New Delhi, Apr 07: There are several ids being shared to make a contribution towards the PM Cares Fund that was set up to fight COVID-19.

The cyberbad police has now issued an advisory busting the fake ids that are in circulation. As the cyber fraudsters know that many of the individuals and organisations donate funds into the bank account of PM Cares and UPI ID, the fraudsters are creating several fictitious accounts and UPI IDs so as to mislead the citizens and see that the donations are remitted into their accounts by fraudulent means, the cyberbad police said.
