With Valentine’s Day closing in, several new forms of fraud are emerging every day on social media which has led to multiple citizens getting robbed by cybercriminals in the digital world.

Currently, a message related to Valentine's Day is going viral on social media. According to the message, if you answer one question, you will get many gifts including a mobile phone. However, the message, which went viral on social media is fake. Moreover, Mumbai Cyber Police has also appealed to the citizens not to fall prey to any fraudulent links on social media.

In addition, the cyber police wing of the Mumbai Police has issued an advisory regarding a message, suspected to be a phishing attack, making the rounds on various social media and messenger platforms offering a free stay at Taj hotels.



The viral message reads "I received a gift card from Taj Hotel and got a chance to stay in Taj for 7 days for free". However, this message is followed by a fraudulent link which could steal data like passwords and bank details from the system or phone once clicked.

Furthermore, in view of the situation, the Taj Hotels through its Twitter handle have issued a clarification on the message doing the rounds, stating that "It has come to our notice that a website has been promoting a Valentine’s Day initiative, offering a Taj Experiences Gift Card via WhatsApp. We would like to inform that the Hotels/IHCL has not offered any such promotion. We request to take note of this and exercise due caution."
