Keep Yourself Safe
To avoid online scam, always keep in mind that under any circumstances do not give your personal details to the person in front. If a call or SMS comes from an unknown number, ignore it and if the person is harassing you, block and report that number. It is wise that you should not fall into any greed because hackers are making people their prey only by giving greed.
