November 29: Nepal Police has requested the general public to be cautious about online payment as a group of fraudsters have been defrauding general people in the name of online delivery of goods.
Such fraudsters have robbed general public of thousands of rupees in the name of online delivery of goods, said the police. The general people should be cautious and not make online payments without the confirmation of the delivery of goods they order, said Deputy Inspector General of Police Kuber Kadayat, the police spokesperson.
"Lately, there has been a rise in complaints relating to frauds by advertising goods on social media and luring customers to make advance payments and blocking customers' accounts without delivery. Therefore, people should go ahead with online transaction only after checking whether or not the relevant page or account is official," he said.
The police have also urged the people in general to report such frauds to the police at the Kathmandu Valley Crime Division, Minbhavan or the district police office. -- RSS
