    Within days of the Congress taking power, fraudsters have started scamming people by promising the party’s six guarantees during the Assembly elections. They are using digital technology and QR codes to issue fake guarantee cards in exchange for a fee. These cards are being presented as similar to ration cards or Aadhar cards.

    To get the fake guarantee cards, people are asked to scan a QR code with their mobile numbers, which leads them to an online application. They have to fill in their details, including their name and mobile number, and those who are interested will receive printed cards with their information.
