The Vadodara Cyber Cell has received details that there is a conspiracy going on to get in touch with senior citizens and lonely persons and get caught up in sweet talk. According to the police, after checking the profile of a senior citizen man or woman, a certain group contacts them on social media and then makes the contact more intimate.
The gang consists of young men and women and they present the details of how they are compelled with the photos. Sometimes other people’s photos or morphed photos are also used by the gang. Then there is the trick of sending a gift to a senior citizen by saying sweet words. In order to release a parcel of this gift, different types of fees are paid online and fraud is committed.
