INTERNET BANKING BASED FRAUD | Cyber Helper | Lucky Xhetri


RBI warned you about this app, here’s how scammers use it to steal your money
Earlier this year, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) warned citizens about a remote desktop app called AnyDesk that is being used by fraudsters to rob people. Since then several banks including SBI, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Axis Bank and others too have issued an advisory to their customers about the AnyDesk app that is being used by fraudsters to steal money via UPI. Having said that, the AnyDesk app or the platform per se is not malicious. It is a very useful tool for IT professionals as it allows users to connect to different mobiles and systems remotely over the internet. In layman terms, it is like a screen-sharing platform. Apart from AnyDesk, there is another app called TeamViewer QuickSupport which does the same thing. But very few people seem to be aware about AnyDesk and fraudsters are using this to their advantage to trick gullible people and steal money online. Here’s in these video how a typical scam using AnyDesk app or TeamViewer QuickSupport takes place.
