Qryptal's Secure QR Codes: A Shield Against Document Tampering
Courier services and e-commerce platforms have experienced an exponential rise in their use and popularity over the past few years. Unfortunately, this expansion has also opened up new avenues for fraudsters, who exploit these systems to execute scams. Recently, a scam involving reputed courier companies like FedEx and Blue Dart surfaced, wherein the fraudsters used counterfeit letters and phone calls to con unsuspecting individuals.
The Modus Operandi of Courier Scams
In this particular scam, individuals were contacted by a person pretending to be a representative from FedEx, Blue Dart, or other courier companies. They were informed about a parcel linked to their name, allegedly confiscated by the police due to the presence of illegal substances.
Further, these individuals were video-called by someone impersonating a police official who presented an official-looking letter. This letter, supposedly from the ‘Financial Department Mumbai Crime Branch and Central Bureau of Investigation’, asked the victim to transfer a certain sum of money for the release of the parcel. The presence of personal details, like Aadhar number, in these letters made them appear legitimate, compelling the victim to transfer the money immediately.
