In this cyber fraud done under the KBC lottery scheme, the fraudsters send WhatsApp messages to victims from unknown numbers (most of them starting with +92, the ISD Code of Pakistan) claiming that their mobile number has won a lottery jointly organized by Kaun Banega Crorepati. They place logos of Reliance Jio and even State Bank of India in the WhatsApp message while promising a lottery worth Rs 25 lakhs. Then they ask their target to contact some person whose number is provided in the same WhatsApp message in order to claim that lottery.
If the victims call on the given number, the fraudster asks them to first pay a refundable processing fee/GST/enrollment fee to claim the lottery. If the victims make the first transaction, they keep demanding more money on one pretext or another.
If the fraudsters sense that the victims have grown suspicious, then they claim that the lottery amount has been increased. They stop communication if the victims start demanding their money in return.
