Beware of honey trap! Such gangs target men by roping in women to set the trap. At first women befriend men through Facebook chat from fake accounts.
Such women video call men and may even take their clothes off. If a man follows suit, the call is recorded soon to trap him. The gang will then continue to blackmail such trapped men in the social media for money and bleed them dry.
The police dealing with cyber crimes have shared the following tips on this count:
(i) Keeping social media accounts locked and not accepting requests from unknown;
(ii) Not to text or respond to unknown numbers or answer video calls;
(iii) Not to entertain strangers and exchange information with them on social media; and
(iv) Not to follow their instructions.
