Advisory against vax registration fraud

Chandigarh, February 6

The Haryana Police today cautioned citizens against miscreants who dupe people on the pretext of registering them for Covid-19 vaccination. Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order), Haryana, Navdeep Singh Virk said cyber criminals could dupe people through phone calls, emails, Whatsapp or any other social media platform by asking them their details for getting registered for the vaccine.

He said they collected personal information such as Aadhaar card number and asked people to authenticate it by sharing an OTP. The moment the OTP is given, money is siphoned off from the Aadhaar-linked bank account of people, he said.

He asked people not to entertain such calls. "Use only government-approved mobile application for vaccination," he said. — TNS
