    A woman from Cyberabad received a call from an unknown number claiming to be an officer of the Maharashtra police. The caller said she was involved in money laundering and had a warrant pending against her. The victim was forced to stay on a skype video call all night and was threatened with dire consequences. She ended up transferring Rs 60 lakh to the fraudster’s account before realizing it was a scam. She then called the cybercrime helpline number 1930.

    The helpline staff quickly uploaded the transaction details on the CFCFRMS portal and alerted SBI, where the amount was transferred. Within an hour, they managed to put a hold on the entire amount to prevent further loss for the victim. The Telangana State Cyber Security Bureau (TSCSB) received the complaint on May 15 and took immediate action to assist the victim and investigate the fraud case.
