They’ve posted advertisements on social media, claiming that if someone allows Jio company to install a mobile tower on their property, they’ll receive a monthly payment. They will also provide employment for tower maintenance. After falling for this scam, people have become trapped in their deceitful schemes.

Cyber Criminals Distributing Fake Documents

Following these ads, people have fallen into the trap of the gang. When people click on these ads, a website opens, prompting them to fill in personal information like name, address, email ID, and phone number. Scammers then contact them and offer to pay for this data. Cyber criminals have also produced fake documents and handed them over to people.
