What is the matter
A woman from Mumbai wanted to book three tickets. So she had booked the ticket from IRCTC website. But, all her three tickets were booked in RAC. She then tagged the IRCTC Twitter handle on Twitter. Also asked about seat confirmation. After tweeting, the woman received a call. In which a person told the woman that he was speaking to an IRCTC Customer Care Executive. Then asked the woman to pay Rs.2. After this the woman lost 64 thousand rupees.
Keep these things in mind to stay safe from fraud
- If you are booking train tickets online then don’t go to any wrong website and book tickets. Select the official website for this.
- If you have RAC ticket. So don’t tweet to confirm it.
- If you are buying tickets from an agent, trust the same agent who always helps you with tickets.
- Do not post any of your private information through your social media handles. If someone claims to be an executive of IRCTC, don’t believe them. Do not share pin number or account number. Do not make payments to anyone.
