Let us tell you that reviews on Google Maps are also a part of this. This is a new kind of scam. Scammers send a message to people on WhatsApp and offer part time jobs. They send the location of some hotel or some place and ask to give 5 star rating. People think that there is no problem in getting money for giving rating on Google, but this is a scam of a different level.
As soon as you give rating, your e-mail ID becomes public. Yes, because reviews on Google Maps are not private. These fraudsters ask you for links and screenshots after review. When it comes to giving money, they give a telegram number and ask you to share the screenshot of the review there and give a code. After this they take bank details and other information from the people and then the fraud starts. href="https://www.abplive.com/technology/most-dangerous-passwords-of-2023-which-do-not-take-any-time-to-crack-2554304">Year Ender 2023: The most dangerous passwords of the year, which do not take any time to crack
