Police warn residents hit by Covid-19 of online fraudsters

Noida/Ghaziabad: In a desperate search for the Remdevisir injection for his ailing relative in Ghaziabad, Noida (extension) resident Raghu Singh recently put out an SOS message on social media. Raghu heaved a sigh of relief when someone reached out to him, promising to arrange the jab that is used to treat Covid patients. In advance, he transferred Rs 10,000 through a digital wallet but two vials of the drug never came.


Last Saturday, Harshita Sambhu, a nurse at a private hospital, transferred Rs 6,000 as a token amount towards the delivery of a cylinder for a relative in Noida, but soon realised that she was duped. Harshita got the number of the fraudster, who identified himself as an oxygen agent, from social media. She lodged a complaint at the Expressway station.
