Internet is being used more after the covid epidemic. But with this the cases of cyber fraud are also increasing. Fraudsters are looking for new ways to clear bank accounts. Fraudsters have found a new way to cheat money, in view of which the central government has alerted the people. If you use remote access software like Any Desk or Team QR, then this news is for you. These software can empty your bank account. In view of the increasing cases of fraud, the central government has advised to be careful.
In the government-run Twitter handle Cyber Dost, it has been said that people should not give access to their PC or mobile for KYC related work. Such software allows people to give control of their systems to others, which becomes the reason for banking fraud.
