December 6: Nepal Police has urged the people concerned to use official channels for sending and receiving remittance from abroad to avoid potential legal issues and the risk of cyber fraud.
Stating that some Nepali citizens who are in foreign employment are found to have used unauthorised channels to send money back home at less cost than while transacting officially, the police urged the people concerned to avoid illegal transactions of remittance.
It has come to the attention of the police that unknown people allure Nepali foreign migrant workers to pay them in foreign currency, promising that an equivalent amount in Nepalese rupees will be deposited in their bank accounts in Nepal, according to police spokesperson Kuber Kadayat. He said that cases of cyber-rackets are increasing and the engagement in illegal remittance transactions heightens the risk of falling victim to cyber fraud. -- RSS
