Online payment wallets have always been the target of scammers and fraudsters.
Paytm wallet has one of the highest users bases in India is also not spared from this. Paytm is available in 11 Indian languages and offers services like mobile recharges, utility bill payments, travel, movies, and events bookings as well as in-store payments at grocery stores, etc. with the Paytm QR code.
But recently as the number of users has increased so scammers are finding ways and means to dupe the users. Due to an increase in complaints of Paytm, it’s founder has released an official announcement regarding the same. Recent Paytm KYC fraud from scammers have targeted many users.
Scamsters are asking the targeted customer to download a mobile or desktop application to facilitate the KYC process. These applications include among others Anydesk, Quicksupport and TeamViewer.
Once these fraudsters get hold of the pin generated by these applications they get remote access to the victim’s device where subsequently in a series of two to four transactions, the fraudster siphons off funds from the victim’s bank account linked with the mobile wallet.
” We would like to inform all our customers that Paytm’s KYC procedure does not get done via remote desktops apps. Also, Paytm does not call customers to get their KYC done via phone, nor does the customer need to install any new app for KYC,” Gupta said.”
And for those users who have received any message or call with respect to the payment wallet, if you feel they are suspicious kindly report the same to the nearest Cyber cell.
This type of scam is one of it’s the type and scammers will always find new ways to dupe the users.
One of the most ignored thing by customers while shopping online is Return and refund policy. We complain regarding the return not being accepted by the online shopping platforms. Most of our time is spent on online shopping sites browsing the products or checking payment or delivery options. But we hardly take out time to go through the return and refund policy.
Ignoring return and refund policy can be one of the biggest mistakes. There is no standard return policy followed by all websites. The website might have the same or different products which can be returned or can not be returned within the stipulated time.
According to a survey, 27% of consumers are put off ordering something online in the first place because they do not want the hassle of returning it if it is not right.
All the information you have is the product description written on the product page. On the basis of trust, shoppers shop online. In physical stores, you can ask the shopkeeper whether this product can be returned or not but on online shopping websites, you need to check the list provided by the seller on the return page.
It is even recommended that you should not shop from websites which do not have a return policy or if the policy sounds doubtful as they might have intentions to cheat the customers.
Among many memorable @CafeCoffeeDay
– this one touched me.
2010, I was traveling with my toddler son. Had forgotten to carry milk. I asked CCD to fill a bottle for me, charge me for 2 coffees. They refused to bill it. RIP #VGSiddhartha, your brand will live long. pic.twitter.com/eAalRNoYkO
While making online purchase reviews and rating play a very important role. But the thing is, not every review or rating is genuine or real. But it is true that Reviews and rating influence your decision-making process.
We tend to check reviews not only for brands which are not known to us as we do not know how it will come out once we receive the delivery but also for brands with which we are familiar, to know if it is genuine, it is as per your requirement or not, it is for the purpose for which you are buying, etc.. It is proved that online rating and reviews are checked by people as they consider them as personal recommendation from buyers.
Reviews on online shopping websites or marketplace product page can be described in two parts:
Reviews about the online shopping platform
Review about the product
For e.g someone ordered a mixer grinder from any online shopping website and when it was received, it was broken. So there could be review regarding the seller that broken product was delivered or it could have been broken during shipping and delivery or like reviews regarding the brand that it not worth the price. So you should understand what response you are trying to find out from the review. Below is review of Juicer on a leading online shopping marketplace:
There are fake reviews and rating also on these online shopping websites, so who writes them:
Robots or AI are doing these jobs on behalf of sellers
Freelancer writes reviews on online shopping websites like Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal etc… for sellers or brands
Fake reviews exist on social media or blogs/forum like Mouthshut.com, Twitter, Facebook
So, to crack the code, how to clear the clutter and read real reviews and use them in your decision-making process.
How to spot fake reviews on Online shopping websites:
Trust your instinct, this is the most important thing. Is the review sound too good/ bad to be true.
Watch out for generic names and/or photo-less profiles.
Look for verified purchases, use sort by the option, also look for reviews with images.
Look for phrase repetition. “Look through several reviews and see if any words or phrases are repeated in different reviews.
If in doubt, most of the online shopping marketplace have an option where you can reach out to the reviewer.
But don’t worry as you are not alone who is fighting to stop these fake reviews. This unethical bad review technique can be devastating for a business, especially on Amazon. The website is dealing with a serious counterfeit problem, so it has a few automated systems in place to protect buyers from fraud. If a product gets a lot of bad reviews in a short period, then the person who’s selling that product will get suspended from Amazon.
Have you ever thought of accessing the websites or communicating with friends online without being spied by the search engine, websites or cookies? Then Dark web can help you.
But the question is what is dark web, can we access them safely, are dark web available in the regional language, are dark web available on mobile, how can we access them?

It uses the Internet but requires specific software, configurations, or authorization to access. The dark web forms a small part of the deep web, the part of the Web not indexed by web search engines, although sometimes the term deep web is mistakenly used to refer specifically to the dark web”.
So it means the websites on the dark web are not read by the search engine ( like Google, Bing etc.) and you need special software, configuration and authorization to use them.
The dark web has a collection of websites that exist on the encripted network that can not be accessed by traditional search engines or browser.
