A retired teacher lost Rs. 21 lakh after tapping on a malicious link received on WhatsApp in Andhra Pradesh.
The retired teacher told the police that she was constantly getting messages stating that money has been deducted from her account.
When she contacted the bank about these deductions, the bank official told her that account has been hacked and all the money saved in the account is gone.
Sending malicious links and extorting out the details of the users' bank accounts and stealing money has become a common scam.
It is important not to click on any suspicious links or unnecessary messages that are received on WhatsApp.
