which people received the message was first called. Then no one picked up the phone. Later got a call back from the same number and told that he is speaking from head office of electricity dept Jammu. Then he instructed to install an application Electricity Update Quick Support from Google Play Store on his phone. Then he started telling the further process. However, people were alert, so no one followed his instructions. It is being told that he gets his application installed in people’s mobile and hacks the mobile. Due to this, the thug gets all the personal information present in the mobile and also the information of the banks. With this he empties people’s accounts.

People’s demand, administration should pay attention to this type of fraud

Along with this, Chinaini Municipal President Manik Gupta and residents of the town, Sahil Kumar, Atul, Rohit Gupta, etc. said that many times people get disturbed by such messages, and without thinking immediately fall into the tricks of the thugs and follow their instructions. start following. Due to this they become victims of fraud. In such a situation, the administration needs to pay attention to this. There is a need to catch those people who cheat people by sending such messages.
